The VVitch. Yeah, that’s two V’s.

Apparently, that’s how it was spelled in the time that people believed in such things. This was a great film. Horror, thriller, suspense, and what the heck moments galore. We both liked it, but we also, you know, had our nit-pick sessions.

Listen in. Join the convo. And if you’re in Guelph on October 25th, 2019, come and meet me. Details below.

And have you seen the awesome write-up about me by Tony Jones of @HorrorDNA? It was in @Inkheist and then featured as a top-five article of Horror for September in @ThisisHorror.

 

Check it out. I was very flattered and thankful.

Hereditary! Toni Collette, as always, kills it! Oh yeah, some Ancient Rome edification.

Normally, the movies we talk about on the podcast are films that I had seen before. Not this one. This was the first time seeing this beauty. And all I can say is… wow!

Ancient Rome

This interesting little fact is something I read over and over in different books, fiction, and non-fiction.

Romans ate their meals lying down. I know you’ve seen in those movies set in the past where people were lounging while slaves fed them grapes around a pool filled with floating flower petals. Now that did happen, so I wouldn’t say it was historically inaccurate but I will say it wasn’t a common occurrence. The lying down part was common. Lying down on your side and eating food was how they ate back then.

I couldn’t imagine leaning on an elbow and shoveling food in my mouth. Wouldn’t your arm fall asleep? Makes my neck hurt thinking about it.

This habit was so ingrained that Cato, a senator protesting some decision or inaction in the Senate, decided that he would eat all his meals seated on a chair and at a table. That was his protest! Love this stuff.

The Changeling…whoooooo, ghosties!

Changeling

Now, this movie scared me as a kid…I remember it being very creepy. Watching it now though, if there had been a pillow nearby, I would have fallen asleep. Listen in as we discuss this classic ghost tale.

A few people that know me know that I am an Ancient Roman History geek, so I am going to throw in a little interesting or fun fact every week from now on because…well, I want to.

The Romans used stone or metal tablets to write the daily news or ‘Acta Diurna’ (daily acts) and posted them in heavily-trafficked areas. A pre-cursor to the newspaper but very heavy.

Enough historical edification for today…
