The Spirit

Who was that masked man?


Television series

Rod Lott

ABC's attempt at turning Will Eisner's iconic comic The Spirit into a TV series in 1987 may not have passed the pilot stage, but it sure beats Frank Miller's misbegotten $60 million feature-film treatment of 2008. If you missed the one-hour episode the first time around — and most of us did, which is why the series ended as it soon as it started — Warner Archive comes to the rescue.

Machine Head

Spring break is broken.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Once saddled with the unimaginative-but-accurate title of Spring Break Killer, the indie thriller Machine Head has several things going for it: actual direction, a location with built-in production value, a solid handle on ambience, a terrific soundtrack and it's not based on the intolerable, same-named Bush song, so omnipresent on FM radio in the mid-'90s.
