Surprisingly good post-nuke drama (6 - 10)
19 February 2007 | by andybob-3See all my reviews

A husband and wife along with their son and another couple find themselves stuck in a rather sophisticated underground bomb shelter after a nuclear war, with there only contact with the outside world being a somewhat temperamental short-wave radio. But an affair between the son and the wife of their friend, along with boredom, drug abuse and diminishing supplies cause tempers to flare and things slowly descend in to desperation.

Although very low budget and almost entirely taking place in the shelter, this film struck me as oddly affective and kept me involved all the way through. 6 out of 10, relatively well written with the characters being for the most part interesting and well acted.
