Weinstein's pick up Dario Argento's "The Mother of Tears"

The Weinstein Co. picked up Dario Argento's third installment from the 'Three Mothers" trilogy, "The Mother of Tears", at the Toronto International Film Festival. This is fresh of the Weinstein's picking up George A Romero's "Diary of the Dead" just a few days ago. "The Mother of Tears" sold for 'mid-six figures', whereas "Diary of the Dead" went for quite a bit more, if I remember correctly. Either way, they're acquiring some good horror flicks.

I haven't seen it, but apparently it's loaded with sex, violence, plenty of gore and there's a really freaky monkey in it. The reviews are really good, so my guess is it's worth checking out... if not for the monkey, for the gore.

There's still a whole bunch of horror movies at the Toronto International Film Festival that haven't been picked up, but those two were the big ones.
