What's In The Chest? Here's My Theory.

C'mon people, it's so obvious!

The fact that the contents are glowing can only mean one thing: inside the chest is Marcellus' soul. Using the wayback machine, Tarantino visited the past and implanted a suggestion in Trampier's brain to draw this illustration, as a teaser / promo for Pulp Fiction.

The dude in the back is Marcellus, and is wearing a full-head bandage. As everyone knows, in the Bible it states that the Devil takes your soul out the back of your neck. The Devil knows this, and took Marcellus' soul, but all that was available to him was a rusty battleaxe and so he botched the job, leaving Marcellus with a nasty head-wound.

The illustration is also performing double-duty as a teaser for Reservoir Dogs. Now that Jules and Vincent have recovered Marcellus' soul, Marcellus is going to torch the two henchmen.

Damn that Tarantino is clever!

VINCENT: No, they got the Gygax system there, they wouldn't know what the fuck a Quarter Pounder is.

JULES: What'd they call it?

VINCENT: 2 1/2 Gold Piecer with Cheese.

That's how you're gonna beat 'em, 0D&D. They keep underestimating you.

"Giving an orc a foot massage and sticking your tongue in its holiest of holies ain't the same f**ing ballpark."

Where in the Bible does it say that the devil takes your soul out of the back of your neck? I've never seen that in MY Bible?

If we are talking oldschool, this could go further back than Pulp Fiction. Remember Repo Man? The thing in the trunk? The William S. Burroughs reference (I received an email from the director confirming this years ago)? Whatever it is, it is weird.

"You really don't want to look in the treasure chest"

The new RepoMen movie looks interesting, but ultimately its the same ride, the dangers of technology and consumerism, the ironic twist of the hunter becoming the hunted.

The point of the movie will be lost on 99% of those who watch it.
