But there’s no NUDITY!

An Upper St. Clair teacher resigned her position after school officials learned that she and her husband had filmed portions of a horror movie they are producing, “The Killer Inside You,” at the high school.

Mr. Cantrell said some players had carried chain saws into the school, but the saws were not activated. In one scene, he said, an actress named Brenna Lee Roth, who is no longer in the film, is shown entering a classroom and shooting Mrs. Cantrell in the head using a 9 mm handgun loaded with blanks.

“I felt really good about shooting a horror film using no nudity to tell a story,” he said.

There’s a lot of things we can feel really good about.  Giving blood.  Helping an old lady across the street.  Painting churches.  Curing cancer.

Fliming a horror movie wherein students carry chainsaws and an actress pretends to shoot a woman in the head … ALL without nudity?  BRAVO!  Bravo Mr. Cantrell.  You’re the good citizen of the year!

No nudity.  I don’t feel worthy.  I’m going to go save some homeless people or something so I can feel better about myself.

    None of this is surprising given what passes for “art” these days. Its easier to film violence with chain saws and guns than it is to write dialogue and make something like “My Dinner with Andre”, for example.

    The 18 – 24 year old target audience likes gore & boobies.
