The scariest movie ever made?
I follow Roger Ebert on Twitter. He’s easily one of the more active and interesting 140 character-spewing denizens of the Twitterverse, and someone well worth following.
I was curious yesterday when he referred to “Collapse,” a movie I’d never heard of, as the scariest movie ever made. Having been burned by “Paranormal Activity,” I had to click over to his site to read more.
Turns out, “Collapse” is a documentary, whose sell line is “It’s happened to every great civilization.”
Paraphrasing the synopsis, “Collapse” is an extended dialog with independent reporter Michael Ruppert; who, through the course of the film, spells out how our society is stampeding towards certain (if not immediate) apocalypse.
The trailer intrigued me to the point that I wanted to go home and instantly watch it On Demand. By the time I actually got home, I decided I was freaked out enough by its concept that I didn’t want to see it. In other words, I opted to take the Matrix blue pill.
Have you seen it? Is it crackpot theory? Legit? Should we be scared…very, very scared?
