Fans of the Heir deserve Voldemort

  • Haunted house to sell? Examples of past listings: Trulia
  • Current haunted properties listed include one known as Caenen Castle, aka Renee Kelly's Harvest, listed for lease or sale 1/2018. On the 2016 Haunted Restaurant line up. KCStar
  • Alien Ranch in Arizona is still looking for a challenger. Read the story. Vice
  • Worried that your haunted house will be difficult to sell? Maybe not. According to USNews some people actually like the extra ambiance. Just saying, do your homework before you buy in on that one. Spend a night with a ghost/s to see what you can look forward to 24/7.
  • Recommend the Sagebrush Inn, Taos, New Mexico. - Updated since my stay. From past experience, having a phantom arm around you in the middle of the night keeps the mystery alive for a return engagement. We had the usual electronic issues. Not so fun, the dog totally freaked out while alone in the room during our breakfast break.
  • On the reading list:
    1/The Afterlife Revolution, Anne and Whitley Strieber. UnknownCountry
    2/Out on Foot: Rocky Elmore's odd and unusual encounters as a U.S. Border Patrol Agent.
    3/Owls and UFOs. Mike Clelland has a follow-up to The Messengers. Stories from The Messengers (coming soon). Mike's Blog

Voldemort. Too good not to share -- Fans of the Heir crowd pleaser. Brilliant fan-made film fleshes out the back story on Tom Riddle and the horcruxes. Studio execs nixed and then relented. Agreements were made and then all parties involved signed off on this, The Verge.

Given the response - CNET for example (outnumbering the critics), it makes one wish the interest level were enough to inspire a full fledged pre-Voldemort film.

Another fan-made film (2013) highlights the battle between Dumbledor and Grindelwald. Seen on the Broad Strokes YouTube channel, the creators feature Harry Potter fan-made, fan-based content. The current vid promotes the next project: The Great Wizarding War and suggests rebranding and moving in a new direction. Follow on Twitter.
