Venom 2 has plenty of carnage


Aaron Ayala, staff writer

The symbiotic relationship continues, but the chaos begins.

Being the city’s protector, but feared by most people that don’t know about him, Eddie Brock is still struggling to coexist with the shape-shifting extraterrestrial, Venom. When deranged serial killer Cletus Kasady also becomes host to an alien symbiote, Brock and Venom must put aside their differences to stop his reign of terror. The context of them “putting their differences aside” is that Eddie is getting sick and tired of Venom deteriorating his life, always causing messes, mental stress, and discomfort.

Ironically, Venom is what keeps Eddie alive through all the death guaranteed moments in action. Cletus Kasady began as a locked up convict because of his degrees in murder of his family. Of course, Eddie is a journalist, so he goes for an interview to the demented man  in solitary confinement in a maxi-seceruity facility.

Getting a word with him, Venom gets offended and attacks Cletus, but Kasady ends up biting Eddie and gets blood in his mouth. Now most people won’t catch on to what that actually means. Venom is in Eddie’s DNA, so when Cletus bit him, a sample of Venom entered his body, giving birth to a new symbiote, Carnage.

Now I can offer you a little information about Kasady’s love life. While in confinement, he finds love with a woman named Shriek, but unfortunately for her she was kept in something worse than prison. A glass box that she could not escape from or make further interactions with. She has the power to scream beyond glass breaking decibels, being supernatural, she is kept away from society.

Cletus’s one goal is to escape to be with his one true love, and to cause reign to the city of San Francisco. It is up to Eddie and Venom to stop this abomination of a Bonnie and Clyde couple.
