Oh reality shows. And movies about them. It’s kind of hard to shock us now, because so many shows do just about anything possible. That said, Human Zoo tries. It tells the story of a show broadcast on the interwebs where contestants see how long they can stay in solitary confinement to win a million dollar prize.
Robert Carradine is in this as The Producer. He’s finally taking a page out of his dad’s book, showing up in movies for a few moments just so they can put his name on the poster. Here’s hoping we see more of this soon.
If you like seeing people be degraded in prison cells, then this film is for you. After seeing Japanese reality shows like Prize Contest Life on Susunu! Denpa Shonen, where a man named Nasubi was quarantined by himself with no clothes and forced to enter contests to survive for 15 months while 17 million fans watched, this seems like a normal day.
You can learn more at the official site. Human Zoo is now available On Demand and DVD from Wild Eye Releasing.
