Both could be interesting, though I'm drawn to The Rising a bit more since a love a ghost story.

It is the opposite for me as I do love me Keeley Hawes, plus all their babies will be blond :) How creepy is that?

Creepy little alien children. I'd die if I fell pregnant now. That would be such a nightmare. And to birth one of those weird little kids? Yikes! I'll be interested to see how that one ends.

I like Keeley Hawes and maybe we should get sky too.

DEZMOND said...

Especially through an immaculate conception, where is the fun in that?

DEZMOND said...

We do ever so adore her!

Theresa Mahoney said...

For real. All the work and none of the fun leading up to it? No thank you!

DEZMOND said...

Don't know how Mary did it.

Midwich Cuckoos sounds absolutely nuts. I saw a movie recently where the woman was forced to raise an alien baby. That looked terrifying enough. Imagine having to carry it and go into labor as well? I'll pass on this one. LOL

It was made after a popular sf book.
