‘The Life Zone’ Trailer Will Hold You Hostage Until You Give Birth

Planned Parenthood. Hostel. Robert Loggia. Red State. IUDs. Family Research Council. Baby Murder. Saw.

What do these things have in common? No one knows, but the trailer for The Life Zone might hold some of the keys. It’s the kind of nutbar crazy that the movie world demands as a sacrifice to the B-movie Gods every so often. An insane idea (a group kidnaps three women who were about to have abortions and holds them against their will until they give birth) propelled by what looks like some schlock writing and a few wooden acting moments.

The brilliance of this thing can’t be overstated. Loggia is doing his best gravelly Jigsaw impression, random actress #1 screams a lot, random actress #2 is trying hard to be Nurse Ratched and failing, and every line is so on the nose we might as well be breathing through them.

Feel free to watch this twenty to thirty times.

I’ve scanned through the credits, and Kirk Cameron’s name is sadly nowhere to be found.

Would you see it?
