feelings come back to the surface. A little spoiler
: the lake might hide a whole submerged and very much cursed city in its depths.
I'll skip the horror one with the cursed twin, but The King's Daughter sounds intriguing, although 2015 to date is a long time in the making..ReplyDelete
It is probably an absolute crap which is why it has been delayed for so long :) It's sad, as it has quite a strong cast.Delete
The King's Daughter sounds like it has a good cast and some potential, but yes, 5 years in the making does not bode well. Usually means a bad script unable to be saved by editing.ReplyDelete
An absolute royal crap most probably.Delete
Gotta agree with Debra on 5 years not boding well. The story line does sound good though and the cast as well, but this is one I'll wait to hear positive reviews from before diving in myself.ReplyDelete
We shall judge it after we see a trailer.Delete
Wow for the latter. Sounds seriously creepy. The other interesting.ReplyDelete
Creepy is the word these days.Delete
Neither one's my type. 1st one: no one likable (in my opinion). 2nd one: foreign. 😏 Oh well, onto the next one! 🤷♂️ReplyDelete
Geez Louise, what do you have against foreign programmes, they are most often superior to anything Hollywood makes.Delete
It seems scary watching the story of the twins ..ReplyDelete
