Within / The Dead and the Damned

‘Damned’ if you do.


Horror

Rod Lott
I love horror films far more than most people, but I do not, as some accuse, love them all blindly. In fact, two new to DVD are among the worst I’ve seen in the year thus far.

The Others

THE LIGHT WILL KILL THEM!!!


Horror

Rod Lott
Among all Hollywood's stabs at ghost stories and haunted-house movies of late — your "Paranormal Activity" and whatnot — none can hold a candle to the old-fashioned Gothic chills of 2001's "The Others," still mega-creepy after all these years and now on Blu-ray.

Bedlam: Season One

Has nothing to do with football, everything to do with ghosts.


Television series

Rod Lott
Bedlam Heights has an occupancy problem. Seems so few people wish to rent an apartment in a building that was once an insane asylum. Fewer when they learn the place is haunted by the ghosts of its former residents.

Apartment 143 [Emergo]

This is why landlords require deposits.


Horror

Rod Lott
Cross Paranormal Activity with an "ALL BILLS PAID!" banner, and you have Apartment 143 [Emergo]. That's not to suggest the film is, er, low-rent.

The Apparition

I ain’t ’fraid of no ghosts.


Horror

Rod Lott
Call me crazy, but 3,400 square feet seems like an awfully massive home for a strip-mall veterinarian's assistant and a Geek Squad-esque installer of home-theater systems. Then again, the place does have its drawbacks: doors open on their own, furniture moves mysteriously, mold appears, and then things start to die within its well-mortgaged walls — a Costco cactus here, the neighbors’ dog there.

The Flaming Lips — Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn


Rock

Louis Fowler
The Flaming Lips’ latest cover album, Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn, is a song-by-song remake of King Crimson’s 1969 classic, In the Court of the Crimson King. Naturally, it’s only available on hard-to-get, limited-edition colored vinyl.

The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia

Boo! Hiss.


Horror

Rod Lott
Let’s forgive the ridiculousness of the state-confused title that is The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, in order to focus on the film itself.

Said film means well, yet is terrible.
