Great moment of cinema history at 1:18:21,smashes a window to shoot through when surrounded by broken windows, classic. This movie had me from the wobbly spacecraft, and its use of egg boxes and toilet tubes. I really enjoyed this movie.
I love 70s and 80s post apocalyptic movies. This was awesome on a cold, foggy Saturday afternoon in bed. Major props to Sid Haig (RIP). He played Cutter. I love all of his movies and never heard of this one. Thanks for the upload!
This is one of those rare low budget gems that goes over the heads of Simple Minds. I think many people are disappointed by the storyline because it is so close to how things really go in the real world. Overall the aftermath calls us to question our Humanity through our integrity and sense of Duty.
Vintage movie. Must admit loved it. Good triumphs over evil every time. Very sad . Butter Cutter and all his baddies got there just rewards.
I love Steve Barkett movies. I like the retro effects. My favorite is Empire of The Dark.
Wow! Impressive low-budget wonder. Kids gettin’ wasted, spaceships, psycho warlords, cool apocalyptic cityscapes, Mutant brigands. And a Chuck Norris-type astronaut. Skillfully made!
