SILENT BUT DEADLY—Don't go through the Christmas season without watching 1984's Silent Night, Deadly Night. It's a feel-good flick about an ax-wielding Santa who must kill every naughty-doer with his bag of homicidal tendencies. Ho-ho-hatchet! The Grindhouse Film Fest's annual tradition is 100 percent 35mm film and 100 percent gore-filled great! CF

CALMLY, NOW—The vaulted pop architecture that Stay Calm constructs is spacious, bright, and full of breathing room, but with a firm bedrock of sturdy rhythms and adventurous noise-excavating. The Portland three-piece's exciting sounds are built from the ground up, with sonic exploration being the foundation and pop sparkle in the details. NL
