Holy crap! Kick-ass American Psycho director Mary Harron signs on for the film version of Rachel Klein’s twisted vamp novel The Moth Diaries! Ginger Snaps screenwriter Karen Walton’s name has been attached to the project. A female director helming a female screenwriter’s adaptation of a female author’s horror novel? SIGN. MARLA. UP.

Last week’s ep was much improved, no? Many of the plot ambiguities were made satisfactorily clear, Eliza kinda sold it, and there was an awesome “Tabula Rasa” Buffy shout-out!
