The date is a very, very strange coincidence, but still, just a coincidence in my opinion.
Is it so shocking that on the same date as one shooting, there would be a review for a movie containing the name of a place a different shooting took place months later?
For me, it isn't even much of a coincidence. As others have mentioned, Sandy Hook is not a unique name, it will crop up all over the place if you look. I'd imagine google is full of Sandy Hook references that predate the shooting, just waiting for someone to make a phony connection.
Coincidence is exactly what this is.edit on 20-12-2012 by humphreysjim because: (no reason given)

What is coincidence?
co·in·ci·dence [koh-in-si-duh ns]
1. a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time apparently by mere chance
What is chance?
1 a : something that happens unpredictably without discernible human intention or observable cause
Chance is our inability to predict with certainty.
Coincidence is our inability to discern the causal relationship between two events that appear correlated.
In other words two events are considered a coincidence only when we can't find the relationship between them.
Coincidence and chance are words we give to explain our ignorance ... they are not really explanations at at ...

People have completely jumped the shark on this issue.
What we have is a tragedy where 26 people were shot dead by a mentally unstable person.
Why are people instant on trying to turn it into a farce?

I would agree ...
I just simply wanted to explain that chance and coincidence are merely words that convey ignorance.
There may indeed be a connection that is wilder than anyone's imagination, even if highly improbable.

2. humor of the type displayed in such works.

wtf is going on???
Our consciousness makes our world. Get enough souls to watch a slaying ritual, in a circle called a movie theater, their minds make it real, and someone long distance catches the spirit, and the spirit takes them over. The demonic spirit. Soda and popcorn, a mass to go with the fake vision to drive your psyche. Movies as spells, that's why they are dressed up with format and formula.

I can't get past the fact that on their cover they misspelled massacre as "massacAre."
Why would that be intended?

Probably just can't spell or spell check for that matter.
What I couldn't sleep about last night, what was bothering me was, could I subconsciously have written something, like known something? You've all seen the film, Unbreakable, yes? Put yourself in my place. Would you feel the same? It's very strange and more so for me, because I KNOW that I did that without any alterior motive.

By the way, did Timothy Green Beckley directed any other horror movies?
Is this the only horror movie he ever directed?
If yes, why he decided to produce an horror movie?
