Goofs

Crazed cannibals or not, the people in the remote site were still human beings with human weaknesses. Being shot in the torso with a .30 rifle round would seriously injure or kill them, regardless of how "psyched up" that they were. See more »

A very solid movie
22 October 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to find how low grade this film received, since I found it be very good actually. With a low budget of what it had to deal with it turned out very good.

It deals with post apocalyptic colony underground while it is constantly snowing outside. It is showing very well how people turn into animals in self defense. We had a similar situation in Sarajevo in 1992-1995. When society fails, community is either doomed or it receives help from outside. Since in this film there was no help from outside even the remnants of the civilization left in the colony were attacked by a gang of cannibals.

If you like sci fi post apocalyptic films this one is for you.
