Storyline

In the nuclear ravaged wasteland of Earth 2087 water is as precious as life itself. The isolated Lost Wells outpost survived the holocaust and the inhabitants guard the source of their existence. Now an evil cult of renegades want control of their valuable water supply. And the villagers are no match for such brute military force. Only one man can help the stricken community - a mercenary living in a distant cannibal city. But even he, and his strange henchmen, may not be able to survive in the world gone wild.

Trivia

The original version implied that the dangerous cult based itself on one of the few books remaining after the holocaust: L. Ron Hubbard's "Dianetics." Lawyers for Scientology got wind of this and threatened to sue Apollo Pictures, who removed all references to Hubbard and Dianetics. See more »

Goofs

Ethan says, "We have Hydrogen dioxide," meaning water. But water is known as dihydrogen oxide or dihydrogen monoxide. Hydrogen Dioxide would be HO2, which cannot exist. See more »

Quotes

Quite Possibly The Worst Waste of Film EVER
6 March 2014 | by sslowderSee all my reviews

This is a 1980's Mad Max rip-off, with bad acting, cheesy writing, inane violence and a transparent plot. The "name" actors in the film must have been forced to do this film as some sort of contract fulfillment or, if not, they needed to fire their agents (and probably did after filming this dreck). Don't waste your time and, for heaven sake, definitely don't fork over any money to see this drivel.

It was SO bad that I considered that maybe the viewer needed to be stoned in order to appreciate it but I decided that even stoned this flick is garbage. The film makers should be stoned ... and I mean with boulders!

Wish I could have the time back I put into watching it.
