Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie

Mort! Mort! Mort! Mort!


Documentary

Rod Lott
In 1987, The Morton Downey Jr. Show burst out of nowhere — New Jersey, to be precise — and became a near-instant phenomenon, turning its loud-mouthed, chain-smoking host into the titan of trash TV. Less than two years later, ratings plummeted along with Downey's career.

Kill Your Darlings

Surge, Ginsberg!


Drama

Louis Fowler

Java update

Local start-up Mariposa Coffee is as concerned with the perfect brew as it is with the well-being of the world.


Food and Drink Features

Giancarlo Gonzalez
The first thing that hits you is the aroma of blueberries coming from the coffee cup. It is a scent unexpected. After the drink is finished and a bag of the roasted concoction is purchased for later brewing, one might wonder if it was real or a trick of the mind.

Die, Monster, Die!

Buy, viewer, buy!


Horror

Rod Lott

In Die, Monster, Die!, a decent H.P. Lovecraft adaptation from 1965, the repellent Reinhart (Nick Adams, Frankenstein Conquers the World) visits the secluded mansion of wacky, wheelchair-bound Witley (Boris Karloff, Targets), who has discovered something quite peculiar residing in his basement.
