I hate zombies. Not in the sense that I have a specific dislike for the idea of zombies or a zombie apocalypse, I just hate the fandom, mostly. Everybody’s always talking about how fucking cool it would be to live in a zombie apocalypse, when really, it’d be the most godawful experience you could possibly imagine. Yeah, have fun running for your life every waking minute of every fucking day. Tangentially annoying is how every aspect of pop culture gets “zombified” at one point or another. I’m literally going to lose all hope in humanity the moment I see some fucker wearing a Dr. Who shirt with like a zombie phone booth or whatever that dumb space ship they ride around inside is actually called.
I was pretty apprehensive about this short film called Cargo that came out recently, mostly because it has so much to do with the source of my irrational anger issues toward a pop culture trope that really has no bearing on my actual life or wellbeing in any significant way. Gotta say, though, the concept is super cool.
Watch for yourself, and let us know how you feel about the zombies! Awesome? Corny? Cool in context?- CrimeZone20xx
