From the marketing material for StagKnight: "An entirely independent project, following in the footsteps of Shaun of the Dead, StagKnight boasts better kills, hotter babes, more laughs and one of the most original horror villains ever seen."
Am reminded of lyrics from Roger Water's best solo album, Amused to Death (itself inspired by Neil Postman's best book, Amusing Ourselves to Death -- worthwhile if you've not already read it, especially now that the 20th anniversary edition has an excellent introduction by Neil's very funny son, Andrew Postman):
No tears to cry
No feelings left
This species has amused itself to death.
Am also reminded of lyrics from Leonard Cohen's song, The Future, on the soundtrack to Natural Born Killers:
When they said repent,
I wondered what they meant.
Or as Postman himself said, "What is the antidote to a culture's being drained by laughter?"
Better kills, hotter babes, more laughs: Could it not be the slogan of most videogames? The tagline of most media? The national anthem of most contemporary cultures?
