What sort of sick, twisted mind does it take to come up with the idea of doing this to one of the great New Romantic singles?

I'll tell you what sort: the mind of a bloody genius!

'Isn't it irresponsible filmmaking to teach young people in the audience that they can survive throwing electrical objects into the water the way Jay does?'

Someone has been thinking about It Follows just a tad too much:

And for a horror film, there are surprisingly few deaths. Apart from the mystery girl's death that opens the film (we never find out how she related to the rest of the characters), the other main on-screen death is Greg, killed in his bedroom. Given that the creature walks toward the victim until it reaches them, how very convenient that it so seldom appears in the middle of the night while the victim is asleep! Where's the "don't fall asleep" warning à la invasion of the Body Snatchers and A Nightmare on Elm Street?

Marina Hyde on the Football Association's reaction to the FIFA corruption scandal:

You know when World Cups started being corrupt? 1970. And anything up to and including 1962. Between those dates, there was a brief and ineffably beautiful interregnum in the chicanery, which thereafter was never allowed to happen again. Why? Well, there was a global sense, really, that the sainted custodians of both tournament and trophy during that time were simply too exquisitely mannered, too morally faultless, too humble, too generous-spirited, too brilliant at football ever to be permitted to shame the rest of the world in this manner again.

Did you enjoy that story? If so, you may be Greg Dyke, or have suffered a recent head trauma. Either way, please seek help immediately. […]
