Storyline

Black marketers loot an abandoned Soviet bio-weapons lab in Siberia, releasing a weaponized strain of Small Pox which quickly turns into a global pandemic. The remaining 2%, who survive the 98% mortality rate suffer varying degrees of blindness, physical deformation, sterility and madness. Without any food source coming into the cities, what food stocks have not already been looted have been hoarded. With starvation threatening the plague survivors, they turn to cannibalism, preying upon each other. The unscarred Lionel Verney, by default, becomes the strongest man standing, competing for his existence against entire clans of diseased survivors among the ruins of what once was the 21st century. Written by Anonymous

You have got to be kidding me.
5 January 2009 | by ronaldprinceSee all my reviews

Why would someone make such a horrid movie with $7,500? It was so bad. I laughed so hard. Truly, it has to be up there with the worst movie I have ever watched. None of the actors - Gee, if you could even call them that - had taken lessons. Imagine watching the worst possible high school play...unrehearsed. Then throw in some special-effects that South Park would laugh at. Just a riot. I will not spoil the movie, but please, why must we hear traffic going by in a city that is supposed to be free of all traffic? If this guy plans on making more films like this the public needs to be warned. Seven months of weekends isn't much time for preparing, granted. Do any of these actors plan on making careers - no - they didn't have to quit their day jobs (thank Goodness). I saw several of the same people get killed many many times over. I must say that the obscenities were at a very minimum. There was one brief nude/slashing scene. Lots of gratuitous overkill - and I mean OVERKILL....gun scenes that seemed to go on forever..kinda like a broken record. I think the actors/actresses did their own make-up and stunts.
