Podcasta la Vista, Baby! Episode 24 – Maggie

A father’s duty is to protect his daughter.

This month, we’re joined by author and chair of the Puget Sound Socialist Party, Chelsea Rustad to explore perhaps the most unexpected and interesting departure from the expected Schwarzenegger oeuvre, an independent zombie family drama: Maggie!

As civilization buckles under a deadly zombie pandemic, farmer Wade Vogel retrieves his runaway teenage daughter, Maggie, after she’s been infected with the incurable virus. Hoping to spare her an inhumane government quarantine and struggling to cope with his inability to protect her, Wade brings Maggie home to care for her in her last days. As her condition worsens, Wade wonders if he can bring himself to do the unthinkable.

  1. Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of this movie. But given what you all said about Arnold’s performance, I’m now I am very curious about seeing it. However, I’m hesitant as well; like Chelsea, I’ve had a few losses in my immediate family in the past few years, and I find it really hard to, in particular, watch movies and TV shows that prominently deal with that kind of loss. I’ll give it some thought…

    Also, I can really relate to what both Chelsea and Casey said about probably never watching this movie again. For me, there’s a whole subset of movies and books that I will acknowledge are quite good, and I’m glad I watched/read them, but that were so emotional heavy and/or harrowing that I know I’ll never go back to them (Terry Gilliam’s Tideland is an example of a movie, and several of Doris Lessing’s novels are books that fall into that category for me).
