  • Doodybutt

    Can not wait to see this!!

  • Hopefully,Scout Taylor Compton’s new film will be an awful lot better than GHOST HOUSE(which may have given the Pouty Scouty fans a lot of openly exposed Scout[both topless nudity,tattoos exposures, and barefoot soles-wise] but it majorly,majorly Sucked).

        Hopefully we can have Schaech Taylor Compton (that’s my nickname for 2 of the greatest legendary horror legends of all time, working together in a dream project) in some kind of Rob Zombie horror movie at some stage.
        It will be legendary and horror will EXPLODE!

    COOL! i love Scout and i love slashers! is it weird that Scout isn’t even listed on IMDB’s listing for the film?

    was Scout added last minute or something or maybe it’s just that IMDB isn’t up to date with their info?

  • Necro
