Santorum Horror Movie Ad Slams Obama

March 29, 2012 by staff 

Santorum Horror Movie Ad Slams Obama, A squawking crow. A single shoe turned on its side. Dark skies. A slow-spinning carousel on an empty playground. All the ingredients of a horror movie come together in a Rick Santorum presidential campaign video that depicts a terrifying “Obamaville”.

The video has grabbed attention for its use of scary themes and images in the world of political ads. It was released at a time when Santorum lags Mitt Romney in the Republican race to find a challenger to President Barack Obama in the November 6 election.

Complete with eerie music, the video is a teaser for an eight-part series and looks like an “Amityville Horror,” “Twilight Zone” and Alfred Hitchcck mash-up.

Using the time-tested tools of horror masters, it paints a picture of a frightening future if Obama wins re-election.

In some shots, the camera’s movement slows and zooms in, a favorite filmmaker technique to make viewers feel uneasy.

“Those kind of shots are common to post-apocalyptic zombie movies. You kind of half expect a zombie to shamble around the corner,” said Spencer Parsons, who teaches film production at Northwestern University and is finishing work on his own horror film.

The setting is a run-down town called “Obamaville.” The year is 2014, after the Democratic president’s re-election.

A dozen iconic horror movie images fill the minute-long video: barren trees, empty streets, a clock with fast-spinning hands, a candle that flames out, a baby.
