Pregnancy is scary! At least that's the message we get from many, many horror films, from 'Rosemary's Baby' to 'The Unborn.'
But that's not exactly the message in the 'The Life Zone,' which just might be the first pro-life horror movie. Three pregnant young women who were about to have abortions wake up to find they've been abducted and will be held captive until their babies are born.
If this is a pro-life film, why is the doctor who tells the girls that they're giving birth whether they like it or not so very creepy? Or, as one girl tells her, "You're crazy!"
"Academy Award–nominee Robert Loggia" stars, with lines like "You have all committed a terrible sin." See the trailer after the jump.
The film comes from Kenneth Del Vecchio, whose other credits include, (according to his IMDB bio) 'iMurders,' 'Kinky Killers' and 'Alone in the Dark 2.' And then there's 'O.B.A.M. Nude.' We'll just let the synopsis speak for itself:
At Occidental College in 1981, a loner snorts cocaine and smokes marijuana, secretly hoping to one day become someone important. His dream -- and much more -- comes true when Satan appears, promising the world. There is one caveat, though, as a deal with the Devil requires consideration. In this case, not just the delivery of the young man's soul, but millions more ... With an agreement procured, Satan and his new protégé plot, plan and scheme a long term agenda that ultimately ends with the United States presidency, transforming the Earth's greatest democracy into a communist fiefdom, ruled by a ruthless dictator.Do you think the subject is fair game for a horror film, or is it just in bad taste?
