    On Demand movie highlights

    Night of the Living Dead

    (Comcast Free Movies) Dutiful 1990 remake of George Romero’s 1968 flesh-eating zombie classic, with handsome production values, but it just isn’t scary. (R; runs through July 31)

    Hot Spot ½

    (Comcast Free Movies) Dennis Hopper, as director, serves up a lush, lurid neo-noir baked deep in the heart of Texas. Aiming for something between “Double Indemnity” and “Blood Simple,” he winds up with a cross between “Body Heat” and “Blood Simple.” It’s too long, too overdone, too hipped on atmosphere, but Hopper’s exuberance keeps it from being boring. (R; runs through Aug. 8)

    House of Games

    (Comcast Free Movies) David Mamet, full of entertaining tricks in his movie directing debut. In an oddly claustrophobic way all its own, this highly stylized outing tantalizes us with the spectacle of a perverse mating dance between cold, controlling shrink Lindsay Crouse and shrewd con man Joe Mantegna. (R; runs through Sept. 6)
