Tall, Dark, and Dead – 94 – Meat Market 2
Title: Meat Market 2
Director: Brian Clement
Leads: Bettina May, Alison Therriault, Stephan Eng
Favorite quote: “But he – it – has survived. Because it can still consume to keep itself going.”
Thoughts: This one has to be notes, sorry.
Most of the makeup gives an idea of what Fulci zombies would look like if slightly more animated.
Zombies are evolving – physically, at least. (Strength, dexterity.)
Zombie in “xxx vegan straight-edge xxx” shirt – bahahaha.
Once isolated in survivor site (Reconstructive Commerce Association?), only white women elevated to status of “breeding stock” – WTF? Why the racial angle? Rest of movie has absolutely nothing to do with issues of race.
Anti-zombie pep rally, corporate team-building – but elevation of the idea of the zombie as a soulless, dedicated consumer talked up? Lots of economic model talk, “create as much as you consume” – very weird, but very interesting. Using zombies to talk about consumerism, again?
Scientists fuse dead/alive flesh, we’ve seen this before…
Oh, the horrible racist living people are the real cannibalistic monsters. I see.
…I thought El Diablo Azul was dead!
…oh. He’s an angel.
