Tetsuo: The Bullet Man

Man and machine make for much sci-fi mayhem


Rod Lott
In the tradition of Frankenstein, The Fly, Hulk and your last nightmare that involved a toolbox comes "Tetsuo: The Bullet Man," the overdue third piece in Shinya Tsukamoto's twisted trilogy that began with 1989's "Tetsuo: The Iron Man."

The troll movie without a popcorn sex scene.


Rod Lott
Vampires can be felled by garlic. Werewolves, by silver. Frankenstein's monster, by fire. Trolls, by, um ... well ... hmm.

Monster Brawl

If wrestling were like this, I'd watch.


Rod Lott
Imagine there were a pay-per-view pro wrestling championship battle in which the fighters were not your Hulk Hogans, but hulking creatures. Would you watch it?

Let’s be ‘Frank’

National Theatre Live’s ‘Frankenstein’ is alive for two days.

If you love Sherlock like I love Sherlock, you might be interested in this filmed play showing tonight and tonight only: Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein.

To steal all the details from our own Gazette:

“It’s alive! It’s alive! National Theatre Live, to be exact, which presents the monster hit Frankenstein on theater screens at 7 p.m. tonight and tomorrow only at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, Cinemark Tinseltown USA and Norman’s Hollywood Spotlight 14. Directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours), this whacked-out adaptation stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Dark Shadows’ Jonny Lee Miller. Visit fathomevents.com.”

It’s my understanding at the two switch roles midway through the play, which sounds like Something to See, provided you’re not seeing anything at deadCENTER, that is. —Rod Lott

Mad Monster Party?

We'll just drop by.


Rod Lott
Before Hotel Transylvania, there was Mad Monster Party? (question mark theirs), a 1967 quasi-classic of stop-motion animation from Rankin/Bass — the company behind all those old Christmas specials that still air every year, from Rudolph to Frosty. What keeps this Party from being as perennial is that it's three times as long.

Tim Burton builds a better 'Frankenweenie' and it’s alive! It’s alive! It’s alive with humor and heart.


Rod Lott
One imagines Frankenweenie is the movie director Tim Burton has been waiting to make his entire life.

Rounds of boos

From the dawn of cinema to its dreadful dregs, plenty of Halloween treats will keep your eyeballs alert.


Rod Lott
This Halloween season offers no shortage of scares on the silver screen — even beyond Sinister, Paranormal Activity 4 and Atlas Shrugged: Part II!
