Movie Review: Kill Katie Malone

Kill Katie Malone was a movie that I’d never heard of until recently and I’m glad I got the opportunity to check it out! The first thing you notice is the familiar face of Dean Cain who appears in the horror/thriller.

The story follows a group of friends who purchase a box that supposedly has a ghost trapped inside it. The box is opened and people start to die and die horribly! As people keep getting knocked off by the angry little girl ghost the remaining survivors begin investigating where the box came from and what actually happened to the girl.

The friends find out what happened to the little girl and that over the decades whoever owned the box died horrible deaths so they decide to “un-own” her but it doesn’t work out so good. Needless to say, the girl was tortured and died a horrible death.

Next Bond film must cash in on Casino Royale's winning gamble

After 2002's Die Another Day was reviled by critics, many fans and by veteran Bond star Roger Moore - despite being the highest-grossing 007 adventure at that time - producers admitted they wanted to return to the traditional formula.

They hit reset and the result was 2006's Casino Royale with Daniel Craig as a more craggy, edgy 007.

It was swiftly followed by direct sequel Quantum of Solace. The next instalment - so far known only as Bond 23 - is on hold while studio MGM is up for sale so it's the perfect time to look back on Bond and find the winning formula for the next film.

In this guest article, actor/writer/producer and self-confessed movie and comic book geek Danny Arroyo - whose upcoming films include Kill Katie Malone, Groupie, and Repo Chick, which was featured on here last November - takes a look at which Bond movies deserve a licence to thrill.
