probably saved myself a lot of pain

Late last night I was browsing the choices to stream o'er Netflix and I came across Scourge. I would haved immediately filed it under "Nahhhh" or "Maybe when I've watched everything else on Earth except for all the Troma movies", but then I read the description:

When a local church burns down, an ancient evil creature is awakened and soon wreaks havoc on the small town of Harborford, WA. The population slowly shrinks as the so-called "scourge" travels from body to body.

...and I got SO EXCITED. Before I could click "play now", however, I realized that "The population slowly shrinks..." didn't mean that the townsfolk of Harborford were going to actually get smaller, it meant their numbers were going to decrease. Totally different than what I wanted from the movie. Oh well.

Now, someone needs to make a film wherein a virus actually causes people to shrink, if only to please me. Thank you for your time.
