If you're anything like me, your Fridays are packed with dead bodies. No? Make some time this week to rectify that situation. The Warner Grand's deadly double of The Giant Gila Monster & The Giant Spider Invasion features radiation, rock & roll, and most importantly, a raffle for a dead body at intermission. Once you've won, high-tail it to the Nuart, where the midnight premiere of controversial coming-of-age-zombie-rape-melodrama Deadgirl will teach you what to do and what not to do with your new friend. If you still have questions, leads Noah Segan, Shiloh Fernandez & writer Trent Haaga will be on hand and happy to help!

Oy, if my mother read that paragraph I'd be the dead one. Better to make amends by taking her to see Mrs. Goldberg, the lovely lady who revolutionized radio & television sitcoms. Director and nice Jewish girl Aviva Kempner appears for Q&A's and shalom's. There's also those nice English boys Powell & Pressburger, whose Himalayan-set Black Narcissus is one of the most gorgeous films ever shot. Or keep criss-crossing the globe - Afghanistan, Paris, Tokyo, Detroit & even Atlantic City! So much excitement you could plotz!

Full list appears below. See you at the movies!
