Storyline

Returning from Outer Space, A astronaut calling himself "The Survivor" finds a nuclear war has left the Earth as a desert wasteland. The Survivor spends 10 years of his life roaming across the desert wasteland in search of other people who may have survived the nuclear war. His 10 year search leads him to finding a woman who tells him about a rumored underground city that lies somewhere beneath the desert wasteland and The Survivor thinks the woman knows where it is. But the woman is kidnapped by a man named Kragg before she can reveal to him the location of the underground city. The Survivor goes in search of the underground city as he goes in pursuit of Kragg and his men and rescue the woman from her captors. Written by Daniel Williamson

a hidden trashure
25 May 2002 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The memory I have of this film goes a long way back ever since I saw the theatrical trailer (it actually got released in the Philipines back in '87). Recently I picked up the DVD (region 0) and I just like this film for unknown reasons really. Chip Meyer plays an astronaut who comes back to earth only to discover he just missed out on world war III. It starts in flashback style and alot will find this film a total bore (specially the second half) but if you like end of the war films, you should see this film. It's the narration perhaps (the actors don't really talk, just narrate their thoughts to us), is it the cheesy score? Is it the cool cover art that appealed to me? Maybe it's because I love films about the end of the world. Check out Damnation Alley, City Limits for more post-apocalyptic low-budget mayem.
