“Spider-man: across the universes”: a movie comic in the truest sense

The franchise “spider-Man” began its life in the sixties of the last century and for such a considerable period has grown seriously. If all began with the story of Peter Parker, then in the future radioactive spiders bit a variety of people and inhumans in parallel, restarted and simply alternative universes.

As a result, zombie horror, however, did not work: “the Dead do not die” (The Dead Don’t Die) is a viscous, melancholic story with a handful of humor and sad morality, which tries to laugh at the declared genre.

The plot is familiar: there was a global Apocalypse, the world began to change and the dead climbed out of the ground. And the viewer is shown how a tiny American town with a population of just over 700 people copes with such an invasion. Continue reading
