Assasination Nation Gives Revolution a Whole New Face

When I heard the lead character in a voice over state, “…this is the story of how my town Salem lost its m$%f**&n mind,” I knew I was in trouble. As twisted and perverse as this film was for me, it had relevant elements around real issues like the internet, teen suicide, hacking and a…
