It's marketing.

Whatever the number 666 means as presented in the book of Revelation in the Bible I don't think anyone is sure, but I don't think it will be flagrantly tatooed on the Antichrist for ...

Hollywood can be quite brave when it wants to be, check Brokeback Mountain or Syriana two very brave pictures.

Hmm, I agree it needed trimming, but keeping it under 2 hours would force the cutting of some good character development.

I know a lot of people complained about the fact that there was a lot of ch ...

Well, people see what they want to see, often to the point of missing what the film was really about.

It doesn't even have to be Horror Porn. The Terminal was about a man stuck in a terminal and t ...
