It's sometime in the near future when the ozone layer has been completely deleted, most animal species and nearly all vegetation have been destroyed and people can't go out in the sunlight without covering due to the UV rays. A small family move into a new town where the mad scientist father, working on "accelerated evolution," has an accident with the chemicals and ends up dissolving into a swarm of "elements" and turning their home into a virtual rain forest.
The teen son (Balthazar Getty) is immune to the radiation thanks to his parent's experiments and has some problems at school with bullies after falling for an independent-minded blonde cutie (Laura Harris, who's great). Eventually the house, itself a living being, fights back when misunderstanding townspeople invade. Alice Krige is perfect as a sexy, offbeat mother with wild flowing hair and long gowns and Kenneth Welsh scores as an obnoxious high school boxing coach.
Long lost director Rene Daalder, pretty much absent from the directors chair since his 1976 cult hit MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH, has crafted a very entertaining sci-fi film with a literate, funny, offbeat and intelligent script with a good, non-preachy environmental protection messages and some neat FX work.
