Hello to all those faithfully reading and hopefully enjoying this effort to make even the worst horror movie more watcha... aw, screw that - I'm not that good. If a movie makes you cringe because yet another batch of unlikable teens that are pushing 30 are inching toward their deaths, having a party no one does anywhere ever, a paranormal movie is boring you to tears with unending pans of empty rooms, or thanks to CGI technology when people finally bite it, their blood squirts everywhere except on the victim, the ground, the people next to them... you're in good company and this is the right place for you.

WE NOW INTERRUPT THE TEPID DRAMA OF MISS MURDER'S TALE OF WOE TO TELL YOU THAT NOT ONLY CAN YOU GET HORRIBLE HEALTH CARE IN AMERICA, YOU CAN GO TO JAIL FOR WATCHING/SHOWING CERTAIN MOVIES TOO...





Well, She Should Have Watched It First... Oh, Wait - She Did?


(Associated Press): COLUMBUS, Ohio — A former substitute teacher convicted of showing a movie including graphic sex and violence to a high school class was sentenced on Wednesday to 90 days in jail.

Sheila Kearns, who was convicted in January of four felony counts, apologized in court, saying she hadn't watched the movie before showing it to her Spanish classes at Columbus' East High School in April 2013. 


The movie, "The ABCs of Death," consists of 26 chapters, each depicting some form of grisly death and representing a letter of the alphabet, such as "E is for Exterminate," ''O is for Orgasm" and "T is for Toilet."


Kearns, who showed the movie during five periods of the class, was convicted of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles. The Columbus Dispatch http://bit.ly/1M7CFUc reported the judge placed her on probation for three years but made the jail time a condition of probation.


Don't worry about the dog - this
segment had a sweet (if violent) ending...
Kearns, 58, contended she was unaware of the movie's content. Her attorney said she never would have knowingly showed it. But a student testified Kearns watched the 129-minute movie. The student said the movie was "disturbing" and said students in the class went "crazy" while watching it. An assistant principal who saw the DVD movie playing in the classroom confiscated it.

Prosecutors said the movie's title should have tipped off Kearns that she should check it out before showing it to her students, who ranged in age from 14 to 18. Miss Murder says why should that tip her off when parents will take children five and up to PG-13 movies? But....


Jurors watched the movie, which rates 4.7 out of 10 stars on the IMDb website, before convicting Kearns. After the conviction, the jury foreman said it wasn't proved at trial that Kearns was aware of the movie's content the first time she showed it but she would have known by the second, third, fourth and fifth showings.

Good thing she didn't show the sequel...
