Chiller: The Complete Television Series

Yikes from the UK.


Television series

Rod Lott
While a bit too stiff-upper-lip for my tastes, Synapse Films’ release of the British TV series Chiller is welcomed nonetheless. Any release of a horror anthology is, especially one this little-seen.

The Possession

This is why you shouldn’t go antiquing.


Horror

Rod Lott
Certainly I’m not the only one who confused The Possession and The Apparition when they played theaters late this summer. After all, the two horror films not only had soundalike titles and shared similar premises, but opened within seven days of one another.

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.

Oklahoma’s mean Jesus


Commentary

Robin Meyers
