Fright Night 2: New Blood

Fangs for nothing.


Horror

Rod Lott
I'm not surprised Fright Night 2: New Blood was made expressly for home video. What does surprise me is that it is not a sequel at all. It's more or less a remake of 2011's Fright Night remake, but with entirely different actors to give it the unmistakable whiff of fan fiction.

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.

Elf it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Around the holidays, it’s recommended you stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup. At least that’s what everyone’s favorite oversized elf, Buddy, thinks. See Elf on the big screen 7 p.m. Monday at Harkins Theatres, 150 E. Reno Ave. Admission is free, but registration is required. Visit downtownindecember.com.

Hearty party

Local bartenders know how to make cocktails you can sink your teeth into as the savory drink trend gives “comfort food” a whole new meaning.


Food and Drink Features

As chill factors dip below zero, drinkers traditionally gravitate toward the heavier drinks, like mulled wine, cider and nog.

Mullally it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

She will return to OKC with her “edgy, comedic rock show” Nancy & Beth 8 p.m. Thursday at the Plaza Theatre, 1725 NW 16th St. Tickets are $25. Call 524-9312 or visit lyrictheatreokc.com.

Smith Westerns — Soft Will


Indie

Zach Hale
Most bands don’t make their “mature” album until they’re, you know, mature. Chicago trio Smith Westerns is like the indie-rock equivalent of Robin Williams in Jack: just a few years removed from high school, yet appearing to age more rapidly than the majority of their contemporaries.
