Day of the Dead 2: Contagium (2005) (part 4 of 6)

Note: A few of the images in this recap may be not safe for work, or rather, not safe for lunch. It gets a bit gruesome, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Vaguely Gay Guy is now in Dr. Malkovich’s office again. Malkovich is hilariously freaked out as he looks over Emma’s miracle pregnancy test results. This just leads into part two of the pointless berating we saw earlier. Vaguely Gay Guy defends the lovebirds with, “They’re getting married.” They are? I must’ve missed that.

Malkovich is not buying into the Isaac/Emma OTP, especially since the former is a “necrophobic”. Wait… in his first scene, Isaac was nattering on about how death was a good and natural thing, and don’t fear the reaper, and all that. Also, I thought he was being treated for “supernatural fantasies”. The diagnosis here is just a tad inconsistent, but then again, there’s no technical psychiatric term for “annoying wuss”.

By the way, we’re nearly halfway through the movie, and we’re still dealing with really pointless subplots. People are turning into zombies, and chaos is about to ensue; I don’t really care who gets to be in what ward, or who gets released a month early. This is not going anywhere. Goddammit, movie, show me some zombies!
