The Wrong Number (Fear Street #5) by R. L. Stine (Book Review)

It begins as an innocent prank, when Deena Martinson and her best friend Jade Smith make sexy phone calls to the boys from school. But Deena's half-brother Chuck catches them in the act and threatens to tell their parents, unless the girls let him in on the fun. Chuck begins making random calls, some even threatening. It's dangerous and exciting. They're even enjoying the publicity, and the uproar they've caused. Until Chuck calls a number on Fear Street.

To his horror, Chuck realizes he has called THE WRONG NUMBER. The jokes are over when murder is on the line. The murderer knows who they are and where they live — and they have nowhere to call for help.

One thing about the Fear Street series is that some of the books are definitely more mature in subject and writing style then others. I read these when I was in Jr. High... Continue reading

Cut (2000)

Not a whole lot to say about this movie honestly. It's pretty straight forward, nothing awful, but nothing great. Continue reading

A group of college kids travel to a small, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of several grisly murders that happened there. But when the kids get to Madison County, the author is no where to be found and the towns people act like they haven't seen him in years. They also say that the killer never existed and the murders never happened.

I expected this to be garbage. Redbox users rated this as a horrible filmed in the backyard sort of movie. So, I was happy when it turned out not to be nearly that bad... Continue reading
