Drew Barrymore has a hunger for Humans in a new Santa Clarita Diet Promo



The Santa Clarita Diet, for people with good taste… and people who taste good.

"Without the watchful eye of sponsors or the FCC, we here at Netflix have finally decided to abandon that last vestige of taste and now present this: Drew Barrymore. Also, somewhat but not nearly as disturbing: Cannibalism."

I really liked Drew Berrymoore. I think she just picks/is cast in poor projects.

Looked like a big bowl of sushi.

I guess politically we've devolved to eating our own, only right that art should begin reflecting that reality. The whole zombie craze, some argued, was representative of the ironies of democracy after all.

To eat and be eaten by Drew Barrymore was my teenage fantasy.

When I first saw the title, I misread it as Santa Carla:


Honestly, is it worth living in California if you have to deal with earthquakes, forest fires, mud slides, zombies, vampires, etc.? I mean, that must be some frikkin' amazing weather out there.

Wooooow! You think she's fat? You sound like my dad. My wife is 5 times larger than skinny stick Drew.

The Zombie genre was a metaphor on capitalism, not Democracy. Learn your memes.

Heh, I was thinking the same thing. Though, to be fair, Night of the Living Dead zombies, I think, were more of an extreme backdrop to show how regular people can behave in an impossible situation, with an (arguable) dash of social commentary regarding racism with the ending. While I don't think I've seen the "zombies = democracy" argument, they have been used for everything from commentary on commercialism (the mall zombies) to a silly takes on forbidden love (i.e, Warm Bodies, i.e., I-can't-believe-someone-made-this-movie).

All that said...not really excited about seeing Drew Barrymore eating people, for pretty much every definition of the word "eating".

It's like Dexter, except the clean up at the end goes into the dishwasher instead of getting dumped out into a trench off the Miami coast.

Doesn't sound so bad and it's not like Drew Barrymore hit every branch down while falling out of an ugly tree. She's pretty darn good lookin in a normal sort of way.

That red dress is fooling you. Look again, shes more or less fat. Unless your wife weighs 300lbs she is not 5 times larger than her.

Agreed, I think the first movie had both less and more social commentary. The choice of a black actor gave the movie an almost unintentional social element, but really I think it is like you said -- the main theme is just that people can be shit to each other even in a stressful situation.

Dawn of the Dead the zombies were totally a stand-in for the rise of late 70's commercialism and really kind of a huge preview of what the 80's would become.

I think this looks like a cute little series, that second promo with the swans had me laughing.

I've seen a very convincing talk by a published author in the zombie genre that talks about this aspect. The capitalism interpretation is a common one, but he argues it's entirely wrong and that this is why the genre has grown stale. The correct interpretation is political infighting, ala democracy.

I actually found him! Davi Barker.

Quote:
Matheson was making a point about majoritarianism. In his story vampires are no longer solitary monsters, or small broods. They are the majority, and the protagonist Robert Neville is the minority. Even the name “I Am Legend” meant that Neville was a legend among the monsters, who were building the new world from the corpse of the old, not a legend among other survivors. In short, Matheson democratized the vampire and gave us the zombie...

Zombies are unique among monsters because they are a majority, enacting one of modern cinema’s most enduring themes: the triumph of the individual over the collective...

The old vampire personified natural disease like plague, but zombies are usually the result of a man-made infection. They personify the fear that governments are not only devising the biological weapons that will destroy us, but also that they are incompetent enough to release them accidentally. Further, the military and police in these movies almost always fail to protect people from the outbreak, and are usually cast as villains, further playing on a latent skepticism of government. But there are other parallels.


Fundamentally, democracy is a means by which the majority live at the expense of the minority, by force if necessary, just as a zombie horde “lives” at the expense of the survivors. Zombies perfectly obey the majoritarian ethic. The old adage that democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding on dinner is literally realized in these stories. We know this is a strong parallel because every election cycle we see political cartoons portraying grassroots supporters as zombies. Search the internet and you will find supporters of every campaign photoshopped to look like the undead. Intuitively we know that every democratic movement seeks to impose its will on others by force, and we fear being ruled by the mob, especially the stupid masses.
Reading cannibalism as a symbol for collectivist violence, the rest of the metaphor becomes clear.


The zombie outbreak is always worse in cities, where government is strongest, and the best movie survivors are always rural prepper types, the gunnies and stockpilers who avoided reliance on government. Not to mention, the character who holds out for government rescue is often among the first to die… or turn...

She is larger than I have ever seen her in this promo, so.
