Ariana Grande-Butera, an American artist, married her fiancé, Dalton Gomez, in a private ceremony over the weekend.

According to TMZ, the wedding took place at her home in Montecito, according to family sources who requested anonymity.

According to the source, there were fewer than 20 guests in attendance, including family members from both sides, and the ceremony was small and intimate.

“There wasn't a lot of pomp and circumstance.

In an informal ceremony, she and her fiance, Dalton Gomez, said their "I dos."

“It was really just for them. It’s unclear how long they planned to do it this way in other words, whether it was impulsive or not,” the source said.

Dalton, a real estate agent, and Ariana started dating in early 2020.

The duo got engaged just before Xmas and have spent a lot of time together during the pandemic.

The embattled Nollywood actor Olanrewaju James, also known as Baba Ijesha, has reportedly been granted bail by the Lagos State Police Command.

Consider the following: After being arrested for suspected sexual molestation of a 14-year-old child, Baba Ijesha has been detained for weeks.

His lawyer, Adesina Ogunlana, reported the news on Monday, according to The Nation.

“About an hour ago, Baba Ijesha was granted bail. We're also fine-tuning the bail. On the basis of his fitness, he was given bail.

“He hasn’t been released. He will be released after his bail conditions have been met,” the paper quoted his lawyer as saying.

The rapper also appears in a music video in which he portrays a bank robber dressed similarly to the bank robbers in the Spanish TV drama Money Heist. The album also includes a sample of a similar Italian folk song. You can see it in the video below.

This serves as the follow up to his March drop ‘Alone with Me’. He’s reportedly working on new album at the moment which should come out soon.

THE RETREAT is a short LGBT survival horror film with a close plot and an 82-minute runtime. I expected this film to be decent (based on the trailer), but I didn't expect it to be this brutal and good.

Basically, I can only conclude that this film exceeded my wildest expectations. The majority of the time, it builds a fun little world with a badass survival story. There will also be blood, a lot of bodies, and fascinating characters played by fantastic actors.

A different kind of LGBT survival horror movie

If the whole “survival LGBT”-theme sound familiar, it may be because you’ve watched Colin Minihan’s What Keeps You Alive (2018). Also, if you haven’t then you really should. It’s a total guilty pleasure kind of survival horror movie with a brilliantly f*cked-up villain.

As was the case with What Keeps You Alive, this movie avoids all the worst LGBT tropes. Mostly because the characters are more than just their sexuality. However, we do get actors who clearly have no problem kissing someone of the same sex.

Now, you might think this is always a given because two ladies kissing by default is just hot. However, as a gay woman, I can assure you that it’s obvious when the actors are doing “friendly” kissing rather than the steamy ones. Always such a letdown because it ruins the entire illusion of them actually being a couple.

Also, I want to mention that this survival horror movie doesn’t “just” have gay main characters for diversity points. The LGBT element of the story is key to the survival story since the villains are actively seeking out and hunting down gay people.

Several familiar faces

Since The Retreat is a Canadian production, we do get to see quite a few Canadian actors who you’ll probably recognize from other movies or TV series. For me, Aaron Ashmore is certainly a very familiar face. Most recently from the Netflix horror-fantasy series Locke & Key (read our season 1 review here).

Also in a small – but key – role, we see Munro Chambers, who I’ve pretty much adored in everything so far. You’ll recognize him if you’ve watched the 2015 cult movie Turbo Kid. Of the movies we’ve reviewed here on Heaven of Horror, Munro Chambers has been in Knuckleball (2018) and Harpoon (2019) and loved him in both. With The Retreat, he’s become a true favorite of mine!

I wasn’t actually that familiar with the two women in the lead roles even though they have quite impressive IMDb resumes. Tommie-Amber Pirie (Killjoys, Bitten) plays the tough and independent Renee with Sarah Allen (The Expanse, Being Human) playing the happy and understanding (to a point) Valerie. Both are awesome and kick-ass in their own way in this movie!

Watch The Retreat in theaters or On-Demand

Pat Mills is the director of The Retreat and it comes as absolutely no surprise that he has worked on several LGBT movies and series in the past. He knows how to tell these stories the right way. I mean, he even directed a wonderful gay Christmas movie on Lifetime this past holiday season. With this movie, it’s obvious that Pat Mills also has a great take on the horror genre!

