Over nine years of zombie mode Call of Duty one of the optional appendage appeared in a full game in the game: a single scenario, tasks, and huge levels, Packed with a ton of references to popular culture. In the first Chapter of the zombie campaign Infinite Warfare, the four heroes made a splash in the world of the 80s. the New DLC threw them to severskoy a rave 90-x — no less colorful place in Redwood. In the role of guest stars — the inimitable Kevin Smith (the Director of “Dogma” and everyone’s favorite Silent Bob).
Cost to find yourself in the first room, as the nose appeared very familiar cabin in the woods with deer head. Went outside — took home machete, the Voorhees family. Passed away — found placid lake, familiar zasmotreny to the holes of the cassettes. And this is just a cursory inspection. What is not a reason to dig deeper and find all the movie references in reversly slaughter?
“Friday the 13th”
Although Rave in the Redwoods there is no Jason Voorhees, and over the surface of the lake is not posted disturbing “Ki-Ki-mA-mA”, the influence of the cult series of horror Sean Cunningham noticeable to the naked eye. From direct movie quotes like a torn tent or pier with stacks of boats to replicas of the main characters on “the guy who drowned in the lake”. Recognizable pier with lanterns, those wooden houses. Well, the machete, the titular weapon of the murderer in a hockey mask. Ruby, slash Sabatino — do not want.
A serial killer named Slasher, haunting four characters Rave in the Redwoods — the social Director. Could be armed with a hammer, knife or chainsaw, but then it bloody harvest would lose the original handwriting. He chose a circular saw is not the most popular torture instrument from movie maniacs. Last time on the screen is the weapon buzzed in 2003 in the film by French Director Alexander Azha. “Bloody harvest” — a study in scarlet with podvyvertom: whether slasher about two students and the maniac, or love drama, or psychological Thriller. Monsieur Even knows his perversions.
“Freddy vs Jason”
If the Redwood to pick up from dead zombies wallet and throw the gem in a fire, the world will be painted in a colour spread, and the enemies will Shine neon. A mind-bending trip that would be envied by Raul Duke from “Fear and loathing in Las Vegas”. It is not excluded that the alternative appearance of enemies inspired by the costume Raver from “Freddy vs Jason” in episode party in a cornfield danced, the guy in the black suit with fluorescent sticks. From the same tape the developers have borrowed Indian design camp Crystal lake, which is clearly visible in Rave in the Redwoods: the statue of the bird and the bear, the totem poles.
“The evil dead”
Ash Williams and the company is not the first time look in the Activision shooter. For example, in one of the multiplayer maps Call of Duty: Ghosts it is possible to find not only a tape recorder of the Professor Noubi, yellow “Oldsmobile” and a shed with tools from the films of Sam Raimi, but even the basement of a remake of Federico Alvarez. In Rave in the Redwoods on the “evil dead” resemble a fireplace and a deer head in the starting area. Giggle bad voice, just they moved in deity, horned effigies do not know, but the glowing blue light and fly through the air.
In chernushny Comedy “the psychic”, gut-wrenching inside out genre cliches about crazy redneck and turns the wrong way, one of the most hilarious moments is associated with the wood chipper. Similar thing yellow in camp “the bear lake” installed next to the shooting range. Zombie hillbilly with axes, most likely, also looked at the Rave party in the Redwoods straight out of “Lethal vacation”.
“House of the dead”
American students travel to a remote island to chill at a rave party. But instead of dancing in the woods young lazy waiting for the zombie Apocalypse. There’s no fun in the style of the 90s? There would have to survive from dusk till dawn. Sound familiar? Not surprising, because the plot complication of the odious film “the House of the dead” rhymes with the history of Rave in the Redwoods. In a zombie campaign, even making disco scene similar. Not to mention the machete, which plays a role in the events of netlenki by Uwe Boll.
“The witch from Blair: Course from the world”
Lee Ross, project Director of the zombie mode of Call of Duty: aerial Warfare, consider the “Blair Witch” among the favorite horror movies of the 90s. References to the cult low-budget tape 1999, which set the fashion for mockumentary horror films, and zombie adventure. At the end of “Witches from Blair” heroes find a hut, whose walls are dotted with prints. Such messages are easy to see in and around Bear lake: for example, at the exit from the starting house. Wheel of brushwood on the pier and the broken tree next to a dance floor is also reminiscent of the sinister events of “Witches”.
“Return of the living dead 5: Rave from the grave”
The official slogan of a new zombie add-on for Infinite Warfare: “They came back from the dead and ready to party at the rave” (Back from the grave and ready to RAVE). The phrase is likely to beat the name of the movie “return of the living dead 5: Rave from the grave” (Rave To The Grave). In this low-grade horror film notable for two things. Disco, taken to save the budget in the vicinity of Chernobyl, and a way of turning Ravers into rotten brain eaters — an overdose of toxic drugs.
In Rave in the Redwoods near the pier structure-raft, with which you can lure fish. Little Yes zubastenkaya create willingly eat and the walking dead, and players who find themselves in the water. An obvious reference to the satirical horror film “piranha,” Joe Dante, which also occurred at a summer camp on the lake.
The Burning Man festival and “the Wicker man”
Art festival “Burning man” (Burning Man) — the feast of disobedience for adults, held annually in the United States. The culmination of the event was a pagan dancing around a huge human figure, which is then burned. Something similar was probably trying to uchudit and the hapless visitors dance party at Bear lake. If we draw Parallels with the movie, can’t avoid comparisons with “the Wicker man” — a brilliant British Thriller 1973, the characters which with a twinkle celebrated may day on a forested island off the coast of Scotland.
