No Horror allowed in China

China has added horror videos to its list of banned video and audio content as it intensified things not allowed in the country ahead of the Beijing Olympics. Quates from reuters:

Offending content included "wronged spirits and violent ghosts, monsters, demons, and other inhuman portrayals, strange and supernatural storytelling for the sole purpose of seeking terror and horror," the administration said.

The new guidelines aim to "control and cleanse the negative effect these items have on society, and to prevent horror, violent, cruel publications from entering the market through official channels and to protect adolescents' psychological health."

If the "banned" this keeps growing at this rate there will be nothing to do for those going to the Beijing Olympics. Maybe they can run dubbed versions of Giligan's Island..oh wait Ginger is a little to scandalous.
