Stitches

A horror comedy that doesn’t clown around.


Comedy

Rod Lott
We’re slipping, America. It look to Ireland to make the best horror comedy in recent memory, Stitches. The subgenre is one of the toughest to pull off — a feat about as rare as finding a four-leaf clover.

Horror

Black Rock

This ‘Rock’ is semisolid.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Strangely, Katie Aselton of TV's extraordinarily funny The League is better at crafting thrillers than comedies. Her directorial debut, 2010's The Freebie, was insufferable mumblecore. Black Rock finds her taking a headlong leap into suspense, and while it's so-so, growth is growth.

News

Tim Farley
Shoddy police work and prosecutorial misconduct resulted in the wrongful conviction of Karl Fontenot for murder, kidnapping and robbery. That’s the contention of the Oklahoma Innocence Project (OIP), an arm of Oklahoma City University School of Law, in a court filing that seeks Fontenot’s release from prison after 28 years behind bars.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, where are your PR people, anyway?

Apparently, they’re getting their wires crossed and leaving Gov. Mary Fallin to look like she’s not keeping up with the times.

At least they’re not murdering his music

Gazette staff
Twilley don’t mind. Tulsa Sound music icon Dwight Twilley and creator of ’80s hits “I’m on Fire” and “Girls,” is getting new exposure with classic guitar-driven pop-rocker “Looking for the Magic,” in the horror flick You’re Next. In fact, it’s the only song credited in the movie.

Ok, this one isn’t funny

Again, our state ranks near last in a report. Surprised? No. Angry? Only at ourselves. The Center for American Progress rated states based on 36 different factors that included economics, leadership and health in its report The State of Women in America. Oklahoma was No. 48th and received a grade of “F,” above Louisiana and Utah.

Killer Holiday / Murder University

Slash equals trash.


Horror

Rod Lott
Think of all the critical evisceration that the Friday the 13th movies endured in their time. Yet they're high art compared to two recent slasher "homages," the low-budget Killer Holiday and the no-budget Murder University.
