Filled with absurd dialogue (Your mother ate my dog! / Not all of it.), Dead Alive is gore-meets-farce along the lines of Shaun of the Dead, just with a little more blood splatter. The 1992 flick is from director Peter Jackson (yep, The Lord of the Rings and King Kong Peter Jackson). 11:55 p.m. today and tomorrow. River Oaks Theatre, 2009 West Gray. For information, call 713-866-8881 or visit www.landmarktheatre.com. $9.50.
