Poughkeepsie on film

With fake newscasts!

Visit http://www.poughkeepsietapes.com/ for more "information" about the horror movie with the horrible title and tag line:

"The Terror is Real."

It is not.

The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. It was originally going to open in February, but the opening was moved to a more proper time...

... around Christmas.

But what's really horrific about this "torture porn" movie -- rated "R" for Radistic Riolence and Rorture, Rincluding Rerror and Raphic Rescriptions -- is the fact that it has its own MySpace page.

(Attention ladies: "The Poughkeepsie Tapes" is a single male, 33, from Los Angeles.)

So pay "him" a visit and remind the gullible visitors that this thing was not based on a true story.

Or you can sell them a bridge.

And, hey, Poughkeepsie! Get a DVD player, would you?
