Arts The Art of the Meth-Based Horror Film
posted by March 9 at 11:29 AMon
With the cinematic horror genre dominated by faux snuff-and-torture shit like Saw 14: Flayed with an Apple Peeler, I’m finding much more gratifying horror-related entertainment in the burgeoning genre of shocking meth commercials.
Top of the heap: the Montana Meth Project, the visionary anti-meth campaign founded and funded by a concerned gazillionaire whose dream of bombarding Montana kids with meth-negative messages quickly turned the MMP into Montana’s biggest advertiser, with the group’s “saturation-level advertising” reportedly reaching 70-90 percent of Montana teens three times a week.
The group’s first wave of ads primarily targetted potential meth users’ vanity, with “Faces of Meth”-style ads. (See above.) But the latest batch of TV commercials takes things up a few horrifying notches, showing how meth can drive you to beat up your mom, fuck skeezy old guys in motel rooms for money, and ruin Christmas.
See them all here. (And don’t do meth.)
