Dead Souls

You don’t want ‘Soul’ custody.


Horror

Rod Lott
With Dead Souls, we can prove something about the Chiller cable network's original features that Remains could not: Source material is not to blame for their pervasive generic nature — it's the economy, stupid.

The Monk

I vow that it’s a gem.


Thriller

Rod Lott
For several years, I’ve intended to read Matthew G. Lewis' 1796 novel, The Monk. I even bought a snazzy trade-paperback edition with an introduction from Stephen King. Never got around to cracking it open.

The Naked Jungle

Red and black antennas waving, they all do it the same.


Drama

Rod Lott
Charlton Heston comes second-billed to eventual Sound of Music baroness Eleanor Parker in 1954's The Naked Jungle. Nowhere in the credits is there room to list the true stars — or at least the reason for watching: millions and millions of mean-ass ants.

Femme Fatales: The Complete Second Season

Refractory period over; ready to go again?


Television series

Rod Lott
Certainly the favorite TV show of pubescent boys nationwide whose parents have no idea what airs on Cinemax after they go to bed, Femme Fatales is an anthology series that puts women on top, both figuratively and literally. The better sex engages in better sex, all while pulling the wool — surgically enhanced and otherwise — over the eyes of stupid men.

Spectacular story

Oklahoma author Tim Tharp approves of The Spectacular Now’s buzzed-about film adaptation.


Drama

Aimee Williams
Tim Tharp doesn’t need vampires, magical powers or a dystopian backdrop to make his novels relevant. The award-winning, Oklahoma-based author’s realism distinguishes him from the bulk of young-adult storytellers.
