The (Food)Stuff of Nightmares

Here’s a little story about a girl who we will call, “Mina.” Now, this story has nothing to do with real life, I can’t tell you that enough, so without further filler at this point, I’m going to start my story.

Not good news for SONY, especially after Target and Walmart pulled UMD movies from their shelves.
