Searching for a happy ending to a tale of unimaginable disaster and horror, nine strangers find themselves holed up together in a farmhouse cellar in rural Texas. The United States has hastily become embroiled in World War 3. A young doctor named Hunter survives the nuclear attack and is thrown together by happenstance with a group of wounded and frightened victims, including Elizabeth, a strong-willed confidant to Hunter, Brad - an antagonistic redneck jackass, and Jennifer, a barely coherent young woman suffering from severe post-traumatic stress. Together, they attempt to endure the devastating holocaust as they struggle with claustrophobia and conflicting personalities. In a makeshift shelter, Hunter and his dying companions wait for news from the government while fending off hunger, radiation sickness, and a horde of frightened and dying refugees. Written by
It is a kind of film like 'The Road(2009)'; poetic, rich with visuals, emotionally well-balanced and sustains on human emotions rather than mere thrills. It is one of the best post-apocalyptic thrillers of the decade, yet very underrated. This film is a feast for the lovers of quality thrillers.
Background score is unique and performances are top-notch. Set and costume design are very authentic. Cinematography is fine. Overall mood created by director Peter Engertis is artistic and beautiful yet fearsome. Quality of the fear fused with human emotions and helplessness is very depressing and dark.
