(Newser) – Worst idea of the day (year?) so far: A horror-porn director plans to make a film about kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard and her relationship with accused abductor—and rapist—Phillip Garrido. A spokesperson for Dugard called the idea “exploitive, hurtful, and breathtakingly unkind” after filmmaker Shane Ryan told a Sacramento TV station he plans to start work on Abducted Girl, An American Sex Slave next month.

Ryan, whom the Huffington Post calls a “pornographer” and the AP refers to as a “director of low-budget horror movies,” has previously made Amateur Porn Star Killer and Romance Road Killers, among others.
