not overly impressed with this aftermath. i was all set to get rid of it but then i realized that this is an official video nasty. it must be the least nasty of the bunch
This movie is less a disaster movie as it is a sci-fi mash-up of many movies in the 70's with a somehow-sounding-like Star Trek soundtrack. The directing is technically poor and the storyline is as depressing as it is believable.
Sid Haig is the only thing that saves this movie from getting zero stars. If Ed Wood had directed an adaptation of "The Road" it would probably end up being something like this. Oh, and if you are wondering, there are no zombies in the movie.
After a lengthy mission in space without any communication with Earth, a trio of astronauts decide to crash land back on home land, with two surviving, namely lead hero Steve Barkett (who also wrote and directed this drivel). It's not long before they realize that the apocalypse occurred on Earth and only a handful of survivors remain, which include a vicious biker gang that kill men, women, and children, and are led by the always awesome Sid Haig (Spider Baby, The Devil's Rejects) who is the ONLY good thing about this film. There are also a couple of SLIGHTLY mutated humans walking around trying to attack the good guys. No zombies whatsoever, though. Barkett eventually meets up with a museum curator (the late Forrest J. Ackerman in a potentially pedophile role) who has a young boy with him that he gives to Barkett just before he dies. The two run into the Barkett's eventual love interest, Lynne Margulies (best remembered as Andy Kaufman's girlfriend who Courtney Love played in Man on the Moon), who has hot sex with Barkett a couple of times, dies at the hands of Haig's gang, and is avenged by Barkett in a no-holds-barred all out war as Barkett magically manages to take out an entire army. Not good enough to even be so-bad-it's-good quality. It's nice to see cameos from the likes of Ackerman and Dick Miller (actually, his voice on the radio), and Sid Haig is great in this, but this movie serves as nothing more than Steve Barkett to deliver self-righteous, self-loving, D-grade post-apocalyptic trash. I couldn't wait for this schlocky shit to end! Definitely worth a watch for Sid Haig fans though but, again, don't let the bad re-titling of this movie fool you. NO ZOMBIES WHATSOEVER.
Heheh,taa on tuttu nuoruusvuosilta, suttuisilta VHS vuokravideoilta. Hauskaa katseltavaa, on niin paljon epÃ¤johdonmukaisuuksia ja klaffifirheitÃ¤ ettei ole tosi. Huonoha tÃ¤mÃ¤ on, mutta... :D
Mahtavaa komediaa..vaikka liene tosissaa on leffa yritetty tehdÃ¤.
