Drama

Rod Lott

Curandero: Dawn of the Demon

From dusk till yawn.


Horror

Rod Lott
Eduardo Rodriguez has put three pictures in the can (including the upcoming Fright Night 2) since completing his directorial debut, Curandero: Dawn of the Demon, in 2005. Why, then, has it taken roughly eight years for Curandero to hit DVD? You got me; it’s not as if a lack of quality has stopped any flick before.

Cartel crossroads

Oklahoma City is the only non-border city in the nation with the ‘consuming fire’ of heavy drug movement. Why? Our highways.


News

Ben Felder
An evidence recovery worker with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (OBN) cuts open a kilo of cocaine, exposing the white brick. On the surface of the brick, which was confiscated in a recent bust, is the faint image of a footprint, almost as if an infant’s foot was cast into a molding to be kept in a memory box.
