Al Sharpton disses the upcoming Black Devil Doll (which incidentally will be premiering at Fear Fest 2) by saying, “Pity … it’s a shame individuals in our society have regressed to such standards of racial lambasting in favor of lowest-common-denominator ‘entertainment’ for the mass public.”
Despite there being a war going on, politicians seem more interested in whether or not super-size slugger, Roger “I lick my lips when I am lying” Clemens, juiced while playing baseball.
Rambo not being No. 1 at the box office in favor of Meet the Spartans.
And now this —
New.com.au reports that Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (review here) was screened for at least two underage sex offenders among other delinquents at a juvenile detention center in Australia by their recreation officer.
Oh, the damage that can be done to frail young psyches by watching a tongue-in-cheek slasher flick! Before you know it, they will be getting tattoos, smoking, masturbating, and listening to *gasp* rock music!
Former Children’s Court magistrate Barbara Holborow said the officer ought to be sacked immediately. “Where do they get these people from? When you put a child into a detention centre it’s not just to punish them, it’s to rehabilitate and educate them,” Ms. Holborow said. “How can you rehabilitate kids if you’re going to show them filth like that. Whoever the person is, they should be sacked.”
When reached for comment, Wrong Turn 2 director Joe Lynch had this to say:
“Although it seems that the unfortunate individuals involved have an impeccable taste in horror films, this was never intended to be shown in ANY correctional facility to emotionally fragile minds. Please be warned, “Wrong Turn 2” could influence one to engage in uncontrollable fits of cannibalism or mutant diddling, and is not meant for the easily impressionable … or to be served with vegemite.”
To which I would like to add … HUZZAH!
