So, what would happen if the MPAA decided to totally lose its generally levelheaded approach and required horror films to go G-rated? You’re looking at it, bitches.
Upon seeing this revised poster for The Strangers (read my review of the actual film), I am somewhat ashamed to admit to a fit of uncontrollable giggles for many reasons, not the least of which was last month’s unrepentant beheading of Elmo. Seriously, if you enjoy getting scared shitless in a theater and haven’t seen The Strangers, you’re really missing out on a terrific film. Hell, I still can’t walk past a window at night without freaking out. Shiver.
Back to the snickers at hand, those creative folks at Worth1000.com gathered up a decent range of altered posters for such “Director’s Mother’s Cut” versions of horror films. Some of the more amusing ones are below, but many more are worth a perusal if you so desire.
