Damnation Alley (1977)
A small but hardy band of survivors traverses a post-apocalypse American landscape in this sci-fi thriller. A horrific nuclear assault leaves only three survivors at an underground military facility, so Tanner (Jan-Michael Vincent), Denton (George Peppard), and Keegan (Paul Winfield) commandeer a special all-terrain land cruiser and head for Albany, NY, the only American city to be spared in the attack. As they travel through the desolate post-nuke wastelands, the soldiers pick up a beautiful woman (Dominique Sanda) and an incorrigible teenager (Jackie Earle Haley), as they battle huge mutant insects, packs of survivors turned violent and feral, and brutal electrical storms that savage the already barren plains. Damnation Alley was based on a novel by award-winning speculative fiction author Roger Zelazny. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Damnation Alley
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.
gonzo guilty pleasure
The world is damned...if not for Peppard, a momma tank, and his early A-Teamers.
Ooooo, one large slice of delicious apocalyptic cheese, please.
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.More
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.
