Drag Me to Hell
The Dolls bring lascivious levity to the underworld
By Christie Chisholm
The Dolls know how to inject just the right amount of sex into a night out.

Frank Melcori stages an absurdist assassination
By Sam Adams
Two British hit men sit in a dingy basement. Their only connection to the outside world is via a dumbwaiter, apparently rigged to an upstairs café.
