Yet Another Underrated Corman Film
17 June 2003 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

This very underrated low budget end of the world movie focuses on what drives men against one another. When the world's oxygen supply is inexplicably cut off for a short time, a trio of divers using oxygen tanks, a married couple named Harold (Anthony Carbone) & Evelyn Gern (Betsy Jones-Moreland) and their friend Martin Joyce(Robert Towne), suddenly find they are from all appearances the only 3 people left alive. But 2 men and 1 woman don't make for a very good mix we soon discover.

This is absolute fascinating to watch unfold. Jones-Moreland gives one of her finest performances and the final showdown between Harold and Martin in the Church is an unforgettable moment.

One problem the film has is it never really explains things enough...they just happen but maybe that's not such a bad thing after all come to think of it.
