Warum zieht es Zuschauer immer wieder ins Kino, wenn Menschen blutig gemeuchelt werden? Grausame Killer wie Jason, Freddy Krueger und Jigsaw wurden in eigenen Filmreihen sogar zu Helden des Bösen mit großem Kultfaktor. Der Blogger und Filmkritiker Philipp Stroh zeichnet in zwei Bänden die Geschichte der Faszination am filmischen Schrecken nach. Es werden wieder die Messer gewetzt! Im zweiten Teil seiner Reise folgt der Autor der blutigen Leinwandspur der 80er Jahre - mitten hinein in den fortsetzungsreichen Horrorboom mit seinen unzähligen Slasher-Variationen. Zwei der bekanntesten Maskenkiller werden dabei genauer unter die Lupe genommen: Ring frei für Freddy Krueger aus Nightmare on Elm Street vs. Jason aus Freitag der 13.! Doch auch Fans des subtilen Horrors à la Shining, Poltergeist, The Ring und The Grudge kommen auf ihre Kosten - bevor es ans Eingemachte geht: zunächst mit Scream und in den 2000ern mit Final Destination, Saw und Hostel, High Tension und Martyrs. Von J-Horror bis Torture Porn, von New French Extremity bis hin zur Selbermachästhetik des Found Footage-Horrors - Autor Philipp Stroh nimmt alle Spielarten des Horrorfilms unterhaltsam auseinander.
At 24, Philippa Moore is overweight, unhappily married, and still living in her hometown of Hobart, Tasmania. After a wake-up call in a department-store changing room, Phil suddenly realises that she is on the wrong path. With determination she starts to shed the kilos and makes a confronting discovery: She is in charge of her own life. Starting over again in Melbourne, she launches an award-winning health and fitness blog, Skinny Latte, and finds the courage to leave her marriage. She then sets out on an international odyssey, travelling the length and breadth of North America and throwing herself into every new experience she encounters. An intuitive friend predicts that true love is in her future, but, still scarred from her failed relationship, she can scarcely bring herself to believe it. When she arrives in London, though, she finds the life she has always been looking for, coming to realise that excuses for not doing the things you dream of doing are just that: excuses. The Latte Years is the brave story of a life restarted, of the battles still to be won once the ´after´ photo has been taken. Told with humour, insight and a great deal of coffee, it shows that we have the power to change anything and inspires us to live our best, most authentic life. Philippa Moore is a writer, editor and award-winning blogger who has held a lifelong fascination with language and stories. Her writing has been published widely, and she also hosts a popular podcast, Book Ends, featuring interviews with leading contemporary writers. She was the author of the award-winning health and fitness blog Skinny Latte Strikes Back, which was one of the UK´s most popular health and fitness blogs. Philippa now lives in North London with her husband, Tom, and many pairs of running shoes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Philippa Moore, Federay Holmes.

Covering everything from becoming a mother to running a business, Hollis tells hilariously personal stories about how shaving her toes taught her a lesson about judgment, or when using the word ´´tired” around the mother of a newborn-baby is dangerous, and why dreaming about a Louis Vuitton Speedy bag was actually a really good professional move for her. Along the way, she shows us that the only thing getting in the way of accomplishing our dreams is our inability to accept the most fundamental truth: we choose the lives we live every day.

When we are lost in the storms of grief, only God can pierce the darkness. How can a broken, bewildered woman who lost her sister, a brilliant PhD nurse, to suicide, her youngest son to respiratory distress caused by an accidental drug-alcohol interaction, on the night of her brother-in-law´s memorial service, her sister-in-law to cancer, four years to the day after her son´s death, want to get out of bed and live - out loud and in color? Simple. God revealed Himself to her and breathed life back into every nook and cranny of her very being. In Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace, author Susan B. Mead shares her personal story of how God came to her in the midst of grief with a display of love, insight and comfort far beyond her expectations. Have you ever held the hand of God? Felt God caress your broken heart? Heard Him speak out loud? Seen Jesus dancing with your lost loved one? Seen your loved one in the holy presence of God - on his mercy seat? Do you want to? In her vibrant, inspiring, and up-close-and-personal style, Susan freely shares how her encounters with God in the midst of overwhelming grief led her to a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him that truly restored her soul. Are you ready to laugh through the tears and dance - with Jesus? Susan B. Mead, a medical technologist with an MBA, spent 22-plus years in the diabetes sector with Johnson & Johnson prior to founding the blog Agog4God.com. After Susan lost her youngest son, she came to realize that even when things get broken, discarded, or replaced, people matter most. Susan is a charter blogger on the Bible Gateway Blogger´s Grid, has been published in Medical Laboratory Observer (MLO), is on the path to becoming a Chaplain with the IFOC and has been described as a solid, comforting voice in a messy world. 10% of the profit from Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace will benefit Water for Life to help dig water wells in remote locations around the world. 1.
