‘The Life Zone,’ the creepy anti-choice horror movie

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.

    So, we should assume that the BIG G channeled the senatorial hopeful personally and gave this story unto DelVecchio so that he would save the unborn. Good grief! Ego? UUUUge!

    You know what? I’ll stick with Weiner. His facebook comments sounded more like Buddy Hackett’s on the Carson Show and less depraved as the media has been despairing us to be.

  2. How can you resist the fine writing, the lighting, the sets, such dynamic gestures and facial expressions?
    Other than that, I’ve got 3 words: “The Magdalene Sisters.”

    When does the fetus magically transform into a human life? The movie asks this question. Unfortunately, really, no one can answer this question. is it one second before the baby is born? One week before? A month before? Maybe it’s at the point of viability, which many argue. That’s a flawed argument, though, given that in 1973, when roe v. wade was handed down, it was at about 6 months when a bay could live outside the womb. today, in 2011, it is much later…The point is this: those who have abortions are always taking, at minimum, a RISK, that they are killing a human life. Because no one can ever define when the fetus “magically transforms into a human life.” This destroys every pro-choice argument except those who don’t care that they may be killing human lives. The Life Zone filmmakers make this point clearer in the movie, but you get it. If you don’t, it’s sad.

      So seeing as you’re such a selfless celebrator of life can we use the food that would have fed you and your family to feed all these unwanted kids destined to lives of neglect? You know, seeing as you insist on valuing an unborn lifeform with no developed conciousness over the people already alive and struggling for resources.

      The definition of when a fetus is human life is sufficiently clear cut. There is a point of viability, and the point of birth- while one could argue for viability being the ‘correct’ point (and if we continue to discover viability regressing further then so be it) birth seems a better option given the comparative lack of suffering or ‘feeling’ that the fetus endures until that point.

      Your suggestion that because there is a potential risk of killing a human life via abortion (a risk many people would not agree with) is flawed even within its own parameters. I take a risk everyday to kill a human life when I drive a car, when I shoot a rifle, when I do a plethora of things that human beings take for granted. I might not think that I wish to kill a human life but the risk remains.

      The Life Zone points out nothing beyond the fact that they are much more concerned with punishing women than any concept of death or suffering, as I have previously explained here: http://freeze43.wordpress.com/2011/06/18/the-life-zone-shows-what-is-wrong-with-republicans-their-message-and-their-treatment-of-other-people/

      They don’t magically turn into a human being, if you can’t tell the difference between human and a baby then your a moron.

    I think silence and lack of sales will serve to ruin this film greater than huge media criticism.

    The message is atrocious, the storyline ludicrous, somehow perpetually giving birth and nurturing a child constantly it considered a hell-worthy punishment which distorts the (disgustingly uncaring) message that abortion is murder and children are a good thing. I would assume a “God is love” ideology is lost here.

    In a way I feel sorry for republicans. Republican commentators are saying next to nothing about the film, and the whole circumstances are really vilifying the entire party.
