I'm obsessed with Post-Nuke Movies
19 September 1999 | by Pete-215See all my reviews

This movie wasn't that bad. When I was a little kid I rented it and it always seemed eerie to me. If your bored one day just rent it, who cares if its totaly low-budget. It's fun to watch because I wish I could make a movie that like someday. Hey if your bored also rent "DEFCON4" Thanks.
