LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I magine yourself in the heyday of drive-in movies. Director Roger Corman is mining Edgar Allen Poe's material for horror flicks. Jack Hill jumps into the ring working on features with Corman and Francis Ford Coppola, before branching out on his own. Roll down your window, attach the speaker and sit back and enjoy the movie with "The Father of 'Spider Baby'."

Film enthusiasts will find several new film and video related titles on the shelf this fall. Peruse the list in "Movie Booking." Also behind the movie scenes, The Southwest Institute of Film and Television is looking to create a place where you can toil in the movie making craft without going to Hollywood. Find out how it's going in "DIY Hollywood." Take a stroll through Hollywood filmmaking with director Melvin Van Peebles in "Master Shot."

Reviews include "Knock Off," "Your Friends and Neighbors," and "The Eel" with more in our mini-reviews section.
