Parents protest new video release
Local parents are protesting the release of a new selection at county video stores. Members of the Revenges Are Terribly Silly (RATS) Society say that the latest release by Smith-Hammer Films Revenge of the Killer Zombies-Part 3 is not fit for public viewing.
“We’re not protesting the movie’s theme. We’re protesting the mistakes in the background of the movie,” says RATS president Dan Igan. “The errors in this movie are simply unacceptable.”
In a press release, the Society named more than one hundred errors in the film. “The Maymore dishwasher in the background of scene 86 is shown opening from the side when everyone knows that it opens from the bottom. And the ‘intensity setting’ on the dishwasher is set on 11 when everyone knows that ‘intensity’ on that specific dishwasher can only go to 10,” says the release. Other specific problems noted in the press release were the misnamed rock formation in Wyoming (the movie called it Spud Peak instead of Devil’s Tower) and a tornado that spun counterclockwise despite occurring in the Southern Hemisphere (where everyone knows the tornados spin clockwise).
