Over the past couple of years, my team of guest writers and I have been working hard to make The Popcorn Muncher as good a film blog as it can possibly be.
This year, The Popcorn Muncher is entered in the UK Blog Awards, in two categories – ‘Young Persons’ and ‘Arts & Culture’. We need you to give us a hand as part of the public vote stage of the competition.
By clicking the links below, you can vote for The Popcorn Muncher in each of the two categories using any valid email address.
Thank you for voting and I would love it if you could share this post on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #UKBA15.
In the midst of the usual dreck that fills cinemas over the Halloween period, there was something special this year. That special film was Australian chiller The Babadook, from first-time director Jennifer Kent. With plenty to think about under the surface, it’s one of the best horror films of the last few years.
As well as being a psychological horror movie, The Babadook is an in-depth study of the ways in which human beings deal with grief and loss. Through the great performances of Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman, the film says an awful lot whilst showing very little on screen.
Note: Do not read past this point until you’ve seen the film.
