Searching for a happy ending to a tale of unimaginable disaster and horror, nine strangers find themselves holed up together in a farmhouse cellar in rural Texas. The United States has hastily become embroiled in World War 3. A young doctor named Hunter survives the nuclear attack and is thrown together by happenstance with a group of wounded and frightened victims, including Elizabeth, a strong-willed confidant to Hunter, Brad - an antagonistic redneck jackass, and Jennifer, a barely coherent young woman suffering from severe post-traumatic stress. Together, they attempt to endure the devastating holocaust as they struggle with claustrophobia and conflicting personalities. In a makeshift shelter, Hunter and his dying companions wait for news from the government while fending off hunger, radiation sickness, and a horde of frightened and dying refugees.Written by

The only winning move is not to play...
"Aftermath" cannot really stand up to films like The Day After or Threads, nor books like Alas Babylon or On The Beach or One Minute After, but it does alright. The movie's success is to serve as a warning to avoid nuclear war. I wasn't going to comment until I saw a 1/10 review grumping about smoking around a pregnant woman; was the commenter oblivious to the ionizing radiation permeating the countryside? If it ever comes to this, pray you go out in a blazing flash. Misery awaits those who survive the initial exchange. 6/10
