Thank you to Kim Newman

who, in the latest (to me) Sight and Sound, sums up the predominant theme of modern horror films (explicitly the torture porn sub-genre but also, to my mind, the malignant plague of zombie films.)

"Other people are shit."

I think Satre said it more elegantly "Hell is other people".

I know we can argue this in person, but it's not the same thing. I don't think Sartre was proposing that "other people" are inherently disposable.

Probably not, but he treated most people in his life like shit.
