Two pretty high school girls (one a cheerleader!) don't like their stepmother or her new boyfriend ("Daddy would have gotten us Uzis!"). One morning, they wake up to find that everybody in Los Angeles has been turned to dust by a Comet except them, a guy who looks like Erik Estrada, some zombies and the occupants of a secret underground government installation.

As Regina emerges from the movie theater the morning after the comet, a poster for Death Race 2000 (1975) can be seen on the theater door. Mary Woronov appears in both films. See more »
When the initial scene in the projection booth begins, we see a steel shipping reel running at the top of the projector. In all other shots after that one (presumably within the same 20-minute running time of a 2000' 35mm film reel) the reel changes from the steel shipping reel to a cast aluminum house reel. See more »
I originally saw this movie in the theater, and I LOVED it! I had often fantasized about the end of the world where only myself a few others had survived.
Well, I'm 16 years older now, and not quite as misanthropic, but I still got a kick out of watching this again the other night. Sure, the soundtrack was atrocious, and some of the acting was sub-par, but the sheer aplomb that "Samantha" has carries the film, I thought.
Plus, it was fun to see Robert Beltran (ST: Voyager's second in command), so much younger!
Quite a few laughs, and a pretty good plot twist or two to keep you guessing makes this an easy movie to enjoy.
My rating: 7
