Classic Benjamin Bob Clark Uncut Double-Feature! Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (1972)A troupe of method actors and their despotic director head out to Cocount Grove, Florida where, as a prank, they exhume a corpse called Orville and are subsequently horrified when his similarly deceased friends emerge from their graves to play some deadly games of their own.Filmed as America experienced its post-60s comedown, director Bob Clark's first horror feature began a truly terrifying trilogy that continued with the powerful anti-Vietnam war statement Dead Of Night and climaxed with the classic seasonal (and subsequently re-made) scarefest Black Christmas. This weird and unique horror debut - so lysergic in places you can almost smell the Florida grass - is a long way from Clark's later Murder by Decree, which pitted Sherlock Holmes against Jack The Ripper in the fog-shrouded streets of Victorian London.Featuring a cast assembled from various friends, including future Cat People re-make writer Alan Ormsby (who with co-cast member Jeff Gillen went on to direct Deranged, another masterpiece) as well as Jane Daly (one of American TV's most recognisable faces), Clark created one of US independent horror cinema’s offbeat classics. Like Let's Scare Jessica to Death, Axe, Devil Times Five and Death Bed, Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things shows what can be done with inspiration, determination and a limited budget. An unsettling, minimalist electronic score from Carl Zittrer and some of the most outrageous zombies you'll ever see also await within this cult horror classic. And remember, just because somebody's called Orville, it doesn't mean that they're your very best friend ! Dead of Night (1972)Soldier Andy Brooks has been declared dead by his commanding officer in Vietnam but this doesn't stop him returning home to his parents Charles and Christine as a lifeless supernatural entity bent on revenge against the society that sent him to his grave.Made a full three years before 'the boys came marching home' from one of America's least successful foreign sorties, Dead of Night - also known as Deathdream - is a dark-hued contemporary horror tale comparable to The Crazies, Targets or Ladybug Ladybug. Its symbolic portrayal of suburban terror is shot through with an uncomfortable dose of social realism as a once tight-knit, loving family is quite literally torn apart. A terrific cast sees future soap star Richard Backus making his big-screen debut (in a role originally intended for Christopher Walken) as the ghoulish Andy plus Larry Cohen regular John Marley (It Lives Again, The Godfather, Blade) and the compelling Lynn Carlin (Superstition, Terror on the 40th Floor, Taking Off) both excellent as Andy's parents. There are also strong performances from Anya Ormsby and Jane Daly who also featured in Bob Clark’s earlier Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things. An atmospheric, disquieting and ultimately moving zombie chiller (loosely based on W.W. Jacobs’ classic fable The Monkey's Paw ), this Canadian-US-British co-production is also a powerful anti-Vietnam war statement made before these became a staple of 70's American cinema. As relevant today as it was in the mid-70s, it proves that old adage: Be careful what you wish for - it might come true…

A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.” (John Adams)In Charles River Editors’ History for Kids series, your children can learn about history’s most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way. The concise but comprehensive book will keep your kid’s attention all the way to the end. John Adams has become one of the more popular presidents in history relatively recently, but it was not always so. For most of his life he was seen as a bit of an outsider, different from his fellow first presidents in his temperament, birth, life, and politics. Adams and his son were the only presidents out of the first seven who were born north of the Mason Dixon line, and he was not an easy man to understand or work with. Not only did he have few friends, but he also often fell into long-term quarrels with those he had. Politically, Adams shared Washington’s preference for Britain as well as his preference of noninterference. However, while he was certainly the more significant man in his work and his governing, he could never seem to move out of Washington’s shadow. Even worse, his presidency was seen as threatening to the very essence of American liberty with the Alien and Sedition Acts, and his loss to Jefferson in 1800 was a repudiation of the Federalists that left Jeffersonians in power until John Quincy Adams was elected in 1824. His presidency is still viewed relatively unfavorably.

