Masquerade Tours: Into the Arms of Morpheus Tour

Ms. Nichols was kind enough to indulge our curiosity as to her top ten fantasy/sci-fi films she likes.

I am sorry to admit this, but I really don’t watch a lot of tv as when I get time I spend it with my kindle.  BUT these films I love and have watched more times than I can remember.

The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (I was blown away, completely enamored when I saw this in the theatre.  I can remember sitting there awestruck.  It pulled me into the books.  The other two films followed suit…)
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Stardust (It’s romantic, it’s entertaining and well acted.  I really love Claire Danes)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (I enjoyed all of them, but this is probably my favorite.  It held the correct balance between the incoming darkness and fading innocence)

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (So, technically this is horror.  Sensuality, violence and history pulled me in from the beginning and it never let go).

High Spirits (This is really a very silly movie, but it’s a childhood favorite of mine.  There is a castle in Ireland, there are ghosts, there’s lots of cheekiness and an amusing little drinking scene between Steve Guttenburg and Peter O’Toole).

Splash (Another childhood favorite.  In my girlhood memories, Daryl Hannah had the coolest job ever.  She got to pretend to be both a mermaid and a ghost).

Twilight (I know some folks who really wince about Twilight.  Whatever.  I was lured.)

The Mummy (This is just a fantastic, action adventure fantasy film.  It’s like a ride.)

Sylvia has always harboured a solitary obsession with Morpheus, the Greek God of Dreams. She's brought it with her from her adolescence in a village of Northern England where she grew up, to the university in Manchester where she now studies.

Nyx is the Goddess of Night, and has spent the centuries stewing in an ancient, unrequited love. Not easily pleased, her attention is drawn to a voice chanting its devotion and desire for her, and she seeks the source of it.

She is not the only god playing in the realms of men, however. When the God of Death, and Morpheus himself become aware of Sylvia and this new devotee, the stage is set for the gods to secure their worship, or for a mortal to become one of them.

Jessica Nicholls is originally from Northern Illinois.  She lived in Manchester, England for just over ten years where she studied and had her children.  She now lives in the Middle East with her husband and two children.
