Everything that could go wrong did go wrong: War, Terrorism, Natural Disasters. Evacuees were ushered from the cities to refugee camps in the surrounding counties. In-fighting, famine and disease took their toll on the survivors. Now, twenty years after the bombs fell and the plagues ran their course the few that remain live in fear and without hope. Azura Skye stars as Sarah in this Post-Apocalyptic Fairy Tale about a young woman's journey to deliver the first child born in 15 Years. Sarah's refusal to give up is inspired by a lone voice on her radio. Michael broadcasts dim and distant messages of hope mixed with the music he scavenges from the dead. Forced from her basement home by drought and relentlessly pursued by those who want her baby, Sarah crosses paths with Michael in a cavernous, underground refuge of disparate survivors. It is from Three Caves that Michael and Sarah will embark on a journey beyond the boundaries of the Southern Corridor and into the unknown future. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


The movie was primarily shot at Three Caves, an abandoned quarry, in Huntsville, Alabama. Also in North Alabama, is Cathedral Caverns, where the 1984 Timothy Bottoms movie "What Waits Below" was filmed. Bill Schweikert was a grip on "What Waits Below" and was back as cinematographer for "Moles". See more »


[first lines]
Michael: It is not enough to know that the world has ended. For there is more to the story. And soon it begins. Chaos drove us from the cities. Fear kept us away. Long after the bombs had fallen, after plagues and famine had run their course, we few that remain line in fear, and without hope. But this is a new place. A new time. Lost. Soon a time will come when we no longer live in caves. Like moles. Like rats.

Run away like hell if you hear this movie is on
12 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

I vote level 1 for this movie for I cannot vote any less. This movie is worse than anything you have ever seen as "movie" This is not a movie, this is a disaster! Not only a waste of time but a great insult to the art of cinema!

I request only one thing from Mr.Torres and his accomplices: PLEASE do not make any movie or any other production in the future. That will be your BEST contribution to the art of cinema and world audiences will like you better if you do not appear in credits at all.

Geez, I cannot believe I had to write a commentary on such a waste but I guess it's my civic duty to warn other cinema fans.
