Halloween Steelbook Edition: 35th Anniversary [Blu&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Jamie Lee Curtis
I first saw Halloween when I was 13 and it scared the living daylights out of me. It still does. It has everything that a great horror film should have and has it in spades.

Firstly it has the unstoppable force that is Michael Myers with that horribly blank, ghostly mask (actually a William Shatner mask that they modified) who as with all really scary bogie men never speaks and who relentlessly and mercilessly hunts down and kills his prey.

I am very impressed by this tiny wireless speaker. It is a doddle to set up and pair with a tablet's bluetooth function and once set up it produces a beautifully rich sound which belies its size (and price tag). It is ideal for small rooms - kitchens, bedrooms etc but I imagine it would work well in most rooms in a house, unless you have rooms the size of the ones they have in Buckingham Palace. I have also played it nowhere near maximum and it still sounds sharp and clear even at low levels. It also sounds fine at maximum too.

My mate dropped about 350 notes on a Sonos wireless speaker and while the quality of that is undoubtedly fantastic it really is unnecessary (at least… Read more
