In this time and age where the Politically Correct Bullshit syndrome is full throttle, ruining pretty much any horror movie, is nice to see a film that might show the kids for the cruel and vicious creatures they are (Hey, I was one, so I KNOW what I’m talking about!) and how the now (Mostly) gentle but helpless teachers fight back, and show them who’s the boss in the classrooms…. Let’s just hope the writers didn’t pull any punches at the end…
Oh, yeah, Here is the trailer!
From the Press Release — «From the twisted minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of «Glee»), COOTIES is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills.
