“Every family has its secrets…
One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an ax and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy, and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become zombies?
Maps To TV Shows: Is there a popular show you’d really like to watch but you just don’t have time to wade through years of it all at once? Do you just want to know why that one character keeps turning up on Tumblr? Do the fans all tell you ‘season one is a bit iffy but stick with it, it gets great!’, leaving you with absolutely zero desire ever to watch the boring/silly/just plain weird season one? Then Maps To TV Shows is for you!
In these articles, we’ll outline routes through popular TV shows focusing on particular characters, story arcs or episode types. Are you really into the Klingon episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation? Do you want to

9.23 Do You Believe In Miracles?
Well, that was… unsurprising.
Do You Believe In Miracles? was not a bad season finale. It’s just that it felt like it was missing those jaw-dropping plot twists, shocking cliffhangers, and high tension that’s been the stuff of most of Supernatural finales. In fact, last week’s episode felt like much more of a season finale, while this episode, though it had some truly moving moments, honestly felt like it wasn’t doing anything much more exciting than setting up next season.
That makes sense, though, because according to showrunner Jeremy Carver, season ten is going to be the final act in the three-season story arc he planned when he took over in early season eight, where everything from the past two seasons comes to fruition.
Scot chose ten posters that have meaning for them as designers. “I think there have been better, and more successful, poster designs for sure—I mean, there isn’t one Saul Bass here for example!—but, the only way I could wrangle down to ten was by selecting posters that have had some personal resonance to our work. I’m also a (very amateur) Czech/Polish poster collector, so they feature quite prominently.”
The whole notion of practicing magick is, ostensibly, about connecting to the Earth. It’s not about the supernatural, but celebrating what’s super about the natural. (Ok, that’s kind of bad pun-ny, but lets stick with it.) Malmed makes this allusion by giving us brief glimpses of the denizens of a dark interior space, then our introduction to the exterior desert space is a focusing on the gaping maw of an entrance into a cave. Are the wizard — who, by the way, really gives a fantastic, piercing look as if he can actually see the viewer — and his cohorts performing
The Floating Cinema 2013: Extra-ordinary, London
This cinema will come to you, if you're situated alongside a London canal. It's an appealing initiative, which began last year but returns with a new design, converting an old industrial barge into an eclectic touring show. You can step on to the boat for an intimate show of specially commissioned works and Michael Smith's new film about the River Lea plays later this month. There's also a horror weekend at Granary Square in King's Cross (9 & 10 Aug), and a fancy-dress screening of Tim Burton's Frankenweenie outside 3 Mills Studio, where it was made (23 Aug).

The big story
One word floated over this cinema week: Partridge. After years of coy suggestions, knock-backs and false starts, the Alan Partridge film – codenamed Alpha Papa – finally saw the light of day.
The film-makers bowed to a social media campaign they certainly didn't have any hand in or encouragement and agreed to hold the world premiere in Norwich – for which Partridge donned a particularly fetching powder-blue
safari suit – before sticking Partridge in a helicopter and flying him to London.
Fortunately, our reviewer liked the film. Jurassic Park…

While we’d still love to get our hands on the score by “Jeff Who Lives At Home” and “Cyrus” composer Michael Andrews, we’ll definitely settle for a new track from Beck from the former film. The Duplass’ latest film has helped give Beck fans a pretty stellar new track in “Looking For A Sign” that falls right between Mutations and Sea Change-era Beck, which is certainly a good thing. The mostly acoustic-driven track is also a step away from the work he did as Sex Bob-Omb on the

Kenneth Wilbur Anglemyer was born on this day in 1927 and if you pay him a call at his official site, you'll find a biographical overview he's got to relish. In 2003, Maximilian Le Cain, writing for Senses of Cinema, cut straight to the chase in his opening paragraph: "Offering a description of himself for the program of a 1966 screening, Kenneth Anger stated his 'lifework' as being Magick and his 'magical weapon' the cinematograph. A follower of Aleister Crowley's teachings, Anger is a high level practitioner of occult magic who regards the projection of his films as ceremonies capable of invoking spiritual forces. Cinema, he claims, is an evil force. Its point is to exert control over people and events and his filmmaking is carried out with precisely that intention."
Then: "Whatever one's view of this belief may be,
Also bad for: Guys who were tired of watching Rex Matheson mouth-off and smash things. Somebody tried to take “Torchwood” out of Google, and so Captain Jack returned to earth to keep Gwen safe, which, of course, resulted in Gwen getting wrapped up in the most dangerous thing she’s been wrapped up in since the last time Captain Jack tried to keep her safe. Rhys called Jack “Captain Jack Bollocks,” which was funny. Rex took Torchwood hostage, which was not.

That’s how you know that Anger is the real deal. Wearing a bright red sweater and an ecstatic smile, he looks more like your eccentric uncle at the family Christmas gathering than the master of Satanic cinema like Scorpio Rising, Lucifer Rising, Invocation of My Demon Brother, Ich Will! and more. The man, if anything, is no poseur.
First, I dug up an interesting, older article by longtime underground film writer Fred Camper about the problems naming the avant-garde, experimental, underground, etc. He also comes up with a six-part “test” to determine if a film is underground or not. And, yes, there’s lots of hostility to the term “underground,” but, obviously, it’s what I personally go with. On the other hand, there’s this cute attempt at underground film history. Back in 2002, Gary Morris wrote an interesting appraisal of Andy Warhol’s Chelsea Girls for Bright Lights Film Journal. The Los Angeles Times reports that Charles Manson follower and convicted murderer Bobby Beausoleil,
Jonas Mekas’ Movie Journal: The Rise Of The New American Cinema 1959-1971 is essential reading for anybody interested in underground film. The book contains excerpts from the “Movie Journal” column Mekas wrote for the Village Voice alternative weekly newspaper for a dozen years. Also included in the book are a couple of movie posters and newspaper ads from that era, which I’ve scanned and uploaded to a photo gallery. If you click on each image in this post, it will take you to an embiggened version of it so you can look at them in better detail.
It’s tough for me to pick an absolute favorite poster out of the bunch, but I inserted the most striking above. It’s for a special midnight screening of Jack Smith’s classic Flaming Creatures. I’m guessing from the date on the poster and the year the film was completed,
