I like it, but I imagined it as more KJV Bible-y, myself. I do like the 1950’s hygiene films look of it, though.
"There is nothing I can think of that is ennobling about pain. Emotional or physical. Suffering breaks us down in both body and spirit, isolates us in our misery, cuts us off from one another. It’s also something we’ll all experience someday in one form or another, whether in a hospital bed or on a dark city street in the wrong part of town. Pain partakes of something primal in us, something all sentient creatures know, not just humans. And we’d damn sure better have a look at it. At what it does to us, how it changes us, at why and how it grows. Someone once theorized that horror films and horror writing allow us to rehearse for death. I don’t know about that but I do know they rehearse us for worlds of grief and agony. They reflect those worlds, our worlds, through someone else’s…
As Doug Winter’s said, horror’s not a genre, it’s an emotion. Likewise pain is us. We’ve all had it, we’ll all have it again. To shrink from pain in any form of art is to shrink from something fundamental about life, from part of the human, animal condition. Not that everybody has to tackle it, but that’s not to say we should walk away from it either. It’s dishonest."
