CHINA EMBRACES SEX AND VIOLENCE

Despite some regrettable incidents like the Cultural Revolution, China has normally been a pillar of moral rectitude. They don't allow the production of movies that promote "supernatural elements" like horror flicks, and they don't let them be released either. Same with softcore porn and, presumably, hardcore porn as well. Now, however, the times are changing and they've allowed the production and release of SUFFOCATION , the first officially-sanctioned PRC horror movie, and the release of HK horror flicks like SLIM TIL DEATH (supermodels starved to death), INNER SENSES, and the organ donor fear fest, KOMA.

Seeing that there have been no ill effects reported among the general population, industry insiders suspect that China will move closer to allowing more sex and violence and implementing a consumer-guidance rating system. Soon, people in China will get to enjoy HOUSE OF WAX just like the rest of us. It almost brings a tear to my eye, because where HOUSE OF WAX goes, can true democracy be far behind?
