A junior minister in the British Government discovers a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device in London. Putting self-preservation first, he flees with a young American political advisor to a re-commissioned Secret Nuclear Underground Bunker - S.N.U.B. They find themselves entombed in the bunker with a disparate group of individuals caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. The terrorist bomb is found, but attempts by bomb disposal experts fail to prevent it exploding, destroying central London and contaminating the surrounding countryside. As a result of the blast a group of dangerous convicts break out from a local high security prison, but are contaminated with radiation and start to mutate. The mutants infiltrate the bunker and one by one the occupants endure a horrible, grisly death. Eventually one of the survivors escapes from the bunker to make contact with the outside world and a rescue helicopter is organised. But inside the S.N.U.B. the mutants are closing in.

There's something to be said for any filmmaker committed enough to put their vision on film. The problem is that sometimes those visions suck. The British have often been able to do a lot with a little, especially in the horror genre. This is not one of those times.
S.N.U.B! does not need the exclamation point. Nothing that happens in this movie requires such punctuation. Really, it's pretty much one big (and tired) cliché. I'll excuse the bad digital special effects...this is a rather low budget film after all. But the poor story building, plot, and practical special effects are just bad. I mean...hell...just plain terrible. Nothing that happens here will be a surprise. Nothing will urge you to keep watching. In fact, even at 1 hour and 14 minutes it still feels too long. I feel bad for everyone whose name appears in the opening credits. After all, if you're going to make a low budget affair, why list everyone's name in the opening as if they would ever appear in anything ever again? Ditch this in favor of much better films from Great Britain. This is just a waste.
