Bad TV show from the 70s
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is low on many things. The plot is very sluggish, and hardly discernible, except that there is not much water kicking around, and everybody wants it. And then the water conveniently shows up out of nowhere, so now these dumb people can start eating each other.

There are close-ups of people eating bugs, lizards and human flesh. It starts with a silly-looking plane crash and just gets worst as these dumb people try to save themselves in the desert. Terrible dialog and illogical decisions by the survivors make the movie little more than a bad TV show plot.

What there was no flight plan or "may day" transmitted? It's not even worth further discussion.
