How insane is the new anti-choice horror movie The Life Zone? Movieline attempts to count the ways.
Written and produced by former New Jersey judge/current State Senate hopeful (and, according to Zone’s trailer, “Best-selling Author)” Kenneth Del Vecchio, the film premiered over the weekend at the Hoboken International Film Festival (which Del Vecchio, uh, founded) and is making the rounds as a trailblazing example of pro-life cinema — and not necessarily in a good way.
Here’s the trailer:
Since there’s zero chance I’ll be seeing this, I’ll reveal this MAJOR SPOILER:
It’s revealed all along the women had been in Purgatory, after having died on the operating table of abortion clinics. But because Staci attempted to miscarry even after a second chance at motherhood, and because she never accepted the error of her ways until she experienced the physical joy of giving birth, of seeing her children for the first time, she will be doomed to eternity in Hell.
Loggia is Satan and he informs Staci she will spend all eternity in a cycle of pregnancy and childbirth and Dr. Wise will forever be her doctor, as the movie’s final twist plays out: Wise too will spend eternity in Hell. She was so weak she committed suicide when her marriage collapsed and must suffer the fate of forever bringing life into the world, endlessly having to appreciate what she did not value on Earth.
