Dead Weight (REVIEW)

A group of haggard looking nomads shuffle across a half frozen field as grey snow spits out of the overcast sky. Makeshift winter clothes barely conceal the frigid exterior as their breath steams from their panting mouths. Their packs sag with wear and tear rather than from the dearth of survival gear. Each step proves more laborious than the next as they trek across what was once a vibrant, safe country. In the distance they spy an isolated, seemingly abandoned farmhouse and barn. Should they approach? Maybe there is food? Weapons? Supplies? Or worse?

Take Shelter (REVIEW)

Mainstream apocalypse fiction is an interesting contradiction. We see in these films, tv shows, and pieces of literature the representation of our own mass destruction and the uncanny entertainment that comes with witnessing the ultimate in violent spectacle. Though occupying unique tiers of fun and the sublime, the pervasiveness of current apocalypse narratives hints at a spreading anxiety concerning government and financial institutions as well as the relationship of humanity to the natural world.
