Soylent Green (1973)

<b>Eco-disaster:</b> Overpopulation<br>
<br>
<b>Solution:</b> Take all those extra dead bodies and turn them into "soylent green," the green food ration chips supposedly made from high-energy plankton. Credit a homicide detective, played by Charlton Heston, to be the spoiler to this efficient recycling system by informing the unwitting public, "Soylent green is people!" Sounds like a warning, but could also be an ad slogan. After all, flavor trumps everything.
