Today's Features

  • First things first: I know that a vast majority of people viewing this film will have already seen the first three chapters of the mayhem of Jigsaw, perhaps the most inventive villain in cinematic horror. “Saw IV” continues that level of ingenuity even though Jigsaw died in “Saw III.” Hollywood will not let a money-making franchise die through pure logic. There has to be a gimmick. In this movie, we see Jigsaw/John through flashbacks while realizing that someone else is carrying on his work in the present.

  • DEAR ABBY: After reading your response to “Desperate Mom in Miami,” who was being married and wasn’t sure if she should take her 4-year-old son on her honeymoon because she was afraid he’d be traumatized if he was left for 12 days, I have to respond. Of course he will be traumatized if his mother leaves him for that long!

  • “Wait Until Dark” is a taut drama which encourages the audience to expect that heroine Susy Hendrix will take back her home from invading thieves. But Derby Dinner Playhouse’s production fails to create that expectation. All the elements are there, but the directing is so by-the-numbers that we are left out. The blind Susy (Janet Essenpreis) is at the mercy of anyone who invades her home, but if she can get the apartment in darkness then she has leveled the playing field.
