The Howling

Team Jacob?!? Try Team Dante.


Horror

Rod Lott
One of at least four werewolf films to be released in 1981, The Howling remains a distant second to John Landis' An American Werewolf in London, but only because Joe Dante wasn't able to enjoy the competition's deep coffers. Sacrilege alert: I find Dante's to be the better movie.

Under the Bed

Warning: May cure insomnia.


Horror

Rod Lott
Because monsters hiding beneath beds is a near-universal fear among children, it seems ripe for a horror movie to explore. Under the Bed does, yet provokes only yawns. That’s because the concept is best-suited for a youthful audience, à la an episode of Goosebumps, rather than an R-rated treatment.

Behind the Candelabra

It tickles the ivories.


Drama

Rod Lott

Michael Douglas deserved the Emmy he won earlier this week for Behind the Candelabra. For one thing, while watching him play Liberace, I forgot I was watching him play Liberace.

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.

Men, get dapper this season


Features

Brittany Pickering
When shopping for party attire, it’s easy to get distracted by all the bright, sparkly items we women get to wear and forget about the men in our lives.
