We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Battlestar Galactica, Criminal Ways, Orphan, Stan Helsing, X-Cross

New DVD Releases Tuesday, Oct. 27


Battlestar Galactica: The Plan
The plan to destroy humanity, told from the Cylons' point of viewÑmostly, Six (Tricia Helfer) and Cavil (Dean Stockwell) in new footage, with some flashback scenes from the series. Unanswered: Why "All Along the Watchtower"?
Criminal Ways
A gang of thieves poses as a children's singing group to gain access to a mansion birthday party, only to wind up with a hit song. Based on the true story of the Jonas Brothers; co-starring Isla Fisher as the selling point on the box.

A childless couple (coincidentally, named Jon and Kate) adopt a creepy orphan girl, only to learn that she's really just a creepy ... almost gave it away! Could it be, A. a demon, B. a Jonas Brother, or C. a Cylon? None of the above.

Stan Helsing
Horror faves Pinhead, Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Chucky take on Stan Helsing (Leslie Nielsen), a video-store clerk who can defeat them with his movie knowledge ... Leslie Nielsen?

A pair of Japanese schoolgirls vacation at a remote hot spring and happen upon loony locals and a Satanic cult; action, gore, wackiness and too little nudity ensue. If you see only one Japanese vacation film this year, this'll do.
