Speaking of being a college prepper, let talk about the other kind of fiction I like in that regard, the zombie movies.
MovieMeditation
The parallels to the time, place and historical significance is obvious whether intended or not and the very impact of it is unmistakably obvious even more so, once Bens dead body ends up being burned on a bonfire together with the fallen zombies and looking at that closing montage completely out of context, a horror zombie movie is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind a living nightmare of terrifying realities, realized inside a little low budget zombie flick.
The Rodent
The small budget also lead to Romero using cheap 35mm black and white film, which in the end, actually makes the film look more memorable.
