Solar Impact: The Destruction of London is British disaster event / horror movie. Distributed by Dazzler. With a title that sounds like it has been plucked directly from ‘The Asylum’ school of filming, and a trailer that provided B-Movie vibes the Silver Hedgehog’s expectation bar was set at low and we sat down and watched the movie.Details
There is a long line of Movies that have the synopsis in the title –
Snakes On a Plane 2006, The Towering Inferno (1974), Lesbian Vampire Killers 2009. Joining this esteemed list is Vampires vs. the Bronx.
Vampires vs. the Bronx is a horror comedy. It takes aim squarely at the family end of the film spectrum and as it features Vampires, it has a little gore…..
We are on a quest to make our home as smart as possible, from video doorbells to voice-controlled audio systems. Next on our hit list was to upgrade our thermostat from a dumb manually operated cream box on the wall, to a smart thermostat.

Myself and JJ started watching The Invisible Man with a conversation about Horror films. I like horror films such as Saw, Carrie, Train To Busan. What really freaks me out is psychological horror, the kind that tortures your mind leaves you in suspense and then hits you hard, films like original IT, Women In Black, Black Swan, Disturbia. JJ on the other hand prefers these psychological thrillers while I hide under a cushion! Here is The Silver Hedgehog review of The Invisible Man….Details
