Editorial Reviews

Twenty years after the bombs fell and the plagues ran their course the few that remain live in fear and without hope...Azura Skye stars as Sarah in this Post-Apocalyptic tale about a young woman's journey to deliver the first child born in 15 Years. Sarah's refusal to give up is inspired by a lone voice on her radio. Michael (Joshua Leonard) broadcasts dim and distant messages of hope mixed with the music he scavenges from the dead. Forced from her basement home by drought and relentlessly pursued by those who want her baby, Sarah crosses paths with Michael in a cavernous, underground refuge of disparate survivors. It is from Three Caves that Michael and Sarah will embark on a journey beyond the boundaries of the Southern Corridor - and into the unknown future.

I was hoping to bank in on the horrid cover and back panel as I picked this guy up off the shelves of my local Blockbuster. However, I discovered after about 45 seconds of viewing that this was not going to be a shlock-fest as I'd hoped. However, it did turn into a wonderfully enchanting independent film about a group of people making sense of themselves and of a world that has fallen to pieces around them. The backgrounds of the main characters are slowly unveiled while their journey pushes them forward, following the only thing they can; the voices they hear over radio waves.

Again, don't be fooled into thinking that 20 YEARS LATER (should be titled Like Moles, Like Rats) or the tag-line of 'AFTER THE BOMBS. AFTER THE PLAGUES. BEFORE THE UNKNOWN' has anything to do with the movie. It's not Planet of the Apes, it's not Soylent Green, it's not I Am Legend, and it's not Children of Men.

Some serious time and love has been put into this film, and it deserves respect.

I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. Azura Skye portrayed her character well & had us empathetic with her struggle to survive & succeed. I found the acting by the doctor to be superb; his character was adoring, yet we were left with a tragic ending for him. The storyline was, nevertheless, excellent, and the directorial debut by Jim Torres was outstanding. This is a well-made, scripted & directed movie for those who care to see a movie with good character development and a story that will be remembered because of the struggles experienced by these characters.

I was surprised this film had such bad ratings on IMDb and rotten tomatoes - I thoroughly enjoyed it. I had no expectations before hand, I was just glad to find a post apocalyptic film that didn't have zombies in it. It reminded me of watching my wife play the Fallout video games.

I would describe this film as a slice of life in an alternative post apocalyptic world. There is some mysticism, which may have alienated viewers. I don't think there is any underlying message about man kind. The characters are entertaining, and it's not overly gruesome. It's low budget, but not in a campy sort of way.

Format: DVD
Bad post-apocalyptic movies and pregnancies are very similar. They're both slow, deliberate, and excruciating. For pregnancy, there are drugs - legal drugs - that can dull the pain, and there are procedures that can speed the process. For horrible movies without a real premise set after a nuclear war, there is no reprieve.

When resources are scarce, with water and food nowhere to be found, it's every man for himself. When Samuel Singleton meets two women squatting in his house - Margaret and Sarah (eight months pregnant) - they decide to take a trip to a spring-fed lake in order to save their lives. Along with a radio host named Michael, they meet up with a colony of survivors living in a system of caves. From there it's a bunch of poorly done hocus-pocus amidst a poor attempt at some sort of pseudo The Road Warrior meets Raising Arizona, as a character similar to Morgana from Excalibur attempts to steal the only baby born in the last 15 years.

It's slow, disjointed, poorly acted, and tediously irritating. The dartboard timing of the soundtrack borders on unnerving, like cats screeching while you're reading. The transitions are abruptly inappropriate, like a cage match breaking out at a kindergarten. The characters have a noxious combination of preposterous acting talent and the ability to elicit angered contempt from the audience.

The plot, characters, and situations are all loosely connected.

Format: DVD
Zillions of logical flaws--people are way too clean, trimmed, and civil. Mostly, they're just too plump--are supplies running low or not? Was there or was there not a nuclear cataclysm so great that it totally destroyed society and blighted agriculture, and if so...?

As the other reviewers have said, "Post-Apocalyptic" nearly requires the adjective "bad". This is even worse than that. In addition to an absolutely nonsensical plot thread (and associated stock caricatures--insane sisters/adopted daughters of "wicked witch")we also have actual fairyland style magic with a psycho-mystic twist courtesy of a cheesy Black "shaman". Imagine Lionel Richie blathering platitudes in Morgan Freeman's very blandest voice.

And for all that, Tara Nevins' rendition of "Stars Fell on Alabama" is worth the rental.

I was expecting a bad horror movie but that's not what this movie is at all. It's ultimately a sweet and hopeful movie about people trying to survive in a world that has been ravaged by war and disease. There are a few plot points that didn't make a lot of sense to me but overall the acting and scenery were spot on. The sets were realistic and the scenery was at moments serenely beautiful and at others desolate and lifeless. I also have to comment on the soundtrack. The music was wonderful. If a CD was available, I would definitely buy it. So, don't let the really bad cover scare you away from a real treat of a movie.
