Goofs

In the beginning of the movie a wind turbine is seen with wings having their trailing edge into the wind instead of its leading edge. The wings are either constructed for counter-clockwise rotation (in the movie the turbine rotates clockwise) or are pitched around 180 degrees. Either way, the turning of the turbine is impossible with this blade configuration. See more »

User Reviews

 
A very solid movie
22 October 2013 | by petarmaticSee all my reviews

SPOILER: I was surprised to find how low grade this film received, since I found it be very good actually. With a low budget of what it had to deal with it turned out very good.

It deals with post apocalyptic colony underground while it is constantly snowing outside. It is showing very well how people turn into animals in self defense. We had a similar situation in Sarajevo in 1992-1995. When society fails, community is either doomed or it receives help from outside. Since in this film there was no help from outside even the remnants of the civilization left in the colony were attacked by a gang of cannibals.

If you like sci fi post apocalyptic films this one is for you.
