Okay, the plot is paper-thin, the acting is generally mediocre with occasional flashes of scenery-chewing insanity, and it's non-PC to the point of being embarrassing to modern sensibilities. But you don't go to a blaxploitation-zombie film looking for deep plot, deft characterization or a message; you go for jive-talking, corpse-raising and ass-kicking, and Sugar Hill delivers all of that in abundance.
It shows at 10 p.m. tonight and tomorrow at Starz FilmCenter, in the Tivoli building on the Auraria campus. Tickets are $9.75 general admission, $7 students and seniors and $6 for DFS members; for more info, visit www.denverfilm.org or call 303-595-3456.
