In all honesty, I love watching movies just as much as I love reading books. I have my book blog to chat about the books I read, and I wanted something similar for the movies I see. I created Movie of the Month as a way to talk about the movies I watch, especially the good ones. Maybe you’ll even find some great flicks to add to your watch list!

I wanted to see Marrowbone because it looked creepy and I devour horror movies like… air, I guess. Every so often I check out what movies have just been released and ones that are coming in the future, and I write down all the horror movies that look good. And one day I found Marrowbone.
What I thought would just be a run of the mill haunted house horror movie turned into so much more. I won’t say how or why, but just know that this movie is not what you go in expecting it to be. It is so much more.
I’ve written about horror movies in the past, and how I’m not a fan of ones that are about senseless killings and meaningless jump scares. Well, Marrowbone throws both of these out the window. There is not one senseless or meaningless thing in the entire film.
I think one of the best parts of Marrowbone was the acting on behalf of all the people in this film. It’s incredible to see young people really shine, and this was no exception. I must say that the acting of George MacKay was absolutely brilliant, and he blew me away.
There was honestly no competition for my favourite movie of September 2018, even though I watched my fair share of them. Marrowbone was just a cut above the rest.
What’s a great movie you watched recently?
