Finally, someone found a justification for film school. What seems to be an attempt at Valentine’s Day marketing in Petaluma, CA, reads surprisingly like an entreaty to homicide. ?Redrum? occupies a special place in our culture thanks to Stanley Kubrick’s take on ?The Shining? and the crooked index finger of a child actor Danny Lloyd. Had the sign letterer known the provenance of the term, vis-?-vis ?History of American Cinema 101,? I bet they would have found ?Come play with us forever? more apt for eternal love.
