Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

Hogan’s Fable

An Oklahoma City filmmaker’s feature film debut is set to premiere at this weekend’s Austin Film Festival.


Features

Molly Evans
One cold night in early January 2011, an Oklahoma City-based filmmaker returned from a drink at the bar to housesit his parents’ old, empty abode. But the familiarity of the attic, staircase and the basement door quickly faded when a mass blackout affected the entire neighborhood. Vinnie Hogan has replayed this horrifying scenario since childhood, and he met this dark fate not only with the illumination of his cellphone but also with the idea for his first feature film.

Bob Ingersoll gets emails every day. He reads each one. The senders often turn into friends. Those friends lead him to other areas of interest related to his work. But Ingersoll does not want this story to be about him.

Coming attractions

Nearly wiped out by a recent twister, the city’s iconic Winchester Drive In Theatre promises a swift reboot.


Features

Louis Fowler
When May’s bout of wicked weather rampaged across the metro, images of the devastation of Moore overshadowed — and rightly so — the comparatively minor destruction in Oklahoma City. After heavy winds calmed and the flooding subsided, many area businesses found themselves having to pick up their own pieces.

‘Fear’ itself

How the Norman noir ‘Stark Fear’ achieved B-movie immortality.


Features

Rod Lott
