Movie Reviews

A true original in an age of copycats
TheFashionChica | Florida | 07/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film is refreshingly new and original and crosses all borders of definition... With a plot that is unusual, funny and even intelligently thought-provoking; and a bit of blood and gore and sex thrown into the mix, all set to a killer soundtrack...

Taking a post-apocalyptic angle on politics in the USA, this film is set in the not-so-distant future after a nuclear blast has cleared out most of what we know of our modern America. 20 years after the decimation, survivors emerge from underground bunkers to duke it out over who will rule "New America"... There is a cocky devil ("spawn of Satan" that is) who likes to drink martinis and smoke cigarettes, there are dysfunctional robots, a maniac with a chainsaw, a descendant of Fidel Castro, and a pretty, feisty, man-eating girl... and a hot beach party (where they play one of the best songs in the movie).

The scope of this film reaches far beyond a simple one paragraph synopsis though... it is LOADED with fresh talent-- Kevin Wheatley ("Tex"), Alex Reznik ("Yorick") Paul Whitty ("Quincy"), Lee Coco ("Jackle"), and the subtle but highly impressive Ted Schneider ("Marcellus") all stand out with natural comedic ability-- and the film carries a distinct passion that only comes from the handy-work of independent filmmakers, young ones at that. Can't wait to see what they will do next..."
Suprisingly good!

"My dad gave me this movie to watch and, based on the cover, I thought it was going to be another stupid, National Lampoon sex-comedy. I was very suprised to find that it is very watchable and has an interesting plot. The humor is more character-driven; it isn't all gags. I really liked this movie and would reccomend it to anyone."

"What a title ! Building expectations to something interesting....instead you get a disdainful pieeece. They tryed but failed miserably. I forced my self to watch for maybe half the movie, but felt so cheated for the wasted time. I could have been washing my toilet. Very possibly the poorest result ever put out on film."
