As if Warner Archive hasn’t re-released enough murder mysteries on MOD DVD lately, here’s another helping, pairing 1949’s The House Across the Street and Homicide on one disc overflowing with film noir. I gladly made room for it.
I couldn’t tell from the postcard we got in the office, but the locally shot film Bad to the Jones is a zombie comedy. The trailer below makes that completely clear.
If the undead makes your attention come alive, boy, are you in luck! Marlon Ladd’s Bad to the Jones screens at 8 p.m. tomorrow, May 3, at Cinemark Tinseltown, 6001 Martin Luther King, with arrivals at 7 p.m. Should be fun, but there’s one hitch: Tickets must be ordered at badtothejones.com, as you can’t get them at the theater. Click away for a tale of two brothers and a city under siege! —Rod Lott
