The Terror Experiment

Fail.


Horror

Rod Lott
Not like TV's The Walking Dead is perfect, but its mainstream success on a weekly in-season basis has spoiled viewers, thus ruining many zombie movies. It has raised a bar that most only could hope to come close to clearing. But even without the show, efforts like The Terror Experiment likely would find no love.

Donald Glover: Weirdo

The ‘Community’ star graduates to head of his comedic class.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Donald Glover is more than just an actor on NBC's sitcom Community, and Weirdo, his stand-up special shot in New York City, is more than just rape and poop jokes, although many of both exist.

JD McPherson — Signs & Signifiers

All 'Signs' point to excellence.


Rock

Matt Carney
If anybody in Oklahoma is most likely to capitalize on wide-audience distribution right now, it must be Broken Arrow’s R&B-flavored rocker JD McPherson, whose debut album, Signs & Signifiers, was re-released last week by Rounder Records.

Dark Tide

Just when you thought it was safe to watch a Halle Berry movie.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm glad that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez found love on the set, because that makes Dark Tide not a total loss. Otherwise, this big-budget, theater-skipping adventure is perhaps the most toothless shark movie ever made, and remember, I've sat through Dinoshark and Sharktopus.

B real

A decade together, work with high-profile artists, a widespread fan base — for one local R&B group, it’s all Meant2B.


Music

Ryan Querbach
A local R&B group’s members all hail from different states, but they just so happened to come together as students of the University of Central Oklahoma; that’s why they call themselves Meant2B.

The Red House

Come and knock on our door. We've been waiting for you.


Thriller

Rod Lott
When Meg (Allene Roberts, Union Station), the adopted daughter of wooden-legged farmer Morgan (the legendary Edward G. Robinson), convinces him to hire her platonic pal, Nath (Lon McAllister, The Story of Seabiscuit), at the staggering rate of 50 cents an hour, things look like a win-win for all parties.
