Director Remy Couture faces "moral corruption" charges in a Montreal court for films available on his website RemyFX.com. The filmmaker's trial began October 13 after objections and allegations began arriving that "children [were] being murdered" and other horrors were being perpetrated on screen. Mr. Couture defends his films by saying they are fantasy. He has pled not guilty. "I believe it's a waste of time. A waste of time for me, and for society. It's a waste of money, too. Because I'm not a criminal. I have no record. I'm a special-effects artist. . .I find this a bit of an embarrassment for Quebec, that this time wouldn't be spent on real cases. But they're going ahead," said Mr. Couture.
