There is something extremely chilling about the Aurora theatre shootings.
"The Dark Knight Rises" may be one of the most anticipated movies of the year; an event that many people would gladly line up for days to see. The midnight screenings must have been booked up within minutes of tickets going on sale, and understandably so; imagine being the first people in your town to see the biggest movie event of the year?
And then, with all that excitement and anticipation, just ten minutes into what was supposed to be 165 minutes of cinematic excellence, a mad man walks in with a mask, drops tear gas on the floor, and starts killing people.
The absurdity of the situation, the sheer senselessness of the act, terrifies me.
