THE BLUES BROTHERS(Encore on
I SELL THE DEAD(Comcast Movies and Events) A schlocky horror comedy made with fond reverence for the schlocky horror movies that came before it. A pair of grave robbers branch out into selling the undead. It’s not actually a good movie, but you have to admire the nerve of a film set in 1850s Ireland but shot on Staten Island. (Unrated; runs through Nov. 10) TY BURR
COCOON(Encore on Comcast) Florida retirees discover the fountain of youth in a pool rented by aliens who have returned to Earth to rescue their companions from undersea pods. A feel-good movie for sure. (PG-13; runs through Nov. 12)
