This is not your high school teacher's Old English epic poem, but something palpably of this century. In the age of heroes comes the mightiest warrior of them all, Beowulf, to aid King Hrothgar by slaying the monster Grendel. The troubled Danish kingdom has been bedeviled by the demon for years, but in killing him, Beowulf incurs the undying wrath of the beast's ruthlessly seductive mother. After killing her, Beowulf returns to the castle and becomes king. Years pass, and all seems well. Is the age of demons finally over? Before he dies, however, Beowulf must face his past weakness and expiate his sins--if his kingdom is to survive

Rose cannot accept the medical diagnosis that her daughter, who suffers nightmarish trances, is going insane.

It is revealed that the town had been evacuated thirty years earlier due to an unstoppable, still burning underground coal fire. A local motorcycle cop ends up pursuing Rose and Sharon into the outskirts of the abandoned and cordoned off town on a rainy night, where they both suffer simultaneous crashes and black out. Rose awakens to find that everything is lit by an unearthly, luminous mist and that her daughter is gone from her SUV.

Pulp fiction by Quentin Tarantino( Book )

"For many viewers Quentin Tarantino's films, especially Pulp Fiction (1994), defined American cinema in the 1990s. The films are hard, fast, funny, stylish and filled with clever allusions to other works of popular culture - they epitomise chic 90s post-modernism. Pulp Fiction was also a phenomenal cult success and one of the first films to be hotly debated in internet chatrooms and on fan websites." "Dana Polan sets out to unlock the style and technique of Pulp Fiction. He shows quite how broad Tarantino's points of reference are and analyses the film's considerable narrative accomplishment and complexity. Where middlebrow opinion tended to write off Pulp Fiction for its violence and its worship of cool, Polan shows how the film exemplifies new kinds of engagement with cultural and social codes (such as those of racial identity)."--Jacket
