As a fan of the horror genre, some of my favorite film moments are the implied scares. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is an oft cited example of such devices. The occurrences of implied gore are much more frequent and powerful than the on-screen nasties, and they are much worse. When left with some latitude, the imagination often creates far worse scenarios than when all of the details are clearly depicted.

But in this case, no, what I said was more disgusting than what you imagine and shouldn’t be repeated again.

In completely other news, if you are reading this on Sunday, September 11th, and you are in Berlin, check out today’s issue of the BZ newspaper for a special two-page comic which I contributed to their issue for the 10th anniversary of 9/11. I will be posting a digital copy of the comic, though I’ve been asked to delay until later this evening by the publisher.
