5. Indiana Jones And The Resident Evil 5-Like ‘Is It Racist?’ Nervousness
The plot: Something about voodoo and zombies and stuff, in the remote mud-hut villages of Africa.
In fact, let’s just plunder the Resident Evil 5 game wholesale for this one. An icky parasite has been chewing its way into the minds of townspeople, turning them into mindless slaves to their own insatiable blood-lust.
But there’s no weird side-plot involving the black market sale of biological weapons because that’s a) too realistic for Indy and b) too likely to get Paramount sued by Capcom.
In this case, it’s a weird side-plot about the black market sale of, umm, a haunted ivory chalice or something.
The twist: At one point, Indy is infected with a parasite too, meaning that his cabal of assorted helpers have to shackle him up in the back of their Jeep and race him to a desert shaman.
The climax: Indy escapes and goes on a massive killing spree, and it all ends in nauseating tangles of knotted viscera and glistening fountains of claret seeping into the sand.
