Storyline

After a nuclear attack, seven dwellers of an apartment building seek refugee in a bunker in the basement of the building where the super, Mickey, lives. He rations water and supplies among the group formed by Eva and her boyfriend Sam; the gays Bobby and Josh and his brother Adrien; Marilyn and her daughter Wendi; and Delvin. When five invaders break into their shelter wearing protective clothing and breathing apparatuses, they abduct Wendi but the survivors succeed in killing two of the men. Josh wears the only clothing that was not damaged and discovers a strange research center where he finds Wendi contained in some kind of stasis device along with other children apparently collected by the unknown men in suits. He is discovered and ends up shoots at three men and returns to the shelter. Soon the group learns that the invaders have welded their access door from outside and they are trapped inside the bunker. Marilyn and Sam get crazy and the tense situation and the lack of water ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Human evolution in dire circumstances
9 April 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

After watching this movie I felt compelled to write a review, my first review on IMDb. Let me start by telling you that this movie contains a lot of extreme violence and strong sexual content. However none of it is out of place. Before watching the movie, I read a couple of reviews and most of them describe it as inhuman. But inhuman is the situation in which the protagonists are put. A group of people are stranded in the basement of a building after a nuclear attack on their city. With no hope of escaping the basement and with little supplies, the plot takes a dramatic turn. What must be followed carefully and what most impressed me, is how the characters evolve during the time spent there. In the beginning you are given hints about subconscious ugly traits of the characters, and towards the end you will see those traits taking over and the movie will blow you away. Given this dramatic evolution, the movie is hard to watch at times. However, i don't think it's exaggerated. I often found asking myself what I would have had done and how i would have had reacted. The acting is good. I was impressed by Eklund and Ventimiglia. Arquette and Biehn play their usual B movie roles. German didn't impress me much, but I think it was her character that didn't allow her to impress.

It is definitely not a waste of time.
