Death and Cremation

Either beats taxes.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Two outcasts are better than one in Death and Cremation, a better-than-average indie thriller, thanks mainly to mood. Even the smallest of budgets can afford that, yet few think to invest in it.

Girls Gone Dead

T&A that earns a D.


Comedy

Rod Lott
I'm torn between whether the horror comedy Girls Gone Dead is misogynist or merely plays pretend. That it’s written by a woman boggles the mind.

Chained

Won’t quite your attention hostage.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'll be a lifelong Boxing Helena cheerleader, so it was with tempered enthusiasm that I greeted Jennifer Lynch's Chained.

The Factory

The ending is a crime.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Can a bad ending ruin an otherwise OK movie? In the case of The Factory, I believe it can.

Blood Runs Cold

Give it the ‘Cold’ shoulder.


Horror

Rod Lott
Blood indeed runs cold in Blood Runs Cold — just not yours, assuming you’re at least somewhat familiar with the rhythms and beats of the “ohmygodhesgotanaxwereallgoingtodie!” subgenre.

The Jeffrey Dahmer Files

“Go look in the refrigerator.”


Documentary

Rod Lott
Understandably, a documentary about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer that weaves fictional elements with fact sounds like a wretched, evil, exploitative thing. Instead, it's a small marvel of microcinema — and another argument for the storytelling power of the nonfiction format.

Made for TV

Gangster Eliot Ness hits the small screen by route of an Oklahoma author.


Features

Malena Lott
If the name Eliot Ness doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the lawman played by Kevin Costner in The Untouchables who made a name for himself bringing down gangster Al Capone.

Nurse 3D

Rx for boredom.


Horror

Rod Lott
Abigail Russell isn't your average nurse, because she's also a serial killer. Abigail Russell isn't your average serial killer, either, because she only wants to kill men who cheat. But come to think of it, that hardly narrows the field.
