    Bit to Do

    Cinemark Tinseltown presents 'Young Frankenstein' [Movies]

    Happy Halloween, everybody! I've never been much for it myself. Naturally, I enjoy all the candy, and any excuse to party is fine with me (although I won't consume anything dyed green or orange – that's just gross), but other than that... not much appeal. I don't even like dressing up. It's weird. However: 'tis the season for scary movies, and that

    is something I can get down with. While truly frightening movies can be difficult to come by for the jaded cinephile, I have been known to be creeped out by some of the usual suspects:

    The Exorcism of Emily Rose

    , for instance, is an old favorite, as is

    The Ring


    Paranormal Activity

    made me hesitant to venture to the dark downstairs of my apartment for a night or two. Less well-known options are


    , the original incarnation of

    The Grudge

    , featuring some truly creepy imagery. The bookends of David Lynch's career are both frightening in their own ways –


    is shrouded in an aura of darkness, and

    Inland Empire

    is like watching a nightmare for three hours. I also highly recommend the recent film

    Beyond the Black Rainbow

    – more a psychological thriller than a horror film, I nevertheless found my body gripped in a tension – even a fear – due to the pervasive mood exuded by the thing. It's beautiful.

    But perhaps many of you don't want to be quite so scared. In this case I would highly recommend booking it out to Cinemark Tinseltown for their special screenings of Mel Brooks' classic,

    Young Frankenstein

    . Gene Wilder stars as Frederick Frankenstein, grandson of the original doctor. Ashamed of the infamy surrounding his ancestor, he tries to distance himself from his heritage. However, when he travels to Transylvania to inherit his family's estate, he becomes intrigued in spite of himself... and begins the experiments again.

    Young Frankenstein

    plays today (Wednesday) at 2:00 and 7:00. Tinseltown is located at 4400 Towne Center Drive, in the Springhurst Shopping Center. Further theater information can be found at the Tinseltown website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
