One thought on “American Terror Comic Launches Short Film Kickstarter”

  1. Yep, the movie was fantastic. And the outftis very very cute as a button, just like Miss Zooey. But don’t forget Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I doubt anyone else within his age group could have pulled it off. (Have you seen BRICK? Do!) Well, ok, maybe Rayn Gosling.
