Storyline

In the nuclear ravaged wasteland of Earth 2087 water is as precious as life itself. The isolated Lost Wells outpost survived the holocaust and the inhabitants guard the source of their existence. Now an evil cult of renegades want control of their valuable water supply. And the villagers are no match for such brute military force. Only one man can help the stricken community - a mercenary living in a distant cannibal city. But even he, and his strange henchmen, may not be able to survive in the world gone wild.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The original version implied that the dangerous cult based itself on one of the few books remaining after the holocaust: L. Ron Hubbard's "Dianetics." Lawyers for Scientology got wind of this and threatened to sue Apollo Pictures, who removed all references to Hubbard and Dianetics. See more »

Goofs

Ethan says, "We have Hydrogen dioxide," meaning water. But water is known as dihydrogen oxide or dihydrogen monoxide. Hydrogen Dioxide would be HO2, which cannot exist. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the end credits, Adam Ant as Derek Abernathy closes his bible, makes a sign with his right hand and says "Let us pray". See more »

A Magical Trip
11 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ok It's true, the only character in this film experiencing any magic is Bruce Dern's, but it really is a fun trip. And if you can get over the cheesy music, and lame graphics in the opening credits, you will probably enjoy some of the bizarre humor it offers. The characters are memorable, and almost invite you to laugh along with them.
