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.

Expendable real estate


CFN

Gazette staff
Chuck Norris has been awfully quiet since last September, when he warned true American citizens — and Democrats — that the re-election of President Barack Obama would bring about “1,000 years of darkness.”

Wish Lists


News

Gazette staff
What do local notables want this holiday season? Well, Oklahoma Gazette asked ’em. And they told us. Imagine that!  We passed along these lists to Mr. Claus to do with as he sees fit. But for now, we’re reading the list — some of it twice, because it’s that good. We talked to everyone from adult film stars to leading conservative politicians to get insight — and a laugh — from our leading locals. Happy holidays! — Jennifer Chancellor
