(Newser) – Michael Moore promises to tear chunks out of the people behind the Wall Street meltdown in his new movie, USA Today reports. The documentary filmmaker, who calls the financial crisis "the biggest robbery in the history of this country," is targeting the corporations and politicians responsible. He hopes the movie, due out in October, will send audiences out to hunt for "pitchforks and torches" afterward.

"The movie is not going to be an economics lesson; it's going to be more like a vampire movie," Moore quipped. "Instead of the main characters feasting on the blood of their victims, they feast on the money. And they never seem to get enough of it."
