hashtag alive was way worse

the general 'plot' / message of modern zombie movies seems to be that phones and consumer technology will save you. it reads like unsubtle propaganda: you're safe as long as you stay in your rented box with all your gizmos, phone service never goes out, so rely on it.

'get out' was the first genuinely scary movie I've seen in probably a decade, that must have been what watching Hitchcock must've been like, but it also had the same thing, that phones will save you.
