Coming attractions

Nearly wiped out by a recent twister, the city’s iconic Winchester Drive In Theatre promises a swift reboot.


Features

Louis Fowler
When May’s bout of wicked weather rampaged across the metro, images of the devastation of Moore overshadowed — and rightly so — the comparatively minor destruction in Oklahoma City.

Detention of the Dead / The Demented

They put the “Zzzzz” in “zombies.”


Horror

Rod Lott
Ten years ago, we didn’t have enough zombie movies. Now, we have too many of them, which might not be a problem if most weren’t so bland and unimaginative. Detention of the Dead tries — not too hard, mind you — to distinguish itself by being a comedy. Technically, I suppose it is; in execution, it fails.

X-Ray / Schizoid

Prognosis: 178 minutes of frightful fun.


Horror

Rod Lott
Continuing its reissues of finely aged cheese from the Cannon Films vault, Shout! Factory presents a welcome double feature of silly-ass slashers in 1982’s X-Ray and 1980’s Schizoid.

Street Trash

Now every day can be garbage day.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Street Trash is a semipolitical horror comedy that pulls out all the stops in an all-out effort seemingly to offend as many viewers as possible. Personally, I think that’s a good thing.

Get your kicks.


Action

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment, the DVD format’s current reigning master of the budget box set, has unleashed two separate martial-arts collections in Flying Fists of Kung Fu and Kickin’ It Shaolin Style. Containing 12 films apiece from the late 1970s and early ’80s, they account for 34 hours and 50 minutes of your potential viewing time in all.
