Storyline

Bunker 6 is a 78-minute dramatic science fiction thriller filmed on location in the Debert Diefenbunker, Nova Scotia. Grace has called the nuclear fall out shelter #6 her home since the atomic bombs went off 10 years ago. When her mentor and father figure Lewis, the bunker's technician, dies she's left to take charge. As things begin to breakdown around her and murders start to happen she must struggle not just to survive, but to live. For Grace thoughts of the outside world beyond the heavy blast doors of the bunker could be her demise and to all those who remain with her. Written by Anonymous

As much a Gothic horror as a sci-fi drama - excellent!
27 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bunker 6 is a brilliant Canadian low-budget (about £70,000) movie set in an alternate future. Shot in an actual nuclear fallout shelter in Nova Scotia, it tells the story of a small group of people living below ground after a nuclear strike in 1962 (the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the cold war threatened to go hot). Although billed as science fiction, in many ways it is closer to a Gothic horror where the nuclear bunker substitutes for the country house.

The central character is Grace, who – in 1962 – is still a young girl living with her parents. Her father is a senior military figure, so when the bomb goes off they are all piling into the shelter. However, Grace's parents get caught in the blast before they can get through the entrance door. Several years later, Grace survives below ground with two men and two women, led by ruthless young Alice. Communications with the outside world and other bunkers have been lost. However, no one can leave until the red light above the strong metal door turns green. Grace regularly monitors the colour of this light. She also has engineering responsibilities, ensuring the the power keeps running in their subterranean prison.

But the problems of engineering are nothing compared to the challenge of simply staying sane, and we learn that an earlier inhabitant went crazy, killing his wife and then himself. Then, when one of their number is found dead the struggle for survival becomes even more intense. Should they remain in the bunker or should they risk going back into the outside world? However, if the external environment is still deadly then opening the blast doors will kill all of them, and so Alice will not allow anybody to leave.

There are assured performances from all concerned, especially Andrea Lee Norwood. I thought the initial set-up – Grace as a child and the beginning of war – was a little rushed, but beyond this Greg Jackson's script and direction builds the tension effectively. The use of a real nuclear bunker gives the whole thing a genuinely claustrophobic atmosphere.
