There is nothing like watching a creepy movie late at night at your local movie theater. Restless anticipation lingers in the air as the movie begins – the hope along the way – to get scared and walk away from the theater with a glad it was only a movie attitude.

But when a horror movie promises to be based on a true occurrence – the outcome is more troublesome. One now has to leave the theater wondering if there really was any truth to the tale or just Hollywood embellishment at its finest.

Thus is the state of THE CONJURING movie. This hair-raising paranormal flick is one of the best horror movies I have seen as of late. The cast of characters did justice to their parts as well as the striking unfolding of the plot.

The base is simple – a family moves into a haunted house - not unusual in today’s paranormal frenzied world. But the story grabs your attention right from the beginning as the house becomes alive with paranormal activity aimed at the entire family.  No one is safe from the evil intentions directed their way. One daughter sleep walks, (eerie in itself) the other messed with as she sleeps. The clapping game seems to delight the entity as it begins to toy with the family.  And things get progressively worse. Then comes Ed and Lorraine Warren. This special duo in demonology has quite a background as they become the family’s only hope for survival.

Today there are a lot of homes on the market, many of them foreclosures. Bank owned homes are often purchased in “as is” condition – meaning that the bank sells it just like it is, giving little or no information to a potential buyer as to the houses prior state.  That includes the history of a house.

Purchasing a home can be an exciting time for any family, especially kids. Mom and dad might be up to the challenge of a fixer upper.  The children excited by a new bedroom or back yard.

But what if you found out that a crime had occurred at the house, a suicide or murder? Would you still buy the property?  What if you found out about an incidence after you have made the purchase and already moved in? Would you walk away? Or would you grin and bear it? 

It’s an interesting dilemma - especially in a haunting. Those with a bit of faith might be up the challenge. But in THE CONJURING religious faith is lacking in the family, apparently aiding the evil entity in its cause. Divine intervention comes into play. One might leave the theater wondering about their own spiritual state.

Whatever you feel or believe, THE CONJURING is very entertaining and worth your time. A great summer movie for paranormal fans!

A Reliable Wife


To be reliable one must be trustworthy, dependable, consistent and of good character. In that sense, I would say that we are all unreliable to some degree. For haven’t we all let down someone who counted on us? A husband perhaps. A wife? Lover? Our children? Or how about a friend in need? Or what about that boss that expects a deadline to be met and it fails to happen? Despite trying our best efforts we all fall short of the mark. But it doesn’t keep most us from trying. But since we are all too human, mistakes are part of our existence.

When people are lonely, they might do something out of the norm for a bit of companionship. Thus is the state of Ralph Truitt, who has lived with his heartaches for many years and now has come to the realization that he needs someone in his life. So Ralph runs an ad for a reliable wife in a Chicago newspaper and soon finds himself facing a beautiful woman, which despite his reluctance will suit his purpose. But will Catherine Land be as reliable as he hopes? A dutiful wife, who despite Ralph’s wealth, will find simple pleasure in the way he chooses to live? Will she be kind? Faithful? Truthful? Fill the void in his heart?

Catherine Land has led a rough life. She comes to Ralph with secrets and ambition to find a new existence of leisure, eventually bringing along her lover for the ride. But when faced with the choices she must now make, Catherine finds that perhaps the void in her own heart might be the one thing money can’t buy.

A RELIABLE WIFE by Ralph Truitt is a bumpy ride of romance, lies, deception and murder. Set in Wisconsin 1909, the author did a fine job of bringing to life the rugged countryside as well as digging deep into his character’s souls. This was an interesting read meant for adults. The book is available through and other online outlets.

True Haunting


TRUE HAUNTING:  Book Review:  *****

Ghosts. So many people don’t believe in the paranormal yet there has to come a time where a skeptic might just question their existence. It’s usually because someone has yet to encounter something mystic or unexplained or perhaps they just don’t care to acknowledge its existence. Yet for those of us who believe in God, we are worshiping the most powerful supernatural being imaginable. To be a bible believer one encompasses a belief in demons and angels and divine intervention.  And yet people only want to consider the good in religion, not the existence of hell or its dominions.  

So what is a ghost? According to Ed Becker a ghost is a person who has refused to accept his or hers death for whatever reason and they have attached themselves to a possession or perhaps a living being. To think of one stuck in that realm is sad indeed. 

In 1970 Ed Becker and his wife became the proud owners of an apartment building with 2 units. Ed put his time and effort into restoring the old establishment. The couple would rent out the first floor and live on the second with their newborn daughter. The only problem – there are already tenants living on both floors.  Perhaps one could live with a ghost if the ghost minded itself and left the living to live out their lives in peace. But the ghosts living with Ed and his family wanted no such peace. Ed’s ghosts were determined to make themselves known, brewing mischief whenever they could, creating a morbid atmosphere for the first and second floor occupants residing in the building. This true life accounting of what Ed and his family faced and how they handle the situation is fascinating. This story happened in the 1970’s a time where there wasn’t a lot of help out there for someone in Ed’s predicament and the few experts, including a priest, did little to help the situation.

TRUE HAUNTING by author Edwin F Becker is a powerful, gripping story that kept me glued to the pages. If you never believed in ghosts, you might just after reading this account. True paranormal fans will love reading this creepy tale of a building’s possession and just how far its ghostly occupants will go to try to claim what they believe to be still theirs. A great read by a talent author. Available at

IS Elysium worth your time?
The year is 2154 and earth is a mess. The world is over populated, diseased and people have little hope for change. But in the distant sky, a glimmer of another world stands out. It’s Elysium – a space station that was designed by the rich and powerful as their own personal paradise.  Elysium is only a dream for ordinary folk, who struggle to make ends meet, working in cruel and sadistic environments. But people are suffering from disease and pollution. It’s a parent’s worst nightmare when they can get little to no help for a dying child.

Past criminal Max (Matt Damon) is trying to stay on the right path and mainly out of jail. But after exposure to radiation, he has only 5 days to live. Desperate to live, Max will do just about anything to stay alive, including being transformed into a robotic mess. But Max didn’t count on the determination of Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) or her sadistic hit men, who are out to stop him and take over Elysium. As time begins to run out, Max and his team will have to make choices that will determine the course of earth’s future and perhaps save the love of his life’s little girl, who has Leukemia.

ELYSIUM is an action packed movie with all the twists movie fans will love. From the start Max is intriguing as his life quickly changes after a freak accident on the job. Now on a mission to get to Elysium for a cure, Max returns to his criminal roots and lives up to a nun’s insight.

Unfortunately Leukemia isn’t so easily cured today as it is in the movie. In Elysium’s miracle pod cancer can be cured within seconds, but in real life it takes time, patience and treatments that can have painful and unpleasant side effects. Sometimes the battle is lost.

 Childhood leukemia can attack children from the ages of 1-14 and is the most common of children’s cancers. But with today’s medical technologies, a child with Leukemia has a good chance for long term recovery.

Over all, ELYSIUM was a very entertaining movie and a good summer flick.
