Swallow Film Review: Visually Stunning And Incredibly Jarring

We have to say kudos to writer/director Carlo Mirabella-Davis on his first narrative feature film “Swallow” which paints a terrifying picture of life for a housewife who is tormented by her past, deeply unsatisfied, and suffering from a very dangerous type of mental illness. Hunter, brilliantly played by actress Haley Bennett, is the portrait of the perfect housewife. She cooks, cleans, and is always eager to please her obnoxious husband Richie, played by Austin Stowell, but what we learn over the course of the film is that things are not always as they appear. Soon Hunter’s facade of living the perfect life begins to crumble, as secrets from her past begin to surface and she develops a mental/eating disorder called Pica, which causes her to want to eat dangerous non-edible items such as marbles, push-pins, batteries and even at one point a screwdriver. This disorder leads to Hunter putting herself in a very dangerous cycle of self-harm to which her husband and his equally terrible parents show zero sympathies. She is a woman trapped and stuck in a cycle of …

Jodie Whittaker Will Return For Dr. Who For Season 13

We can say that it comes as no real surprise that actress Jodie Whittaker, who is now into her second year as The Doctor, will be making a return for “Dr. Who” season 13 as well! Whittaker took on the infamous role of The Doctor back in October of 2018 marking the first time the role has gone to a female in the series 55-year history. The past twelve roles for The Doctor have all been men. Whittaker revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that she will be commandeering the TARDIS for at least one more season. Despite suffering misogynistic attacks from fans who were angry that their hero was no longer a man when she took over from Peter Capaldi, Jodie Whittaker has quickly found her feet alongside new showrunner Chris Chibnall. We think she has been absolutely splendid in the role. “Yes, I’m doing another season. That might be a massive exclusive that I’m not supposed to say, but it’s unhelpful for me to say [I don’t know] because it would be a massive lie! I absolutely …
