Editorial Reviews

In the wake of the end of the world, a family of four desperately tries to survive. Their goal: escaping the city and traveling to the rural community they once called home. As the constant threat of a violent death forces them to stay as far away from civilization as possible, they take to the forest, only to discover the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries.

As far as entertainment is concerend it was and interesting take on what could happen, but also very dark in content. I prefer movies where at least the good guy looks toward a future at the end of the movie. I did not feel that the story heald out any hope for the furture but was the view of the writer and director who wanted to impose their personal take of whatit would be like with out looking at the big picture. As far as syfy is concerend it could fit in the Horror genra. If you like to see lots of killing and want a sense of hopless ness then this is your movie.

This was a well made low budget film that I didn't like. Civilization has suddenly collapsed for some unexplained reason as people distrust and kill each other ("Yellow Brick Road"). A family of four decide to leave the city for Dover's Bend, their old home town. That is pretty much it.

Along the way they encounter other people and a hear weird noises and feel spooked out. The mystery, which you may not realize there is one, is solved at the end.

The acting was decent for a low budget. The writing and direction were also better than normal, it just that there wasn't anything there to enjoy. They didn't build character well. The "twist" was not unexpected. For seasoned film watchers this is a let down. People who don't watch a lot of horror films might find some enjoyment in it.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

I was left with asking to the very end, what caused things to collapse? After the first 5 minutes I wanted to shoot the wife myself. The family definitely came off in the beginning of the movie as typical big city liberal-leaning family that has lost everything and is waiting for the government or an NGO to save them. Later in the movie the father turns out to be an experienced woodsman, born in the backwoods. But he didn't own a firearm? I looked at this movie as an idea of what would happen to sheeple if TEOTWAWKI would happen. As for the story I am still wondering what it actually was. The whole thing seemed like it was made as a trailer for a bigger movie.

Format: DVD
This is an American independent, end of the world, psychological type horror. It is based around a family of four, they are in the big city and an `event' has happened that seems to make everyone uber violent. They know their only hope is to get away and head out of town to find the other son. The father Scott Weaver (John Fantasia) leads his wife, daughter and son away from the pestilent city and head off in a stolen car to the comparative safety of the country-side.

But you know they are going to encounter other `humans' at some point and things are never going to go well. This features lots of camera angles with weird breathing which is there to evoke fear in the viewer and to make us think that bad things are going to happen. Whilst the father does have graphic night mares in the build up to `the twist', it is unlikely that the on screen antics will have the same effect on you.

The acting is not Academy nominee grade, but there are some convincing performances. We have the usual stupid decisions that happen in all films of this genre, the sort that nearly always lead to a demise of the miscreant or increased tension. This does work in part, and the family become more begrimed as they get further away from civilisation, which is a nice nod to realism.

Overall though this is not that entertaining, it drags in the middle and the action is sporadic at best, the saving grace is the kick in the tail and that was actually the only thing that pulled this back from a lower rating than I have awarded. If you like all things `horror', then this will never be on your `A' list, but you still may want to see, if you only want a quality fright-fest, then best to not bother.

I caught this on free Streaming. Bad. Awful. Boring. Talentless. It's truly a New Rock Bottom Low in zero-budget, "let's-shoot-this-with-my-friends-at-Grandma's-farm-next-weekend" awful.

My 12 year old nephew guessed the hackneyed, overused plot 'ending twist' about 10 minutes in. You will too.
So for anyone under around age 9, here's the Spoiler Alert: Dad is insane and just hallucinated everything. All of the scenes in the movie never happened as you saw them, Dad murdered his family plus everybody else, then has instant amnesia, and in the last two minutes of the film he remembers in a series of flashbacks, feels just terrible about it all, puts a bullet through his brain, and The End.

To get to that ending ' flashback twist' you have to watch a really lame cast struggle with probably the worst script ever written.
Not bad like Plan 9, Ed Woods-bad. Bad like an untalented kid with a camera just throwing together 80 minutes of garbage the absolute cheapest way he can think of so he has something to sell to DVD/cable, then cashes out and runs.

So this 'city family of 4' is homeless and on the run from some terrible, really awful TEOTWAWKI apocalypse that the director never even bothers to name. So no details, no backstory, no nothing. For the first few minutes you think he's trying to be mysterious about setting up a 'big reveal'. Then the Big Reveal never happens, the film is over, and you realize the director just didn't care enough even to specify the nature of The Big Bad Thing We're All Running From.
Some reviewer praised him for not including zombies. Heck no--zombies would have cost money.
