Weekend Heller: Death To The Living Dead
Its A-LIVE. But this is no fictional zombie or Frankenstein monster. There’s a resurgence throughout Europe and The United States of fascists and autocrats that once roamed the earth. Italy is not exception. The Guardian reports that the long disgraced Il Duce is returning to and roaming the streets of Rome. Rather than leave him a bloated memory, hanging upside down with his mistress and comrades from a gas station in Milan, his bloated ego has returned in an heroic guise in calendar form and a satiric movie and novel too. When the memories return its not long before the dead arise.
