17 year old high school outcast Josh searching for his missing girlfriend Sam in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California. He is joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12 year old, Angelica, and Josh's former high school bully, Wesley, now turned pacifist samurai. Josh and the group tries to stay alive amidst the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.

People can't have fun anymore
25 October 2019 | by lostwitchzSee all my reviews

Immediately, you're thrusted into a Ferris Bueller world mixed with a Mad Mad & The Warriors. I am seeing a lot of people turning it off after a few minutes, throwing politics or judging based off their personal beliefs. Not giving this show a chance, because something triggered them.

The show follows Josh Wheeler, a newly transferred student who finds love and when the apocalypse hits, Josh is on the trail to find his love. A bunch of former students, are also on his tail and have now cliques up once again in a gangland scenario to survive and find Josh Wheeler.

The films pulls tons of homages to films like (previously said) Ferris Bueller, Mad Max, The Warriors & subtle quotes and shots to Goodfellas, Kill Bill & more! With violence and language that could be seen in a Deadpool flick, it's a fun absurd black comedy that is fun to loose yourself in.

Put your must be an A+, HARD hitting stories and twists to the side. Drop your political views and whatever issues you have with today's problems, realizes it's an absurd fiction that centers on an almost Zombie like show & have some fun. Because "life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." Or in Josh's case "it will eat you."
