Calling All Zombies—Necroville, a locally produced, low-budget horror comedy shooting here in Albuquerque, is attempting to film the largest zombie siege ever lensed in the state of New Mexico. Hence, all zombie wannabes are asked to attend the Zombie Siege Day, taking place Saturday, April 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Anyone interested is asked to lumber their way to the SolArts Theater (712 Central SW) that morning. Pizza and soda will be provided for lunch. The theater will afford adequate shelter, water and bathrooms. C.R. Productions, makers of Necroville, recommend bringing a fold-up chair, a book, a Gameboy and other luxuries to pass the day. Zombie makeup is water soluble, but extras are advised to wear their best beat up/throw away clothing. If you have any questions, you can direct them to director Billy Garberina at firstname.lastname@example.org

Not so fast, says the eye-opening new documentary Paper Clips.

Madcap martial arts epic blends Bruce Lee with Bugs Bunny
Stephen Chow, star of some 50-odd films, is a certified superstar throughout Asia. In fact, he'd probably be a bigger name here in America if Miramax hadn't completely bobbled the stateside release of his worldwide smash Shaolin Soccer. Thankfully, he's got another shot at adding America to his international fanbase with the release of his newest sensation, Kung Fu Hustle.
“House, M.D.” on FOX
In the past few weeks, some casual television observers may have been shocked to find FOX's more-hyped-than-happenin' medical drama “House” suddenly knocking at the door of the weekly Top 10. In a world where new shows get booted after a week or two of weak ratings, “House” is the latest example of a network actually giving audiences time to ease into a series.
The Week in Sloth
“Rip the Runway” (BET 8 p.m.) “America's Top Model” winner Eva Pigford and self-proclaimed leader of the “gentleman's movement” Fonzworth Bentley host this musical fashion show featuring top urban designers like Sean John, Baby Phat and Def Jam University.
“Pope Fiction” (EWTN 9 p.m.) I gotta give mad props to the wiseguys at Eternal Word TV for the clever title on this short documentary refuting “misconceptions” about the Pope. (For example, the Pope does not have X-ray vision or the power of flight.)
