ゾンビ

監督:ジョージ・A・ロメロ
音楽:ゴブリン、ダリオ・アルジェント
脚本;ジョージ・A・ロメロ
出演デヴィッド・エムゲ、ケン・フォリー、スコット・H・ライニガー、ゲイラン・ロスほか

「金字塔」

前売券をもらった「隣の家の少女」を観るためにシアターN渋谷に足を運んだのですが、その日は水曜日で誰でも1000円デー。ついつい一度も観たこともないゾンビを選んでしまいました。13日の金曜日を初めて観たのは数ヶ月前、ゴッドファーザーも昨年初めて観ました。古い映画を観るのは重い腰を上げる感じになるのですが、一時代を築いたような古典に触れるのはいいですね。

ロメロ監督は、このゾンビ以前に生き返った死人を扱った映画を扱っているようなのですが、タイトルから分かるとおり金字塔みたいな作品なのかもしれません。ロメロ監督自身、これ以降に生き返った死人を扱った作品をライフワークのように撮り続け、他の監督がこれをリスペクトし、今やゾンビ映画は全世界に広がっています。

ということでこのゾンビ、何故出てきたか理由ははっきり分からないのですが、登場人物が一言呟いた「地獄が人で溢れたため追い返された」という言葉に妙に説得力があります。何かの宗教の考え方なのかもしれません。

ゾンビから逃げ出した主人公たちが向かったのは、何故かショッピングセンター。ここまで来る展開はちょっとかったるいのですが、ショッピンセンターに来ると少しテンポが良くなります。そこには何を買うわけでもなく、歩き回るゾンビたち。ゾンビは本能に近い動き方をするので、銃を持ったからといって攻撃してきたり、人間の肉は食べたくても走って追いかけてくるわけではないのですが、これがゲームっぽくて妙な緊張感を生み出します。

主人公たちは後にギャング団に襲撃されるのですが、ゾンビよりも人間の方が怖いというのが滑稽でした。主人公の中の女性は存在の意味が分からなかったのですが、女ゾンビが服をドアに挟まれているのを助けてあげたり、自分に興味を示しているような男ゾンビと目を合わせてあげたりと女心みたいなものが微妙に観客の心に染みてきます。

もし今、このような映画を作ったなら、CGや特殊メイクを駆使して本当に怖いものになるでしょうが、後半に向けて段々雑になる青いファンデーションを塗るだけのメイクはアナログっぽい味があって楽しいです。といってもこれは現代人からの目。当時は怖くて怖くて仕方がなかった映画なのかもしれません。

ちなみに、ゾンビがショッピングセンターに集まるのは、彼らが生きていた頃の記憶「ここは楽しいところ」というのが刷り込まれているからだとか。人間の本能を垣間見るようで興味深い設定だと思います。

評価に移ります。

基礎点(15)+技術点(33)+芸術点(23)×1.5-減点(0)=CinemaX指数(83)

「C」評価(80~99点)

ゾンビは、怖そうで怖くない、今流行りのラー油のような映画です。劇中のほとんどに明るい音楽が流れるのは一見、奇妙ですが、これが逆に恐怖心を演出します。これに比べると視覚や音楽で過大に演出するただ怖いだけのホラー映画は小さく見えてきます。

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
