Directed from a script by...

A leg gun?? Brilliant!!

And in further bizarre footnotes on the Virginia Tech fallout...

"...In screenplays Cho wrote for a class last fall, characters throw hammers and attack with chainsaws, said a student who attended Virginia Tech last fall. In another, Cho concocted a tale of students who fantasize about stalking and killing a teacher who sexually molested them.

'When we read Cho’s plays, it was like something out of a nightmare,' former classmate Ian MacFarlane, now an AOL employee, wrote in a blog posted on an AOL website.

'The plays had really twisted, macabre violence that used weapons I wouldn’t have even thought of.'

Yep. And that's why you'll never make it in this town, Mr. MacFarlane.

Seriously, isn't this what critics lavish praise on films like Saw, Hostel and Grindhouse for? (Hey, one man's disturbing, telltale signs of mental illness is just another man's edgy, million-dollar intellectual property, right?)
