Teardown of the Day: 10 Rockyfield Road

Teardown of the Day: 10 Rockyfield Road, Westport CT
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 10 Rockyfield Road, in the Coleytown section, is in process. Built in 1954, the split-level has 1,624-square feet, is situated on a 1.01-acre property, and changed ownership in June for $831,000. Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Susan Granger at the Movies

“A Quiet Place” ... With its sequel scheduled soon, this eerie, angst-riddled “creature feature” stars Emily Blunt & John Krasinski as a married couple, living on a secluded farm in upstate New York after most of the civilized world has been decimated by an alien invasion of hideously hungry predators who detect their prey by super-sensitive sound ... streaming on demand

“Child’s Play” ... Mark Hamill (known best as Luke Skywalker) takes on the role of the iconic demon doll Chucky, turned deadly because of a manufacturing glitch ... also streaming on Hulu

“Get Out” ... Giving an astutely satirical jolt to “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” meets “The Stepford Wives,” Jordan Peele has created a social thriller that’s one of the most critically acclaimed horror movies in years. His subversive, surrealist sequences are stunning, depicting the soul-sucking danger posed by so-called “liberals” amid racial tension in America ... streaming on demand.
