Any cries of nepotism in the case of Rashida Jones officially can be buried, and the dirt above patted with a shovel for good measure.

Chernobyl Diaries

Another reason not to visit Russia, if you needed it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Famously, tragedy plus time equals comedy. Do they also equal horror? Up to you, but Chernobyl Diaries goes for it anyway.

Why Stop Now

Don’t even start.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Why Stop Now is a comedy that tries too hard to be a comedy. C’mon, you know the kind: Although grounded in reality, the film presents characters so quirky, they may as well come with signs around their neck to signal their stock roles, i.e. “Precocious Sibling” and “Black Sidekick.” Incidentally, this one fronts both of those examples.

Aroused

Porn stars are people, too.


Documentary

Rod Lott
As director Deborah Anderson states at the beginning of her documentary, Aroused is not a story about pornography, but about women. For half of its 69-minute running time (deliberate?), I believed her.

Dead Souls

You don’t want ‘Soul’ custody.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Dead Souls, we can prove something about the Chiller cable network's original features that Remains could not: Source material is not to blame for their pervasive generic nature — it's the economy, stupid.

Now You See Me

Now you do.


Thriller

Rod Lott
On second viewing, the sheer amount of artifice on which Now You See Me is built comes to the forefront. Yet knowing its secrets doesn't detract from its status as an enormously entertaining confection.

Bread + butter

Local music video directors LAMAR+NIK are making serious waves in a quietly thriving art form.


Music

Zach Hale

If you think the music video is a dying art form, you haven’t being paying attention. Sure, it has probably been a good decade or so since MTV has shown one, and if a Top 40 track does get the video treatment, it’s usually not the most artistic visual representation.

All Hallows' Eve / Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of Fear

Boo! (Repeat as necessary.)


Horror

Rod Lott
'Tis the season for horror anthologies. As if V/H/S/2 and Horror Stories weren't enough to keep your armchair warm as the cold descends, here are two more for the Halloween season …. and many more Halloween seasons to come.

CFN

Gazette staff
If you’ve spent some time on the Internet (specifically, the more risqué parts of the Internet), you know who Jesse Jane is.
