Stag Night

Lacks ingenuity and suspense


Horror

Rod Lott
In movies, bachelor parties are a recipe for disaster, out of which nothing good comes: “Bachelor Party,” “Stag,” “Very Bad Things.”

Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer

Unpleasant on many levels


Horror

Rod Lott
The title of “Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer” may bring to, er, mind one or two other titles: 1986 über-grim sound-alike “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,” or last year’s mumblecore comedy “Cyrus,” starring Jonah Hill.

Music Video Monday: Pretty things

With exception for a Rob Zombie laundry commercial

The video for Brianna Gaither’s “Find You” is everything I want in a video, local or no: great storytelling concept, mesmerizing cinematography, beautiful visuals, gorgeous song. If this doesn’t win you to Gaither’s team, I don’t know what will.



Approximately a bajillion years ago, the male two-thirds of Seapony lived in Oklahoma. Punks in love, rebelling against authority, all for love!



Chad Valley’s gleeful “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel?)” gets one of the most tender, heartfelt music videos I’ve ever seen.



A thousand watercolor paintings were used to make stop-motion animation. This is a visual feast.



Hometapes is becoming my favorite label, as this studio performance cut from the label’s Collections of Colonies of Bees is a smile-inducing blast of crescendo-ing O-prog.



There’s a Mountain Goats shout-out in what must be one of the most entertaining (and most necessary, and most insulting) public service announcements ever.



Rob Zombie directed a commercial for Woolite? Entitled “Torturer”? What?!?

Check these 'Hot' tips

Memorize these seven facts before ‘Hot as Hell,’ cool?

Before banging your head to the music of Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, Underoath and everybody else playing Sunday’s “Hot as Hell” festival in Tulsa, the organizers would like to share some information. We tore these tips straight from the press release:

1. “RE ENTRY WILL BE ALLOWED WITH TICKET AND WRISTBAND”

2. “MISTING TENTS WILL  BE AVAILABLE”

3. “CROWD WILL BE SPRAYED OFTEN WITH WATER FROM STAGE TO COOL DOWN”

4. “NO BLANKETS, ICE CHESTS, or UMBRELLAS”

5. “STAY HYDRATED”

6. “BRING SUNSCREEN”

7. “WEAR HATS”

Enjoy the show, readers! (Sucks about your umbrella, though, Ms. Poppins!) —Rod Lott

Are you ready to Rocklahoma?

Here’s a list of confirmed acts for this year’s Memorial Day fest.

Having covered Pryor’s Rocklahoma for certain competing publications in the past, I am both highly aware of and terrified by the sort of person who eagerly attends the festival, which is sort of an amalgamation of sweaty, cock-rocking big-billers of the past with the most vulgar alt-rockers of the more recent past and more modern rockers who aren’t quite pretty enough to get on the Warped Tour. 

That said, here’s this year’s lineup, announced at 8 a.m. today. Note that The Darkness (yes, that The Darkness) is included in the May 25-27 bill. Road trip, to northeast Oklahoma, anybody?

• Rob Zombie
• Chickenfoot featuring Joe Satriani, Kenny Aronoff, Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar
• Creed
• Megadeth
• Slash
• Queensrÿche
• Chevelle
• Theory of a Deadman
• Jackyl
• Puddle of Mudd
• Hellyeah
• P.O.D.
• Volbeat
• 10 Years
• Cavo
• Adelitas Way
• Black Stone Cherry
• Pop Evil
• Red
• The Darkness
• Art of Dying

• Aranda
• Redlight King
• James Durbin

Rogue River / The Collapsed

All washed up, all fall down.


Horror

Rod Lott
Two new direct-to-DVD horror thrillers begin with much promise, but fizzle before they’re able to provide any sizzle.
