  1. French Teacher Suspended for Showing Saw to Sixth-Grade Class

    Saw is probably not a good film to show 11-year-olds, and not just because of the predictable plot and hackneyed direction.

    It's that time of year again when kids are starting summer vacation and teachers just couldn't give a damn. Yesterday, we brought you the story of a fourth-grade teacher from Wisconsin who got falling down hammered while chaperoning a class field trip. Today, Europe is getting in on the action as a sixth-grade teacher in France has been suspended for putting on a viewing of Saw for a roomful of 11-year-olds.

  2. Five Reasons We’re Pumped for a James Wan MacGyver Movie

The God of War movie rights have been floating around for quite some time, but now the writers responsible for four Saw movies, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are set to helm the project.

  4. A Tale of Two Fake Pac-Man Movie Trailers

    Currently making the rounds on the Internet: A wonderful fake trailer for Pac-Man: The Movie, whipped up by Therefore Productions.

    Taking the psychological horror route, it's a mix of Iron Man, Saw, Shutter Island, and Crank 2: High Voltage: A Tony Stark-like pharmaceuticals magnate named "Michael Pacman" is under investigation for the dangerous side effects allegedly caused by his drugs, and he's put in a maze full of hallucinatory ghosts, wherein he must eat his tablets off shelves and drink glowing blue liquid to stay alive -- but suffer increasingly retro side effects.
