The best one of the latest bunch though was this extremely macabre one about people being forced to race, or else have their heads exploded*. I got nothing against that kind of horror flick, mind you – and, done well, it can be pretty scary stuff. The problem is that you never can count on it being done well. And when part of the gimmick is having people recite things without affect, you maybe can count on it not being done well.
*It was called The Human Race, if you’re morbidly curious.