The writer is Alyson Richards who has worked with Pat Mills before. In fact, they made a short film together back in 2001, so it’s a pretty solid filmmaker duo. She also produced his award-winning comedy Don’t Talk to Irene (2017). More importantly, in terms of the genre productions we cover, she also co-wrote the screenplay for the horror-mystery The Sublet from 2015.

I did actually have fairly high hopes for The Retreat, and yet, I can only say that this movie was even better than I had ever dared hope. The story is interesting (and far too realistic) with wonderful performances by all the actors. So, my point is simply that you need to check out The Retreat because this movie does everything right. Yes, including the survival horror story!

THE RETREAT is out in theaters, as well as on Digital HD and VOD, from May 21, 2021.

Crime / Gunmen Burn Police Station In Delta, Kill 3 Officers
« Last post by Miss Ifeoluwa on May 17, 2021, 05:47:23 PM »


Some armed gunmen have shot dead three police officers after storming a police station in Nsukwa Police station in Aniocha South Local Government Area, Delta State
 
The incident happened yesterday, according to Vanguard.
 
The gunmen, who attacked the Police Division at about 2 am, also left some police officers with bullet wounds.
 
Residents of the area said they were woken up from sleep by the sound of sporadic gunshots in the peaceful community.
 
A community source, who pleaded anonymity, said the gunmen laid siege to the station, lamenting that the community is now “leaving in fear, people are panicking over what happened last night.
 
They were four policemen on guard; they killed three police officers while others got injured.

“Even police motorcycles at the premises were burnt. They destroyed vehicles and carted away their ammunition.”
 
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Ari Ali, who confirmed the attack, said the command lost three officers, describing it as a black day for the command.

The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has opened up that he's not interested to contest in the 2023 presidential election.
 
He said his decision is for now.
 
This is according to his media aide, Laolu Akande, who disclosed this via a statement issued on Monday.
 
“Prof. Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election, but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as Vice President in the current administration to address all the compelling issues in the country and concerns of Nigerians, including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges,” he said.
 
“Therefore, we ask that people desist from such unhelpful permutations while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, peace, and prosperity in the land.”
 
Akande’s reaction followed a volunteer group mobilising support for Osinbajo ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
 
The vice president’s spokesman said Osinbajo “is not in any way connected to this website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction.”
 
Osinbajo is one of the politicians rumoured to be nursing a presidential ambition as Nigerians gear up for the next election cycle which is about two years from now.
 
The vice president, a lecturer and pastor, running mate to the then APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
 
President Buhari will complete his constitutionally permissible two terms of eight years in office in 2023.
 
The APC will likely hand its presidential ticket to the south of Nigeria–a region where Osinbajo and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu come from.

World News / Israeli military launched another series of air raids on gaza
« Last post by Miss Ifeoluwa on May 17, 2021, 03:26:05 PM »


The Israeli military launched another series of air raids on the Gaza Strip early on Monday, hours after its caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the attacks on the Palestinian enclave would rage on.

Explosions rocked Gaza City from north to south in a bombardment that was heavier, wider and lasted longer than the air raids that killed at least 42 Palestinians and wounded dozens more on Sunday. One Palestinian was reported injured, Aljazeera reports.

At least 198 people, including 58 children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip since the latest violence began a week ago. More than 1,300 Palestinians were also wounded.

Earlier, Hamas, the group that governs the Gaza Strip, fired rockets towards the Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Beersheba. Israel has reported 10 dead, including two children.

Some United States legislators are questioning whether a $735m approved weapons sale to Israel by President Joe Biden’s administration could be used as leverage amid the continuing bombardment of the Gaza Strip, the Washington Post has reported.

The arms sale, which Congress was notified of on May 5, a week before the current Israel-Palestinian escalation began, includes Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs), which are used to turn bombs into precision-guided missiles, according to the newspaper.

A video has surfaced online showing the moment a young Yoruba nation agitator urged 'Yahoo Boys"  to come and settle in South West.

In a video shared online, the lady advised internet fraudsters to settle in the South West region because the leader of Yoruba Nation agitators, Sunday Igboho, will not allow any police officer to arrest them.

The unidentified woman said this at the rally Igboho held in Osun state on Saturday, May 15, to demand the creation of Yoruba nation.

”All you Yahoo boys should come to Yoruba Nation. If you come to Yoruba nation, no police officer will dare come and arrest you. Police officers will be coming into your room to arrest you and you will be looking.

Please come. There is room for you. All Yahoo boys, Igboho asked me to tell you there is room for you.” she said
