Apocalypse and the Beauty Queen is a hip, sexy, thriller with a strong protagonist, a horrifying tyrant, and a series of disturbing twist that build into a shocker of an ending. Amber, the main character is a mixture of beauty queen and revolutionary. After being told she was ugly through childhood, her self loathing became confused once she conquered the competitive world of fashion modeling. Being rejected by the same fashion industry that loved her just a few years earlier (she was in her late 20's), she returns to her small rural hometown. Suddenly the world ends, and Amber finds she has the charisma and strength to help rebuild her corner of the world in her own way. Written by Thomas Smugala

Beautifully shot, well-acted
26 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

This gorgeously-shot little movie gives audiences a welcome break from the current trend of gory torture films. Hyndes and Hansen give excellent, multi-layered performances and the script is surprisingly adult and deliberately-paced. No easy answers given. Production Design is also outstanding, giving audiences just enough to establish a post-apocalyptic civilization that we've never seen before. Well done on all counts. Smugala's direction is particularly deft in handling the multiple flashbacks and points of view, as well as juggling each character's motives and motivations. Check this out if you're in the mood for a little more depth. Not for the casual viewer. This is a movie that has to be paid attention to in order to be appreciated.