It's Newfoundland, 1986. Fourteen-year-old Bun O'Keefe has lived a solitary life in an unsafe, unsanitary house. Her mother is a compulsive hoarder, and Bun has had little contact with the outside world. What she's learned about life comes from the random books and old VHS tapes that she finds in the boxes and bags her mother brings home. Bun and her mother rarely talk, so when Bun's mother tells Bun to leave one day, she does. Hitchhiking out of town, Bun ends up on the streets of St. John's, Newfoundland. Fortunately, the first person she meets is Busker Boy, a street musician who senses her naivety and takes her in. Together they live in a house with an eclectic cast of characters: Chef, a hotel dishwasher with culinary dreams; Cher, a drag queen with a tragic past; Big Eyes, a Catholic school girl desperately trying to reinvent herself; and The Landlord, a man who Bun is told to avoid at all cost. Through her experiences with her new roommates, and their sometimes tragic revelations, Bun learns that the world extends beyond the walls of her mother's house and discovers the joy of being part of a new family - a family of friends who care. 9780735264588 N N ©2017 Heather Smith;(P)2017 Penguin Teen http://www.audible.de/pd/B078KMST9L?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B078KMST9L?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Sea Adventure for Kids: Story About a Grandpa Sea Creature and His Granddaughter: Adventure Stories for Kids (Unabridged) 4.95 AVAILABLE Sea Adventure for Kids: Story About a Grandpa Sea Creature and His Granddaughter: Adventure Stories for Kids (Unabridged) Sea Adventure for Kids: Story About a Grandpa Sea Creature and His Granddaughter (Unabridged) Jeff Child An old sea creature teaches but also learns a lesson.

With a theater degree in hand, she was determined, she was confident, she was ready to work hard. So, what could go wrong? Uh, basically everything. The path to being a professional actor was so much more vast and competitive than she’d imagined. It would be eight long years before she landed her iconic role on The Office, nearly a decade of frustration, struggle, rejection, and doubt. If only she’d had a handbook for the aspiring actor. Or, better yet, someone to show her the way—an established actor who could educate her about the business, manage her expectations, and reassure her in those moments of despair. Jenna wants to be that person for you.    With amusing candor and wit, Fischer spells out the nuts and bolts of getting established in the profession, based on her own memorable and hilarious experiences. She tells you how to get the right headshot, what to look for in representation, and the importance of joining forces with other like-minded artists and creating your own work—invaluable advice personally acquired from her many years of struggle. She provides helpful hints on how to be gutsy and take risks, the tricks to good auditioning and callbacks, and how not to fall for certain scams (auditions in a guy’s apartment are probably not legit—or at least not for the kind of part you’re looking for!). Her inspiring, helpful guidance feels like a trusted friend who’s made the journey, and has now returned to walk beside you, pointing out the pitfalls as you blaze your own path towards the life of a professional actor.   This title is narrated by a full cast. Narrators include: Jenna Fischer, Rainn Wilson, Natalie Zea, Sean Gunn, Derek Waters, Reed Birney, and Mark Proksch.

John Openshaw est en effet persuadé que le Klu Klux Klan veut sa mort. Tout cela pour une sombre histoire de famille qui implique son oncle, planteur en Floride. Sherlock Holmes est une des plus grandes figures de la culture populaire et son seul nom est synonyme de mystère policier, de brouillard londonien et de crimes énigmatiques. Depuis 1887, Sherlock Holmes est le détective privé par excellence. Devenu très rapidement un véritable mythe, avant même la sortie de sa soixantième et dernière aventure en 1927, Sherlock Holmes demeure pour certains un héros de fiction créé par Arthur Conan Doyle. Mais pour le plus grand nombre, c'est un homme qui a vraiment existé", dont les enquêtes sont rapportées par son ami, le docteur Watson. Les exploits de Sherlock Holmes ont été traduits dans le monde entier, ils ont été adaptés de multiples fois au théâtre, à la télévision, en BD et au cinéma. 1. Language: English.
