In the post-apocalyptic near-future, the world is held in the icy grip of a nuclear winter. The residents of a massive network of concrete bunkers struggle to survive against starvation and radioactive mutants. When a search party is lost on a routine "supply run", the colony finds a nearly-dead man lying in the snow. The new addition to the colony's population happens to be a shifty-eyed Russian refugee named Evanushka. Written by
During the World War III flashback - the "Russian" car that hits Evanushka has American plates, and many of the Russian soldiers actually have American Air Cavalry patches on their uniforms. See more »
Decent no-budget effort from MAM with a freezing apocalyptic twist. Martinez plunders the Italian vaults and took some editing lessons, creating a much more coherent film than his previous Space Worms. While the acting is leagues above that film, it is still poor here and is the biggest distraction (well, that and no ending). The writing is no great shakes either, but this project comes together quite well in all the technical departments. Great stunts like the car hit and free fall were brilliant, as were the war scenes, Russian Mohawks and all. The comedic touches (like the patient constantly getting stepped on) were actually funny and not just stupid like past Martinez humor. Someone give this guy a budget and some actors.
