13 Eerie

Zombies declare war on science.


Rod Lott
When viewers insert the DVD of 13 Eerie into their player, and the menu loads, they’ll be greeted by a crude but cute animation of the cover’s creature doing a little jig. I don’t think it’s meant to be amusing as I took it, but it is a sign that the movie isn’t your average, ordinary zombie film.

OKG7 chilly dogs

OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
The dog days of summer have waned and baseball season now is behind us, but that doesn’t mean hot dogs get dropped from fall and winter menus. Whether you like it plain-Jane with yellow mustard or the footlong variety (snicker, snicker) adorned with everything from chili and cheese to sauerkraut and jalapeños, when your dogs are barking, there are chilly weather selections aplenty for wieners all over town.

The Immigrant

Director James Gray offers stellar melodrama of a foreigner’s journey in America.


Phil Bacharach
In the cacophony of high-concept movies and TV, there’s something to be said for the spare beauty of old-fashioned melodrama. The Immigrant, now playing exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, covers familiar territory: A wide-eyed ingénue in the big city falls prey to the clutches of a bad man. Yet that familiarity is part of what makes these stories so powerful. They speak to things — temptation, suffering and redemption — deeply rooted in our collective being.
