Back off, just back off. Your breath smells like the runs, Miles. It's irritating my nose and wrinkling my suit.

The Japanese laserdisc is an alternate cut of the film in many ways. Being 10 minutes longer, the film focuses less on finding their fathers (while having an adventure) but more on the adventure itself and finding women. With more narrations by Phillip, this is more of an adventure-noir film. The film has many different and alternate scenes including the death of Rusty, the removal of the sewer monster, less of the Disco Punks and alternate ending. See more »
This fulfills the criterias to be a cult classic, something to love OR hate for everyone. I belong to the first category: 2 kids growing up in a nuke shelter with a large collection of detective novels deciding to be the post apocalyptic worlds first dicks, The Atomic Dicks! Fastpaced wachy post apocalyptic tong-in-the-cheek comedy. Irresistible. B-movie queen Lisa Blount pops up in this weird mix and singer Sue Saad gives a few nice songs like the excellent title song "Radioactive Dreams", the soundtrack certainly deserves to be released. Great acting, excellent photography and score. It is very low budgeted, but every last penny is up there on the screen and stretched well beyond its limit, just as it was the case with director Albert Pyun's "The Sword And the Sorcerer". This movie stands up to repeated viewing. 7/10
