It’s an excellent story that I think requires some empathy from the reader to fully appreciate. Lily Percy rated it it was amazing Aug 08, It was a blast working with Dunst. That is until eight years of development–including a research and promotion outlay equal to the operating costs of a small nation–went up in smoke as the extensively hyped and highly anticipated Spasmotica premiered to colossal failure.
