The Apparition

I ain’t ’fraid of no ghosts.


Horror

Rod Lott
Call me crazy, but 3,400 square feet seems like an awfully massive home for a strip-mall veterinarian's assistant and a Geek Squad-esque installer of home-theater systems. Then again, the place does have its drawbacks: doors open on their own, furniture moves mysteriously, mold appears, and then things start to die within its well-mortgaged walls — a Costco cactus here, the neighbors’ dog there.

Kill for Me

Roomies, sheesh!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rent’s a bitch. And that is why, six months after her best friend went missing, Amanda (Katie Cassidy, TV’s Arrow) finally gives in to getting another roommate, Hailey (Tracy Spiridakos, TV’s Revolution). The two college students turn out to have something in common, however: abusive men.

The Burning

Third-degree terror.


Horror

Rod Lott
It speaks to the strength of The Burning’s reputation among cult-film fans that what’s most memorable about the 1981 slasher is not that it was written by the Weinstein brothers, nor that it represents early appearances of the likes of Jason Alexander, Holly Hunter and Fisher Stevens. It’s that its Cropsy is just a damned good villain.

National Lampoon's Vacation: 30th Anniversary Edition

A comedy classic turns 30; moose outside shoulda told ya.


Comedy

Rod Lott
I found out long ago it's a long way down the Holiday Road — three decades, to be precise. I forever hold an extra-special affinity for 1983's National Lampoon's Vacation, not just because it's a modern comedy classic, but because it was the first R-rated movie I got to see in theaters; I was 12. (Thank you, Janice Haunschild, for convincing my mom she had nothing to worry about.)

What, me bothered?


CFN

Gazette staff
Just days before winning the Henry P. Iba Citizen Athlete Award — an honor reserved for those who “excel in their sport and who show by their actions a desire to help others” — Adrian Peterson announced he is “not with” same-sex marriage.

Evil Dead

Major-studio horror doesn’t get much better — or bloodier!


Horror

Rod Lott
From the prologue of Evil Dead, it’s evident this is not your everyday, note-for-note, beat-for-beat horror remake. In fact, it joins that select group of remakes that stand on their own while remaining respectful of their source, i.e. The Fly, The Blob, The Thing (John Carpenter's, mind you) and Dawn of the Dead.

The Kentucky Fried Movie

“I'm not wearing any pants. Film at 11.”


Comedy

Rod Lott
John Landis and the team of David Zucker/Jim Abrahams/Jerry Zucker may have made better movies directly afterward (National Lampoon's Animal House and Airplane!, respectively), but that's not to deny 1977's The Kentucky Fried Movie its rightful place in the all-time comedy canon. A career-launcher for all four, the scrappy Sketch Movie That Could holds up splendidly — in laughs, not fashions — in its Blu-ray debut.

Hatchet III

Ax and ye shall receive.


Horror

Rod Lott
Hatchet III posits that a man whose face has been turned to raw meat can get right back up and walk around as if nothing happened. Then he gets chainsawed into even halves, yet even that fails to faze him.

Up and coming

The Rise promises a blend of historic and new with an array of retail and dining along NW 23rd Street and Walker Avenue.


News

Tim Farley
Self-preservation was high on Johnathan Russell’s list of reasons for redeveloping an area at NW 23rd Street and Walker Avenue that once was known more for its drug deals and prostitution than trendy restaurants and retail outlets.
