A Rome priest has been viciously attacked by a man who had just watched the movie adaptation of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code:
Police said Mr Luzi, a former medical student with a history of psychiatric problems, had admitted watching the film version of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code on television the night before the frenzied assault.
At his flat nearby, where he lived with his mother Paola, investigators found material on the Apocalypse and the anti-Christ, and the telephone number of L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper.
There was also a large reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper, which is at the heart of the mystery in The Da Vinci Code, with a note pointing to one of the disciples reading: "This is the hand in which a knife is hidden".
One can't help but feel that it wouldn't have taken much to set off this particular person, so it's probably a little much to say that DVC caused the attack.
