Nightmares Come to the Roxiticus Valley....or Not

Do you like scary movies? I do, but Rex and I rarely get out to the movies ever since our older daughter was born seven years ago, and now that they're older the kids always interrupt us if we try to watch a scary DVD at home on our Aquos big screen TV. I think the last really scary movie I saw was the Hannibal Lecter sequel to Silence of the Lambs. We watched it on DVD at our beach house about seven years ago and our infant cried out in her sleep (from one of those portable baby car seats they like to sleep in) whenever the creepy music came on.

Based on a cool and creepy movie trailer I found online, I was all set to check out a brand new horror film called Frontier(s) when I found out there's a huge controversy going on that may prevent the movie from ever arriving in the Roxiticus Valley. Frontier(s) was intended to be shown as part of the 2007 After Dark Horrorfest’s 8 Films To Die For, but after the MPAA gave the film a NC-17 rating, the production company decided to leave it uncut and now its "Unrated" run will be limited to a few selected theaters. I've checked the Frontier(s) select theater listings and the closest theatre for Rex and me would be the East Village in New York City, and it's not like we're going to skip an opportunity to have lunch with a client on a day we're in New York to walk down the street to see a horror flick.

So it may be up to my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers to go see Frontier(s) and report back here with your comments.

Oh, and kids (that means you, Matthew from Life in the Corner), parental guidance is suggested before looking at the Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blog in the first place, but you should know that some of the Frontier(s) images as well as the movie trailer may not be suitable for all audiences. My girls aren't allowed within miles of Frontier(s)!
