Hell House: The Book Of Samiel

What would you do if there was a house in your neighborhood that was supposed to be truly evil from the events that have taken place in it? You know like an Urban Legend… well Hell House: The Book Of Samiel is a film about just that experience. A long time ago a dad did not want his daughter to be with the guy she was with and forbid her to see him.

Well of course with young love, 9 outta 10 the girl is not going to listen and probably get caught sometime within the process. One night the Dad follows the girl and finds her getting busy in the car with her love. Let’s just say that things get out of hand and the blood flows freely. Now teens like Steve and Paul wanna take their girlfriend to the house to party and play doctor.

Steve’s Dad is a real estate agent so he steals the keys to the house and the party is on! They get there and weird things are happening like Sasha wanting to take a bath and feels something touching her and Steve gets acquainted with some nasty cockroaches. Danny is abused by her father and has a very timid personality and is easily tapped into by the restless spirits residing there.

These kids wish they never got involved with the house but it is too late the book of Samiel has been opened and there is no turning back. Who would of thought that the whispered rumors were real and the house doesn’t want them to ever leave especially since Danny is a virgin and just what they need to be able to roam the earth freely again!

Flying By

Sometimes in life you make choices that you later grow to regret. In Flying By, George who is played by Billy Ray Cyrus seems to have fallen into this category perfectly. When George was young he loved to play music with his friends. They even had their own band and would practice in his garage. His father hated the racket and never offered him any kind of encouragement.

Now it's later on in life an George has a family of his own. He still holds a great love for music that seems to have been passed down to his daughter Ellie. His pretty blond wife Pamela is played by Heather Locklear who doesn't have any remote interest in music. She seems to like the finer things in life but also seems a little cold towards George.

When he goes to his High School Reunion alone and he is reconnected to his musical past she becomes disgusted and embarrassed that he wants to play gigs at his age. Now his old band has reunited about five years prior and want George to join them again. Will he chose his passion over his wife? Or will he decline and remain miserable with the nagging thought of -I should of done it feeling?

I thought it would of been more of a heart felt film but it wasn't. It just seemed to be a little bland for my liking. Are they making this so that Billy Ray Cyrus can try and jump start his musical career since he was only a one hit wonder and his daughter is already a teen legend? It wasn't a horrible watch but it had way too much of the band and not enough family.
