Storyline

It's the post-apocalypse, and the world has been changed by "the accident", a chemical warfare experiment gone awry. At an isolated subterranean complex, a group of people survived because they were able to get the antidote for the illness. They rescue a surface survivor from the gargoyles, who unfortunately had time to impregnate her, and when the "baby" is born and escapes into the ventilation ducts, they begin experiencing an attrition problem.

Getting Pregnant in the Future is Dangerous
5 October 2012 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

It is the post-apocalyptic age, and the world has been changed by "the accident," a chemical warfare experiment gone awry...

Why is George Kennedy in this? As the only "name" actor, did he lend some sort of publicity to this film? Or was he just that washed up that he had to start doing cheesy horror and science fiction flicks? This could hardly be called the highlight of his career.

Lots of horror films exist about a post-apocalyptic future (though today they all seem to have zombies) and lots of horror films exist about a strange pregnancy. Not many combine the two themes. This one does. Now, you could say it is a science fiction film more than a horror film (and you could make a good argument). You may even argue that this is heavily influenced by "Alien". On that, you would have to argue a little more (but maybe not a lot, as they even name-drop the film).

Overall, an okay picture... some really cheesy effects at times (the pregnant belly looks pretty bad), but maybe you like cheese. I like cheese. Heck, I live in Wisconsin -- half my diet is cheese.
