The New Sewing Machine Horror Movie

Posted by Alfonso McDaniel in Uncategorized | Comments Off on The New Sewing Machine Horror Movie

If you are into sewing and every thought about seeing a film that would relate to what you like to do, well you’re not alone. A lot of people tend to gravitate towards films that they can relate to. Like musicals for musicians etc. but if you want something a bit ironic and want to see something scary and have something to do with sewing. Well a movie like Annabelle can be a good choice for you see.

It doesn’t tackle sewing tips or showcase different types of sewing machines. In fact, the clip was less than two seconds and it didn’t play a big part in the story’s twist. If you’re into looking for real information about sewing machines, you’ll have to look elsewhere. There are different types of machines like those made for quilting or those made for embroidery. But if you’re more concerned with getting entertained, read on.

In it’s very first trailer, you will see a pregnant woman sewing something on her machine, gets cut because of the needle and then stumbles upon a fire raging in her kitchen and when she stumbles over while trying to escape the fire, something invisible (apparently a demon) pulls her back into the flames. If that sounds interesting enough then seeing this horror film might be a good idea for someone who likes sewing.

This American supernatural horror film came out just last 2014 and was directed by John R Leonetti. Interestingly, it’s a prequel and a spin-off to prior-released film called The Conjuring. And is actually inspired by a doll called Annabelle. It’s starred by Annabelle Wallis, Alfred Woodward and Ward Horton. It was released in October 3, 2014 worldwide.

Despite the fact that the movie received very mixed reviews, it grossed over $255 million dollars contrary to it’s $6.5 million dollar budget making it one of the highest grossing horror movies of all time.

Again, it’s a spin-off-slash-prequel to The Conjuring. This films tells an origin story of the creepy doll – apparently regarded as the most dangerous item in Ed and Lorraine Warren’s (real-life paranormal investigators) collection. The movie revolves around a couple named Mia and John, who are expecting parents and getting ready to live a happy life together in 70s Los Angeles. Sadly, all their happy plans and preparations for their future got messed up when a couple of crazy, murderous satanic cultists attacked them during the night in their own home. Good news is that they survived. But the bad news is that a demonic mark was left inside their home, which is focused on the doll in their upcoming baby’s nursery.

Similar to the problem with the Paranormal Activity franchise, this movie’s drawback is the limitations of the plot and the production ends up dragging the story to end up into a very repetitious pattern in the flow of the scenes. A huge part of the film is dedicated to various scenes of “husband leaves wife at home alone and something demonic and scary happens while he is away” and comes home too late and this makes John look like a bad guy for not being around all the time at the same time due to repetition, the movie makes the audience too comfortable.

In reality, knowing the status of horror movies in the United States today provide audiences with low expectations coming into Annabelle. It’s not quite the same as it’s predecessor The Conjuring. But it still delivers what it’s supposed to deliver. A spin-off prequel to a very good horror movie.

How Crossbow Killings can be the Scariest

As a scare junkie, they tend to be adventurous on seeing other ways of killings. By the classic axe and machete, loud and crude way of killing with a chainsaw, some will go for the violent but more finesse methods with a gun or knives. But some will go for a much unconventional way of killing and that is with bows. Specifically crossbows. They have the range, efficiency and sustainability of any weapon. But how can you be good at it to be scary?

Buy the best possible bow – there’s a huge gap between a bargain crossbow from a top-of-the-line make. Yeah, the bargain one is of course going to be cheaper but you will get what you pay for, it’s not going to be as good or built as well or be as accurate and the reliability goes out the window and sooner or later it will fail when you take the shot of your life. As everything else in life, you get what you pay for. Spend a few more extra dollars and get very best you can afford and you’ll never regret it.

Choose the fastest arrow – both crossbow and compound bow makers constantly push to break the speed envelope. You can make a arrow go faster by increasing the bow’s draw weight. That’s why draw weight is very important in archery. How fast is fast enough? Most people tend to lean towards an initial velocity of at least 300 fps. And that figure will give you enough energy to takedown any big-game animal and will minimize arrow trajectory at a much greater distance and that makes shooting at longer ranges much easier but never losing accuracy. You might be surprised that some bows are starting to go over the 400 fps limit so look out for innovations in different bows in the upcoming years.

Don’t hesitate to use a scope – though most crossbows today will come with open sights, any sort of scope sight will do you much better. First of all, these optical devices will make for a much accurate shot much easier. As far as magnification is concerned you can pick from zero to 5x. then inside the scope is the reticle, it can be easily identified as a configuration of both horizontal and vertical lines and sometimes with any object projected or suspended across the sight. This comes with different types. But the most popular is the multi-reticle scope. Parker brand of crossbows have scopes.

Use high-quality arrows or bolts – unless your arrows or bolts fly like straight like a laser beam, you will never hit your target precisely. Cheap arrows that are inferior to standards will fly all over the place. That’s why you should invest your money on good quality arrows and don’t forget that they should be designed specifically for crossbow shooting and nothing else. Try to look into makers like Easton, Carbon Express and Gold Tip. Make sure they are cut to the proper length and have the appropriate fletches. Aluminum and carbon arrows will serve you well for whatever you’re going to use them for but the most innovative and high-tech are still the carbon fiber arrows.
