Clarke: Oh fucking hell. This is mental, this is. I mean, he's dying anyway. Well, he is. I mean, it's not like it's going to save him. He's got, what, days?
Bella: Well, if it's what's in there makes those days easier, that'll do for me.

The Dogs in a Post-Apocalyptic World
29 April 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In a post-apocalyptic gray world, a woman, Bella, and her two partners, Clarke and Anthony, drive to a warehouse to seek medical supplies for a common friend. They are scared with the surveillance system but find the necessary supply. Out of the blue, they are attacked by a powerful mechanical dog that kills Anthony and Bella has to flee. Clarke drives a van and Bella drives the car, and both are hunted down by the dog. Will they survive?

"Metalhead" is so far the weakest episode of "Black Mirror". The plot has no explanation and the viewer only acknowledge that the world is destroyed without any green and controlled by "dogs". Are these alien machines? What happened to the population? Is there a safe place in the world? Why the trio risked their life knowing that there are invincible dogs? My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Metalhead"
