The Man Who Created Halloween — Irwin Yablans


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
The Man Who Created Halloween is not director John Carpenter, but producer Irwin Yablans, who came up with the idea of the tormented babysitter story, inadvertently changing forever not only the face of horror, but the potential of independent film.

The Factory

The ending is a crime.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Can a bad ending ruin an otherwise OK movie? In the case of The Factory, I believe it can.

Dexter: The Seventh Season

A cut below the previous.


Television series

Rod Lott
There's no way to discuss the seventh and penultimate season of Showtime's hit Dexter without acknowledging how the previous year ended. Therefore, if you haven't finished the sixth season, stop reading now. You've got work to do.

The Fog

For a great ghost story, bank on it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Once considered a disappointment (because anything after Halloween unfairly would be), John Carpenter's The Fog today is a genre-audience favorite — well-admired if just shy of qualifying as a modern horror classic. Its Blu-ray debut from Shout! Factory cements that.

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Two cops, three crooks, a local accountant and the mayor in two adjoining hotel rooms? No, it’s not The Village People Go to Vegas.

Tickets are $5-$20. Call 232-6500 or visit carpentersquare.com.
