Slaughterama 2018 - Day 24
This is a strange one. First off, both Levar Burton AND Nichelle Nichols are in it.
It's a pretty straightforward 80's zombie/slasher flick, perhaps a little boring if you aren't a fan of campy bullshit.
The strangest thing to me is the setup, with Union soldiers forcing Confederates, including a child, to march across a mine field. Sure, there are some Union Army/supporter atrocities, both sides did some fucked up shit in that civil war. But there are, comparatively, a heck of a lot more cases of confederates and their supporters doing upsetting massacre shit, so I just find the overall setup a weird choice.
Like why was it important to this director and the writers to portray the confederates sympathetically? Like the director is a New Yorker and one writer from California, so like, why'd you do that guys?
