No Room for Zombies at the Lodge

A new Anti-Zombie movie in or about to start production entitled ‘Blood Lodge’ is holding a benefit of sorts for the film on January 8th in New Jersey:

MULLICA TOWNSHIP – Graffiti Playhouse Productions, a South Jersey-based film company, is hosting a benefit party 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 8 for its new zombie horror movie.

The film, “Blood Lodge” will feature Vincent Pastore of “The Sopranos” and B-movie actress Jasmin St. Claire.

“A zombie attack happens in the fictional town of Ten Acres while a group of friends travel for a ski weekend,” said Orosz, who is an actor in the film. “The group unites with other guests staying at the Ten Acres Lodge and tries to stay alive by fighting the zombies.

“This is not your typical zombie movie,” he said. “‘Blood Lodge’ is like ‘Zombie Land’ meets ‘Dazed and Confused’ mixed with the 1970s grindhouse movies.”

Not your ‘typical’ zombie movie, eh? Let’s see: extremely negative depiction of a ‘horde’ of the Differently Animated attacks a remote but fortifiable structure and an assortment of colorful strangers have to either band together for survival or be eaten alive?

What about that is novel, the fact that it’s at a ski lodge?

Oh. I get it. This is a Living Supremacist and classist thing, isn’t it? Zombies aren’t *good enough* to be admitted to your fancy ski lodge. Their money, while green, isn’t accepted there. Go along home, Zombies. No skiing for you.

What a bunch of selfish, elitist aristocrats. Why can’t Zombies go skiing, precisely? Is there a reason beyond the rich Living types not wanting ‘their kind’ to share the slopes with warm-blooded and therefore deserving individuals?

I guess it’s not unprecedented. Wealthy and powerful enclaves often resist integration with any given minority group, whether it be swimming pools, water fountains, golf courses or, apparently, ski lodges. It’s always the same sad, bigoted story.

The ZRC won’t rest until this dual class and life-status discrimination comes to an end. We call on all of your winter resorts to open their doors and their hearts, not to mention their cash registers, to the Differently Animated. We must make this tired spectacle a thing of the past, indeed, make the premise of ‘Blood Lodge’ an outdated and shameful piece of American history!

Who knows? The Zombie that gets their dignity back might one day be you.

After, say, a heart attack and subsequent chemical spill. It’s been known to happen.
