Just two months ago, I posted a two truths and a lie in which the three choices were a Soul Train movie, a movie inspired by Wheaties Cereal, and a horror movie based on MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16.”

The lie, of course, was the Wheaties movie, but 39 percent of you picked the MTV horror-movie version of “My Sweet 16” as the lie. I can assure you it is not. In fact, just a couple of months after the announcement, there’s already an airdate for My Super Pyscho Sweet 16. According to The Futon Critic, the two-hour film will premiere on MTV on October 23rd, the same day that Saw VI is released. Decisions, decisions.

Chris Zylka, Julianna Guill, Lauren McKnight and Matt Angel all star in the project, about a killer who crashes Madison Penrose’s (Guill) birthday bash at the Rollerdome, the site of several grisly murders a decade earlier. Jacob Gentry directed the film from a script by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas.

Sounds absolutely dreadful. But then again, I’m strangely curious. Could it possibly be as bad as “My Super Sweet 16”? If it’s done right (and it won’t be), it could actually be enjoyable to see some entitled little brat and her douchedad and trollop mom fall prey to a birthday killer. I hope he murders them with birthday cake and then runs them over with their new BMW SUV.
