'Penis Trauma' Clears Ratings Board


This just in from a horror panel over the weekend at SXSW: Against all odds, the MPAA ratings board has upheld the stomach-turning integrity of Ti West, director of the upcoming The Innkeepers: "In figuring out how he was going to get a prosthetic member discharging pus past MPAA, he recalled shooting three different scenes only to see the most graphic version slip right by. 'I want to hate them, but I don't,' said [West]." That does it: I never want to hear the "automatic-R for smoking" argument ever again. [THR]
