Movie Info

A small but hardy band of survivors traverses a post-apocalypse American landscape in this sci-fi thriller.

Slow moving, with cheesy visual effects and some nasty B-movie trappings. But the story and setting are both dreary and fascinating. And performances are top notch.

The world is damned...if not for Peppard, a momma tank, and his early A-Teamers.

Audience Reviews for Damnation Alley

A hightly imaginative and trippy trip through a post-apocalyptic wasteland with Jan-Michael Vincent and George Peppard. I liked the experience. Those man-eating cockroaches were freaky however. It kind of loses track of the voyage near the ending.

Whatever it has laughably bad effects, that include giant scorpions that are the worst superimposition job I've ever seen. It's got a couple cool part, with flesh eating bugs and a group of dudes gone crazy in the aftermath and are hostile to the crew, but above all it doesn't really have anything that other films haven't done better.
It did entertain me.
