Detention of the Dead / The Demented

They put the “Zzzzz” in “zombies.”


Rod Lott
Ten years ago, we didn’t have enough zombie movies. Now, we have too many of them, which might not be a problem if most weren’t so bland and unimaginative. Detention of the Dead tries — not too hard, mind you — to distinguish itself by being a comedy. Technically, I suppose it is; in execution, it fails.

Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen's latest is immersed in melancholy as the tale of one woman's yearning for normalcy.


Aimee Williams
Cinema has seen its fair share of manic females and nervous breakdowns, but no one captures bourgeois-Anglo neurosis as astutely as Woody Allen.

Jazz it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

See Vizzutti literally blow your mind at 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday as part of the 44th Annual SWOSU Jazz Festival in the Fine Arts Center at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, 100 E. Campus Drive in Weatherford. Tickets are $3-$10. Call (580)774-3063 or visit

Witchboard / Night of the Demons

Oh, what a 'Night!'


Rod Lott
Some things never change; Witchboard opens with an argument over intelligent design and references crises in the Middle East. Yet some things do; cheesy horror movies like Witchboard used to open wide across this great land of ours, thriving and profiting on their way to assured cults via home video. Nowadays, they have to skip theaters entirely. The loss is ours, collective nation!

In Fear

Fear itself.


Rod Lott
In Fear is a British take on that hoary Hollywood premise of two 20-somethings menaced by a third. Although the film is largely improvised, viewers will notice only one new thing about it: The hipsters at its center are en route to a music festival. Had Anchor Bay Entertainment wished to exploit that fact for the Blu-ray release, it could have retitled the film Bonnarubes, Coach-hella or Glastonburied.
