Happy Halloween! Times four!


Horror

Rod Lott
Anyone who says the 1978 original is the only good movie in the Halloween franchise is kidding himself. While none of the succeeding chapters may match the power, there's plenty of fun to be had beyond that one night he came home.

Your Sister's Sister

Three’s a crowd in one fine film.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In an age of cinema jammed with reboots, remakes and raunch, it's a welcome revelation to come across the heartfelt Your Sister's Sister on Blu-ray and DVD, in which low-budget indie meets comedy of manners.

Safety Not Guaranteed

But a ‘Safe’ bet.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If only Oklahoma Gazette classified ads were this intriguing: "Wanted: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before. Safety not guaranteed."

The Campaign

Enough laughs to make your chad hang.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In any other year but an election year, I’d like to think The Campaign would have been a bigger hit. It's certainly funny; it's also certainly too close to the truth: American politics is a game of money.

The Phynx

Phar-out, phunny, phreaky stuff.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If movies could be drug-tested, The Phynx would be in big trouble. The 1970 comedy is not just an obscurity, but an oddity, like a hallucinogenic brew mixed by Peter Max and Hanna-Barbera. Newly rescued from Nowheresville by Warner Archive, the film is a spy spoof on the goofball level of Get Smart — in spirit, that is, not creatively.

’Til death do us part.


Horror

Rod Lott
After four previous films (when you factor in the American Quarantine versions), is there life left in Spain's zombie found-footage franchise? [REC] 3: Genesis responds with a festive "¡Si!"

The Amazing Spider-Man

Spins a web, familiar size.


Action

Rod Lott
I still don’t know why Hollywood felt that Spider-Man, all of 10 years young, needed to be remade — I suspect it has to do with selling toys. Enough of calling The Amazing Spider-Man a “reboot,” too; this is a remake through and through.

Nitro Circus: The Movie

Wow! Ouch!


Documentary

Rod Lott
Granted only a limited theatrical release this summer, Nitro Circus: The Movie is like Jackass with more athleticism, more engineering know-how, more maturity, more corporate sponsors, and much less testicular trauma.
