Forget the kids, I get nightmares

I know, I know, posts that start off “I’m a liberal guy BUT…” can usually be dismissed BUT…

there are some ridiculously graphic billboards for this upcoming movie Captivity (not yet online but here’s a more restrained poster). They freak me out. Can you imagine what they do to a six year old?

It’s well documented that horror films serve as excellent reflections of the era’s zeitgeist. What do you think this increase in brutality snuff-type flicks can be tied to? Has anyone written the Guantanamo Bay = Saw III article yet?

Update 3/19: Apparently i’m not the only one who noticed this — folks have complained and the billboards are coming down.
