You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Chernobyl Kinsman

    I don’t get how this would work as a TV show, at all. Unless it was like Tales From the Crypt or something.

  • Screamz

    I’ll certainly give this a shot. Love the movies, the only real exception being Scream 3. My only reservation is that it’s MTV and I tried watching Teen Wolf. Hopefully the writers they hired will do a much better job, though I do hope there’s no Sydney. I mean, really, how many times can one girl be attacked by so many killers…?
