7:04 pm - Who Knows?
"Early this morning, the Mirror broke the news (so take this with a grain of salt) that Jenna Coleman had originally intended to leave Doctor Who during the upcoming Christmas special, titled "Last Christmas," but had a bit of a change of heart, and that she'd asked to remain for the first half of the upcoming season nine"

Translation: Oh shit oh shit, our rumour we knew was wrong but posted for attention was wrong, quick let's make a new rumour backtracking and covering our asses so we were *right* until THEY changed their minds...and it'll get us more views and readers!!

And this is why I have issues with rumours.

1:17 am - ScareCrooooow! (What a cool guy!)
And thus ends Scarecrovember with yet another movie of a killer scarecrow at Trisk.

This time out, it's a mentally challenged guy who gets wrongly killed, comes back from the dead, and seeks revenge, in Dark Night of the Scarecrow.

Sounds a lot like a *different* kinda crow...

8:45 am - The Devil is in the Details
People should remember I wasn't a big fan of Repo! the Genetic Opera, but I saw enough quality and style there, and the concept of the next project was enough to make me curious.

So of course after watching it, I gotta post to Trisk my thoughts on it, the Devil's Carnival.

It turned out much better than Repo, IMO.

11:27 pm - Oojah Boojah
Sneaking in a quick review, since I escaped the house last week, which means I had something to post to Trisk!

I got out to see Ouija, which was my attempt at seeing a horror movie for Octoberween, which then failed miserably by constant delays.

Ah well, I got to see it finally, and here's my review.

Not a great flick, didn't really do enough to make itself stand out, but I still liked what it gave me.

7:18 am - ScareCrooooow! (I'm different!)
Not only did I kick off the month at Trisk with a quick review of a new movie about evil scarecrows, I continue that with the first full review, with Night of the Scarecrow!

A fun little 90s flick that was WAY better than expected, with a fun villain, great, unique, and memorable deaths, and far too many stapler jokes from me.

1:51 pm - Croooooow!
Decided to get around to posting a long overdue quickie review to Trisk.

I watched Scarecrow back in, uh...March? April?

But hey, it's November, so I gave it a quick rewatch to refresh my brain, and here's my review!

1:17 am - TRICK OR TREAT
BOOM!

*drops a NEW review all over your faces!*

But it's not the first?!

NO, it's Halloween! So what else is Trisk gonna review?

JOHN CARPENTER'S HALLOWEEN. The original 1978 classic.

I've been planning and lying about this for way WAY too long.

10:10 pm - Back from the Dead
It's October 30th, Devil's Night, so that means I made my yearly watching of The Crow this morning.

And since I don't have a Crow movie review to link to of my own, you should totally go watch Scott's review over at the GPC.

This movie is my favourite, as well as Scott's, so his reviewing it means a lot to both of us, and I was more than happy to land a hand. Literally.

Also, why not dig up some classic Trisk with the closest I've come to reviewing The Crow, with the terrible and fun Killjoy?

11:50 pm - Cracking Day
Just as things are calm, we've got a rythym going, and work will be starting up soon for dad (If he doesn't have too much issues with his impending surgery...) it seems great, right?

So of course that's the cue for something to go wrong!

And that something would be the bake element in our stove no longer working.

And by 'no longer working' I mean, somehow cracks into at least a half dozen pieces. o.o

I've heard of bake elements dying and no longer working, this is...interesting.

2:01 am - This Movie Belongs in a Museum!
This may not have been the movie I planned on reviewing, but Trisk needs as Trisk wants, so things changed, and I found this other movie that just so happened to be set on Halloween?

Well, how could I say no to that, right?

Which brings us to Museum of the Dead, full of zombies and cannibals and only one hallway.

Oh, this is not gonna be good...

11:19 pm - Oops
I totally intended to get in a few Trisklets over the weekend.

At the worst, I was thinking today. But instead I went to the site and ended up editing the next review.

So, oops, but at least I got that done...
