Swingin' Cinema—Gorilla Tango Theatre, downtown Albuquerque's hub for all things comic and improvisational, will be hosting a local film festival on Saturday, Nov. 19. Organizers are currently searching for films in any genre, any length. Films must, however, be submitted in one of the following formats: DVD, VHS, SVCD or VCD. Films for the festival will be chosen based on a juried selection. There is a $5 non-refundable submission fee per film. The submission deadline is Thursday, Nov. 10. Don't have a film? Hurry up and make one! There will be cash prizes for the best films as determined by Gorilla Tango's distinguished panel of judges. The cash prize amounts will be based on the number of films entered. So, the more films entered, the greater the potential cash prizes.

“Don’t look now, Zorro, but your swash, she is unbuckled.”

Film Review

The Legend of Zorro

Belated sequel is no Raiders of the Lost Ark, but it knows how to buckle a swash or two

This somewhat belated follow-up to 1998's fun, frivolous The Mask of Zorro finds much of the same cast and crew (stars Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, director Martin Campbell) reunited for more old-fashioned derring-do in the wild, wild West.

Tis the Season for Scary Cinema

A ghostly glimpse at some hot DVD releases for Halloween

Here are a few recent DVD releases, which may have escaped your attention. These films run the gamut from old-school studio chillers to modern-day J-horror.

Idiot Box

Spooks on Screen

Halloween around the dial

Halloween this year happens to fall on a Monday, the scariest day of the week for schoolkids and office workers. Given that the holiday arrives on a weekday, odds are pretty good that you'll have completed all the partying and pumpkin-carving you can handle over the course of the preceding weekend.

Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 27

“Everybody Hates Chris” (KASY-50 7 p.m.) And Chris, apparently, hates Halloween. Especially when he's forced to chaperone his little brother and sister.

Friday 28

“I Shouldn't Be Alive!” (Discovery 7 p.m.) Well, not with that attitude, you shouldn't. Discovery's newest series documents people who have survived horrifying experiences, such as--in tonight's premiere--a shark attack.

“The Secret Life of Vampires” (A&E 7 p.m.) This historical documentary explores more than 100 years of the vampire's impact on pop culture.
