Comedy

Rod Lott
In the span of a decade, post-World War II, the comedy team known as The Bowery Boys (née The East Side Kids, née The Dead End Kids) made 48 movies. Up until now, I’d seen exactly zero of them.

Television series

Rod Lott
There's no way to discuss the seventh and penultimate season of Showtime's hit Dexter without acknowledging how the previous year ended. Therefore, if you haven't finished the sixth season, stop reading now. You've got work to do.

James William Guercio has one of the finest track records in cinema history, because each and every film he directed not only has been great, but became a cult classic. It is titled 1973's Electra Glide in Blue.

The Secret of Crickley Hall

Trick or treat? Totally a treat.


Television series

Rod Lott

What is The Secret of Crickley Hall? Well, if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret. The less juvenile answer: It's a superb BBC limited series that'll plunk you in the proper Halloween spirit.

Disturb it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some horror tales are forgotten (Sharknado, anyone?), while others endure. Considering Euripides died some 2400 years ago, his disturbing tragedy Medea qualifies as the latter. The OKC Theatre Company will resurrect the ancient production at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $10. Call 297-2584 or visit okctheatrecompany.org.

Thursday-Saturday, ongoing
