Virus from a comet is unleashed on the world by a diabloical military man. Two scientists clash to unlock the serum. New Horizons favourite Maria Ford makes this worthwhile; she seems to get better with every performance. Stacy Keach is thrown in the mix and does almost all his scenes alone in a dark room. Looks like his contributions would have taken about an hour of work.

Another New Horizons entry that maximizes story at limited cost. A deadly virus is unleashed by a General leaving a husband and wife scientist team at odds. Disappointing even though they really tried to utilize Maria Ford.

In the distant future of 2017 mankind has decided to do the dumbest thing yet. In our infinite wisdom we chose to send viruses from a nearby comet back to earth with disastrous results. Now it's up to Bluntskull Beefcake and his wife (the general's daughter) to find a cure to the plague.

Don't let anyone fool you. This movie sucks. It does however have a few funny parts, which makes it worth watching.

Here are my favorite quotes from Future Fear.

Jeff Wincott - "Good morn'n VIETNAM."

Jeff Wincott - "No pickles. That's bullshit."

Jeff Wincott - "Eating just saved my life Robert. Ha ha ha ha."

What did I learn from watching Future Fear?

1. People named Plato Fountidikas die easily.
2. Don't tell your wife you want her to get an abortion after the world has ended. She won't take it well.
3. Don't try to accelerate the growth of test tube babies.
4. Spinning fan blades can easily be stopped by chucking your gun into them sideways.
5. The woman who loves you the most will kill you if she thinks the future depends on it.
6. Three billion people can die in a week and news reporters will remain monotone and calm.
7. Electronic bouncer systems suck.
8. Punching your wife in the face will make you very hungry for a sandwich.
9. Stacy Keach is easy to recognize but hard to remember where you know him from.
10. You can make a flame thrower from bar equipment.

Would I recommend watching this movie? Maybe. It depends on how desperate you are.

Le qualificatif qui me vient a l'esprit pour Future Fear, aka Epidemia en francais, est BIDON. Tout est bidon dans ce film, l'histoire, les combats, les armes, les effets speciaux, les persos, les dialogues, ... Tout!
Le general Wallace (Stacy Keach), avec ses hommes de main et la complicite d'une partie du gouvernement americain, tente d'instaurer le 4e Reich en contaminant le monde grace a un virus mortel recuperee par une sonde spatiale explorant la queue d'une comete. Apres cette epuration de quelques milliards de sous hommes, le general et ses acolytes pourront reigner sur la Terre. Mais M. Grosbras est la et devra se battre contre son ex-femme, Mme Nichonspointus (aux ordres du general Wallace), pour sauver l'humanite. Voila dans les grosses lignes, j'ai essaye de faire simple!
Ah, ca faisait une solde de caporal-chef que j'avais pas mate un nanar... Et la c'est tout de suite du lourd! C'est un bric-a-brac de virus alien, complot gouvernemental, nazis, clonage, maitre du monde, Alice au pays des merveilles, intrigue amoureuse, baston dans les water, ... Un peu beaucoup pour une si petite production signee Roger Corman (tout de meme)!
Du coup, on rigole beaucoup, passee la premiere 1/2h a pleurer sur son unique Euro bien mal investi dans ce DVD, soit...
La scene de l'helico qui se crashe vaut son pesant de cacahuetes comme disent les animaux au zoo. L'acteur affuble d'un casque ridicule se contentant de secouer la tete, le cameraman faisant de meme avec sa camera. Tout ca finit dans une belle explosion numerique realisee sur un TO7-70. Mais la scene qui vaut a elle seul le coup de se taper les 91 minutes de ce Future Fear, c'est celle de la baston dans les waters (vous aviez deja tique plus haut, non?). Notre heros etant dans une facheuse posture, un couteau au niveau des parties genitales, surprend son agresseur (qui n'est autre que son ex-femme) et attrape le debouche-chiotte pour se defendre. S'en suit une violente rixe a coups de debouche-chiotte et il lui assenere meme un "Tu devrais avoir honte de t'en prendre a la queue de ton mari!". Au cours ce combat debile on a droit a des flash-backs sur leurs ebats amoureux de l'epoque ou ils etaient maries et on y trouve certaines similitudes dans les positions. Si tant est que vous frappez et etouffez votre partenaire pendant l'acte! (sic!)
Bref! Comme pour The man with the screaming brain, c'etait le creux de la vague pour Stacy Keach qui devait pourtant bien continuer a bouffer...
