Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer

Unpleasant on many levels


Horror

Rod Lott
The title of “Cyrus: Mind of a Serial Killer” may bring to, er, mind one or two other titles: 1986 über-grim sound-alike “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,” or last year’s mumblecore comedy “Cyrus,” starring Jonah Hill.

Bio-Dead

There’s something out there. Yawn.


Horror

Rod Lott
With a pulsing score that recalls the best of John Carpenter, the blue-tinted “Bio-Dead” begins promisingly enough, as a handful of guys in hazmat suits approaches yet another seemingly abandoned building to comb for survivors, post-chem disaster.

Bad Dreams / Visiting Hours

Mental hospitals, regular hospitals — is no place safe?


Horror

Rod Lott
Earlier this summer, I read a book about the history of slasher movies, and kept a list as I went along of movies I've somehow managed not to see. As if by sheer coincidence, Shout! Factory plops two of them together in one "Killer Double Feature": 1988's "Bad Dreams" and 1982's "Visiting Hours," each on their own disc.

Killer Party

I'm dying to RSVP again.


Horror

Rod Lott
Immediately, I understood why 1986's "Killer Party" enjoys such a cult following: The unconventional slasher opens with a stereotypical flaming priest quoting "The Wizard of Oz" as he presides over a funeral. It's all a goof — part of a movie-within-a-movie-within-a-movie joke.

Do I hear a pub crawl?

Because what better, more appropriate way is there to support Norman Music Festival?

Five downtown Norman bars have teamed up to host a pub crawl benefit for Norman Music Festival Friday night. And you’re invited!

All it costs to hop from bar to bar before winding up at a show by one of Norman’s loudest, heaviest rock bands, Rainbows Are Free (pictured), is $15 before Friday ($20 the day of). The crawl starts at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 11.

Participating bars are Abner’s Ale House, Bill and Dee’s, Bison Witches, The Garage and The Blue Bonnet Bar, which also will host the show. Patrons may also redeem their tickets at the Blue Bonnet for a pub crawl finisher T-shirt, once it’s validated by all five bars.

It being Halloween, costumes are strongly encouraged. For those dressing up, there’ll be contests and prizes awarded. Proceeds go to support NMF, which is of course, a free music festival. So go drink a few beers and help keep it that way!

This year's Grand Marshall: THE SPYFM.COM


Halloween Parade

Gazette staff
Past grand marshals of Gazette’s Halloween Parade have included some real characters — like a couple of vampires and a Flaming Lip — but for the first time, that honor goes not to a person, but an intangible thing.
