Storyline

The year 2011. The world is torn apart by war, violence and other misery. The Nuke has been dropped and the world is a desolate place where chaos and anarchy rules. A grown man with the mind of a child lived all those years locked securely in a bunker and when an automatic time slot suddenly opens he is coming into a world where he knows nothing about. "The Afterman" is soon confronted with violent and perverse survivors. He is, together with an anxious wife, locked up at a local slave driver. However, they can both escape, and slowly but surely, something beautiful blossoms between the two. But is there room for love and happiness (read: sex) in this savage new world? This film is a cult-movie with no dialogue.

Post-apocalyptic sleaze.
16 October 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"The Afterman" is about a guy who lived alone in an atomic fallout shelter after the A-Bomb was dropped,so he can't read,write or speak.20 years later the shelter opens and he wanders into a barbaric world full of sex and depravity.The film is done completely without dialogue and it offers some wall-to-wall sleaze including graphic nudity,homosexual rape and forced blow-job.There is not enough survival for my liking,though.But if you are into European sleaze with plenty of depravity give this oddity a look.When I was watching Rob Van Eyck's "The Afterman" I immediately came to conclusion that this film was influenced by highly controversial "Vase de Noces" from 1974.8 out of 10.
