Grimes says the concept for Tetanus burned in his brain for the past three years. It finally opens from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday and runs through November 11 at the Fahrenheit Gallery in the West Bottoms (1717 West Ninth Street, 816-304-5477). Be sure to keep an eye out but not literally for the limited-edition print sets; attendees are encouraged to wear masks. Ray T. Barker
Dead Men Walking
This land is your land ...
There's this thing about the dead this time of year. They keep turning up everywhere. Like on Monday, when the director's cut of George A. Romero's Land of the Dead comes to town. Released in June, the fourth installment in the gore master's Dead series doesn't reach the chilling peaks of his 1968 classic, Night of the Living Dead but then, few movies do. Land of the Dead appears more mainstream on the surface, but it contains signature Romero elements: scathing social commentary, plenty of violence, and excellent makeup effects (plus an exclusive Romero interview and a truly evil Dennis Hopper). Catch the area's only screening at 8 p.m. at Kansas City Stadium 18 Cinemas (3200 Ameristar Drive). Barker
