Which brings me back to my point (hehehe). Think back to Psycho. Hitchcock manages to portray the greusomeness of the now infamous murder in the shower without pulling out all the stops. He suggests the terribleness of the crime, the vulnerability of the woman. He doesn't show us, in all its gory detail, the knife entering the neck, the full arc of the blood jet.

Call me old-fashioned. I don't really care. I'm more of a martini girl than a kamikaze one. You can have your horror straight-up with no chaser. I'd rather have a nice dinner and some chianti with mine;).
That's my two cents. Take them or leave them. ~Alice
