What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?: Anniversary Edition

She's on Blu-ray, for starters.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Considered the granddaddy — er, make that grandmama — of psycho-biddy flicks, 1962's What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? pits two old-Hollywood legends against one another, with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as the snarling Hudson sisters.

Iron Sky

The empire Reichs back.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
It's 2018, and a U.S. president who looks uncannily like Sarah Palin sends a black man to the moon in a bid for re-election. The American lunar module lands on the dark side of the moon — you know, where the Transformers live — and finds an enormous Nazi outpost that's been there since Hitler's plan for world domination failed.

Dark Shadows

The vampire comedy doesn't suck.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of this summer's biggest bombs, Dark Shadows is only a disappointment if you expect a straight take on the 1960s Gothic soap opera. Then again, the TV series is such the definition of niche-cult that most moviegoers didn't know what to make of it. While I would have preferred to see Tim Burton go horror with the material — more Sleepy Hollow, less Beetlejuice — I still found the quasi-spoof comedy to be a mild delight.

Searching for Sugar Man

One sweet rockumentary.


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
This is a golden age of documentaries, and I don’t mean the propagandistic variety via Michael Moore or 2016: Obama’s America. Given the pervasive timidity and lack of imagination in Hollywood today, film buffs are well advised to take stock of documentaries, where the most gripping stories are being told.

Chained

Won’t quite your attention hostage.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'll be a lifelong Boxing Helena cheerleader, so it was with tempered enthusiasm that I greeted Jennifer Lynch's Chained.

Back from Hell

'Hell' is hell.


Horror

Rod Lott
This being the Halloween season, odds are many a found-footage film will be watched over the next several weeks. How to choose between so many? Allow me to help ever so slightly: Steer clear of Back from Hell.

Hypothermia

Left me cold.


Horror

Rod Lott
There's a lot to be said for horror films that use their low budgets as a positive thing. Hypothermia, however, isn't one of them — a shame, because its producers have excelled elsewhere, with Stake Land, The House of the Devil and especially The Innkeepers.

Flying Swords of Dragon Gate

Proves Kong is still king.


Action

Rod Lott
Although my bank account thinks otherwise, I miss the early-aughts craze of DVDs, in which one count upon pristine prints of one martial-arts film or another hitting store shelves. Many of them starred Jackie Chan or Jet Li.
