Documentary Review: Apocalypse: Staline

ApocalypseStalineDoing something different this week because we recently watched the three part documentary, Apocalypse: Staline on the American Hero Channel, and I came away terrified. Here’s what it’s about:

“Joseph Stalin’s rise to power while killing a FUCK load of innocent human beings.”

That happens to be my synopsis for the show in case you didn’t notice.

You know that saying, “Stranger than fiction,” well, it also works for “More horrific than fiction.” This documentary is just another reminder that down through history, us Average Joe’s are helpless as we stand by and watch our leaders pick sides with who they think is the lesser of two evils. In this case, the Allies joined forces with a man who makes Satin himself look like a sympathetic guy.

The footage is spectacular! I wondered what Russian archives were opened to make this mini-series. I watched engrossed as each and every minute of this documentary progressed. So well done! Go now, watch it on the American Hero Channel’s website or YouTube (I think it’s there too.).

Come back and tell me you don’t see similarities to a certain man who also wants to rise to the most power position on earth today. I mean it’s much better to live in denial, right? Kidding, of course. Couldn’t resist adding my own political commentary. Just watch it and be reminded of how much worse this world has been in the past along with the knowledge that history DOES repeat itself.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Bloody Brains

Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments.
I prefer movies rated below a 4 on IMDB.
