    Listen I am all for making books into vmeios, but Where the Wild Things Are? (WTF!!!) It does not need a remake..like so many vmeios before it I don't have a good feeling about this one..I'd love to see Geek Love made into a movie would be a great freak film, of the likes of Todd Browning's Freaks! do you know it?
