Or, with the fact that no one else on the cast list is required to do a graphic sex scene, which leaves me... perplexed...)

A casting call for a bunch of adolescent and teenage kids and middle-aged men, only? That also happens to lack any and all information on what the show is actually about? Gross. I get the feeling the men auditioning are going to get ambushed by Chris Hansen when they walk into the audition room.

Boobs Make Everything Scarier

INDIE HORROR

Casting twist-ending independent horror shorts and a Gothic-type feature. Seeking: females, 18 to 30-ish, attractive, exotic, and busty types to play lead heroines, victims, vampresses, gypsies, nurses, maids; males, 30-plus, character types for intense scientists, Catholic priests. Non-union. No experience necessary (models welcome). Transportation and DVD copy. Pay for leads. Send pix & resumes to Shriekcinema...

Why bother with the twist-endings when, based on the casting notice, I'd say these projects already sound completely unpredictable and unorthodox for the horror genre. Older professional men, young top-heavy working girls... I'm frightened already.
