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.

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.

I'm going to start this review with a review of the first three reviews in this list. The folks who wrote them are full of merde and they are trying to mislead you, my dear peoples. I suspect the folks who wrote them were either involved in the production or viewed the movie under the influence of a substance that makes bad movies seem wonderful. Ignore the positive reviews here because this movie AWFUL. BAD. Don't be mislead, and don't waste your time.

Pointless script, and horrible, confusing editing. It's like watching grass grow if watching grass grow made no sense. Awful, stilted high school drama department dialogue, incomplete backstory, and a plot that only made sense the mind of the director, and maybe the screenwriter (I don't think the let the editor in on the joke)? There are some decent performances here from some good actors, which is a real shame. Capable acting makes no difference if the script is a total turd, and wow is this script a turd. The plot leaves you scratching your head trying to figure out what you missed, but then you realize that you didn't miss anything; the movie just doesn't make a lot of sense. Unfortunately, it's not the kind of bad that makes you laugh out loud, like "The Room" or "Birdemic" both of which have value as comedy unintentional though it may be. It's the kind of bad that makes you want to do anything but watch the movie before you. It's a mess.

Skip this one folks.
