I hate scary movies. Why? Because 1. They’re scary and 2. They’re not real.
Why get worked up about a demonic doll or a bunch of doomed, fictional, slutty teenagers when the world's got real problems?
The Environmental Media Association appears to share this opinion. Its spoofy, new, just-in-time-for-Halloween video, Keystone Horror, is a fake film trailer featuring Butterfly Effect star Amy Smart. And it addresses something truly frightful: an oil pipeline in your backyard.
Ridiculous, overly dramatic scary situation, you say? It happened to the mansion-dwelling residents of Mayflower, Arkansas. An Exxon pipeline burst and spilled somewhere between 150,000 and 200,000 gallons of heavy tar sands into their neighborhood, causing long-term damage.
The point: Fossil fuels may be cheap and easy, but when production literally moves into your backyard, you might just see things differently.
