You’re doin’ fine, Oklahoma (by doin’ everything that moves)


CFN

Gazette staff
There’s no better way around this: Oklahomans like to boink. Shtup. Roll in the hay. Get it on. Bang a gong. File acts of congress. Adjust the horizontal knob. Kern-hole. Unite for the greater good.

The Tortured

If you think you can take it, try it.


Horror

Rod Lott
Despite being unleashed from Twisted Pictures, those people who brought us all those Saws, The Tortured has sat in the shelf now for about two years, skipping a wide release on its way to DVD. It's easy to see why: It's strong, sick stuff that delights in punching and kicking its audience as its vengeful characters do their prey.

The Girl

Every relationship has a Hitch.


Drama

Rod Lott
Sienna Miller looks every bit the Hitchcock blonde she plays in The Girl, an HBO original film about the relationship between actress Tippi Hedren and the director who gave her not only her big break, but big trouble.

Confessions of an Opium Eater / The Face of Fu Manchu / The Vengeance of Fu Manchu

Confucius say ... WTF?!?


Thriller

Rod Lott
For very different reasons, I'll watch any movie with Vincent Price, Bill Murray, Jackie Chan or Carla Gugino. Falling into the first category is 1962's Confessions of an Opium Eater, a rare Price vehicle rare no more, thanks to a DVD debut from Warner Archive.

Rites of Passage

Wrongs make 'Rites.'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rites of Passage's box art of boring actors’ faces should switch with the illustration adorning the actual disc: a play on the ol' skull and crossbones logo, but using a sock monkey and shotguns. That's what convinced me the film might be worth its 102 minutes. Ultimately, it's not, but its first half makes for an interesting mess.

Supernatural Activity

The laughs have been exorcised.


Comedy

Rod Lott
It's been several years since we've gotten a good parody movie. With the release of Supernatural Activity, it's obvious we may have to wait several more. Found-footage horror is ripe for a ripping, but this one isn't it.

The Sorcerers

Boris Karloff gets hooked on a feeling.


Horror

Rod Lott
Boris Karloff plays one of The Sorcerers in an obscure 1967 thriller from Warner Archive. To be more precise, he’s Dr. Marcus Monserrat, “practitioner of medical hypnosis.” Yet what he and his wife (Catherine Lacey, The Lady Vanishes) really itch to try out is something more sinister.

Your Sister's Sister

Three’s a crowd in one fine film.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In an age of cinema jammed with reboots, remakes and raunch, it's a welcome revelation to come across the heartfelt Your Sister's Sister on Blu-ray and DVD, in which low-budget indie meets comedy of manners.
