Scariest but least adventuresome of George
Romero's Dead trilogy. Now the zombies are out of
Pennsylvanian farmlands and shopping malls,
roaming the post-nuclear countryside. The
humans are holed up in an underground missile
base, where tensions are high between the Rambo-
ish army (Romero's favorite target) and the
slightly warped scientists and their radical ex-
perimentations. Tempers flare as the zombies in-
crease their numbers and...You get the picture. At

Snuful-Upagus. From the Children's television

Vampire movie with brains and scares. Starring

A marvelously imaginative comedy about an
African bushman who mistakes a Coke bottle that
falls from an airplane for a dropped trinket of the
gods and decides to return it. The laughs are pure
slapstick, but ingenious and relentless. A cult
classic and deservedly so. Now approaching its fir-
st year of running. At the Movies at Briarwood,
Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
This sequel to the pulp classic, The Hills Have

William Hurt supplies the emotional power. This
film adaptation is faithful to the dialogue of
Manuel Puig's book, but lacks some of its heart.
Recommended nonetheless. At the Ann Arbor

Tom Hanks and John Candy star in this comedy
about idealism and life in the Peace Corps.
Idealism and life? Well, okay, the commentary is
as subtle as it is farcical, but the movie combines
the best of all worlds into a slapstick adventure.
The approach is as innovative as it is funny. At the

Body Heat (Lawrence Kasdan, 1981)
Kasdan's first solo effort is a great
update of the femme fatale/film noir
genre. Though William Hurt is more
soft than hard-boiled, his crimes of
the heart with Kathleen Turner set a
new standard for passionate silver
screen adventure. Nat. Sci., 7:30p.m.,
9:45 p.m. $2.50.

1966) Cinema 2
Spaghetti-remake of Kurosawa's

"Man With No Name" flicks.
For a Few Dollars More (Sergio
Leone, 1967) C2
Engaging sequel to A Fistful of
Dollars pits Eastwood against arch-
rival Lee Van Cleef. More fun action
from Leone, stone-faced acting from
Eastwood, and a hypnotic musical
score from Enio Morricone. Aud. A.,

tune are realized when an actor in a B-
adventure movie walks off the screen
and replaces her drab world with one

of niave love. MLB 3, 7:30 p.m., 9:30
p.m. $2.50.
What's Up Tiger Lily (Woody Allen,
Senkihi Tanizuchi, 1966) Ann Arbor

This classic "early, funny" film by
Woody Allen forms a great do-it-
yourself double-feature with Purple

other auditorium. A Japanese spy
flick had its soundtrack completely
re-written and dubbed by Allen to
form a completely incongruous and
absurd comedy. MLB 4, 7 p.m., 10:20
