Looking for Halloween haunts? Want something more than the chance to chow down on chocolate? We have 10 events, from tame to terrifying, that will make this Halloween memorable.
‘McCarthys’ inspired by creator’s modern family
After the sitcom “Happy Endings” was, ironically, abruptly canceled, writer Brian Gallivan looked close to home for his next gig: His own family inspired “The McCarthys,” a new CBS comedy about sports-obsessed brood with one gay son. Fiction, he says, is funnier than fact.
Hancock to share life lessons in Naperville
Herbie Hancock, who appears at 7 p.m. Thursday at North Central College’s Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville, doesn’t begin or end his newly published memoir “Possibilities” by recalling any of the many highlights in his 50-plus-year career. Instead, the 74-year-old pianist bookends his life story by recalling a concert with Miles Davis’ quintet nearly 50 years ago in Stockholm, Sweden, when he played what he thought was a wrong chord.
'Nightcrawler' sheds dim light on ratings-driven crime news
In “Nightcrawler,” Jake Gyllenhaal plays a strange and scary video news photographer, finding ways to turn his fidgety tics and baleful glances into reams of telling information. “Nightcrawler” also perfectly captures the mood, texture and adrenaline rush of chasing big city crime news at night. Dan Gilroy gives us a glimpse of this world that's fresh, freaky and frighteningly fascinating.
Devilish drama ‘Horns’ torches any semblance of subtlety
The snippet of pillow talk between canoodling lovers that opens “Horns” would be unremarkable, were it not for the fact that the hot and heavy exchange quickly becomes the last subtle thing about the film, which manages to simultaneously over-tell and underserve the story of Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), a man who sprouts a pair of devil’s horns after he is accused of his girlfriend’s murder.

full story »The ‘Last Madman of Rock ’N’ Roll’ finally restsI am positive the image of Paul Revere (actually, his real name was Paul Revere Dick) that came into the minds of those who knew him, when they learned of his death, was one with a huge smile. It was infectious, warm and evoked a sense of happiness even before the music began to play. I consider myself very fortunate to have worked with him and the other boys of the band in Revolutionary War costumes who took the stage at The Arcada Theatre many times.
