My name is Lucy, and I’m a 23 year old Film Studies graduate who wants to share her thoughts with the world. (or anyone who’ll read them) I live with my boyfriend who thankfully shares my love of films and TV, otherwise he’d probably go crazy hearing me talk about them all the time. I am originally from the North East of England, but decided to move down to Kent in order to find media related work (I currently write social copy for an agency). I used to write for Bloody-Mess.net and you can find my archived stuff here.
I joined Jumpcut Online in 2018 and occasionally write reviews over on that blog, which you can check out here. They’re a great team of people so I recommend giving them a follow!
I have a particular fondness for horror films and those that have darker themes, but I love a wide variety of film genres. Because of this, my blog will feature any film I feel is worth talking about, whether that’s for good or bad reasons. Film has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I was the kind of child that would watch a film so many times that the VHS would break and we’d need to buy another, a problem that we no longer face in the world of DVDs and online streaming!
The first horror film I ever watched was the original Saw film because I felt that was preferable to the X Factor final on the other channel. (younger me had amazing taste, I know) That particular film has stuck with me ever since and I even have a jigsaw tattoo on my ankle because I love it so much. But my all time favourite film is The Silence of the Lambs, and any of my friends will tell you how much I love Hannibal Lecter. I have a lot of Hannibal related stuff, including my two Funko Pop figurines. My boyfriend recently bought me a signed copy of the cookbook from the TV series, though I’m under strict instruction to only cook with animal meat!
In my spare time I enjoy watching films (obviously), binging a good show on Netflix, reading, using Lush products or playing video games. My favourite video game series is Fallout.
If this about section hasn’t bored you to death, feel free to stick around and read my thoughts! I’m always up for a healthy debate as well if you don’t like what I have to say.
