Spartacus: War of the Damned Trailer – Bring on the Gore
I think the best thing about the Spartacus series is the way it can excite a crowd of people simply by demonstrating how unbelievably violent and gory it can be. So when Spartacus: War of the Damned debuted its new trailer at Comic-Con, not only was I unsurprised by how little of the plot was touched upon, but I didn’t even care because all I wanted to see was more Roman soldiers being cut down in heinous, disgusting ways. Does that make me a twisted human being? You bet it does, but I’m hardly alone in my love of bloodshed. Everyone else is just as sick as me, but nobody is as sick as whoever comes up with the deaths fr Spartacus in the first place.
Make no mistake; there is a war going on in War of the Damned. Spartacus and his gladiators have a lot of people to kill, and they are efficient at it. I’m pretty sure 93 percent of the trailer is of people dying in creative ways. My personal favorite, though hardly creative, is the guy who gets the spear shoved through his mouth. The blood really flies and it entrances you. It wasn’t until my second viewing that I noticed the introduction of Crassus, the new villain for the series.
This will be the final season of Spartacus, so there is tons of motivation to make this the most epic one yet. The fights will be bigger, the episodes more intense, and nobody will be safe from death. Well, except for Caesar. But that’s only if the writers decide they want to make a historically accurate ending for their story. I’m hoping for a glorious death for Spartacus himself. That’s one part of history I don’t want them to change. But who knows. They say legends never die, so it could be that Spartacus is spared a grizzly fate befitting a hero.
