We are now down into our final, top five films I would NEVER recommend to a parent with anxiety.  These last five have affected my parenting practices in ways I never even realized.  Some I’ve never even seen becuase I just always knew better.   Watching them to write this series has taken many, many hours with breaks of Disney movies and other things to take my mind off of them and I’m still deeply impacted by them.  The one today is part of an elite list of films I actually refused to watch but because of this list, I had to do it.

Today’s movie brings back a film most of us saw when we were young enough to identify with the daughter. Now, watching it and identifying with the mother, I look at “white noise” on the TV in a whole new way…

Film #9 considers the question; What if your own child turned against you no matter how much you loved them, how much compassion you showed to them, no matter how much empathy you tried to teach?  What if your baby really isn’t your baby, possibly not even human?

So, today I thought we would take a drive through another, similar story to yesterday’s escape from Silent Hill.  Another dynamic horror duo came along, long before Alyssa and Sharon with a story that preys upon our anxiety when it comes to children, manipulation, religious insanity and death.  Your death, not theirs… sorry for any confusion, there.

DC may have entered the Rebirth era, but the effects of the 5-year-long New 52 initiative are still being felt — and in the case of this new statue, that sentiment can be taken literally. Sideshow Collectibles has partnership with Prime 1 Studio to create a New 52 style statue of the Man of Steel himself, Superman.

The statue is limited to one per person and is expected to arrive between August and October 2017. Continue reading
