"Project X," the film in which kids throw a house party that goes out of control, wasn't very popular among critics, but resonated with some young people who have been throwing their own house parties as a way to copy the events in the movie.
ABC is reporting that a group of kids recently broke into two newly-built vacant homes in Houston, damaging both. One of the houses will cost $100,000 to repair. Thirteen teenagers were arrested and after questioning, several kids cited the movie as their inspiration for the behavior.
Another party in Houston attracted three to six hundred people and quickly turned violent when guns were fired and one person was shot and killed. Police responded to calls from neighbors and arrested several people. While many spoke about "Project X," the gun violence was likely not movie-related.
Meanwhile in Florida, an 18-year-old caused $19,000 of damage to a foreclosed home that he was getting ready for a party. Part of his preparation was a video he shot to show would-be attendees that it's ok to cause destruction to the house by spray-painting "Project X" on the walls. Nearly two thousand people turned up at the party after it was promoted on Facebook, Craigslist and Twitter, but they were kept from the house by the police who had already arrested the teenager.

Please, Please, let there be a sequel! Get the people from the first movie to come back and kill any of the film makers of this movie and any other dumb, silly reality based movie that is so cleared not based in reality.
People, you should know better what happens in the movies, stay in the movies.....Don't try to be Batman, Kick-Ass, Superman or whatever super hero or inspirational movie genre to do the same.....Because in reality at the end of the day you are still a loser by being uncreative and lazy like you always do..... You want to be a great copycat just do what the actors do in porn, just f*ck.....Asses!!!!!
