Birdemic: Shock and Terror

The new 'Troll 2.'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Hear me out: "Birdemic: Shock and Terror" is jaw-droppingly awful, which makes it absolutely awesome. It’s the new “The Room” and/or “Troll 2,” so if that means anything to you, no need to read further — just go place your order.

The Terror / Dementia 13

Horror films get the good scrub-over they’ve always deserved


Horror

Rod Lott
Two Roger Corman classics from 1963, his own “The Terror” and Francis Ford Coppola’s “Dementia 13,” make their Blu-ray debut in — wait, hold up: What business does a pair of public-domain staples have in the high-def format of Blu-ray?

Alfred Hitchcock: A Legacy of Suspense

How's 29 hours of Hitch suit you?


Thriller

Rod Lott
Alfred Hitchcock's early films are no stranger to bargain-priced box sets of DVDs, but not usually all in one place. Or almost in one place.

Good Neighbors

For rent: 1 bed, 1 bath, 1 serial killer. Pets OK.


Thriller

Rod Lott
While the box reads "Good Neighbors," the credits read "Good Neighbours." Regardless of spelling, the Canadian thriller from writer/director Jacob Tierney is intelligent, suspenseful and almost unpredictable.

The Steel Trap

Bank on it!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Not to be confused with 2007’s Steel Trap, 1952’s The Steel Trap is an obscure slice of semi-noir in a Leave It to Beaver world. That’s exactly why I liked it, and it’s made an overdue DVD debut courtesy of Warner Archive, which probably still has vaults overflowing with this sort of stuff.

The Girl

Every relationship has a Hitch.


Drama

Rod Lott
Sienna Miller looks every bit the Hitchcock blonde she plays in The Girl, an HBO original film about the relationship between actress Tippi Hedren and the director who gave her not only her big break, but big trouble.

Not-so-funny pages

A graphic novel by an OKC artist tracks the trials and tribulations of a most unusual teddy bear.


Comic Book

Greg Horton
Ivan A. Alexander is a teddy bear, and in the graphic novel aptly titled The Story of Ivan A. Alexander, Dorshak Bloch tells the origin story of this displaced and anthropomorphic bear. Dorshak Bloch is a pseudonym for Oklahoma City artist Dustin Oswald, owner of Bombs Away Art.
