The far far future (meaning 1998): Civilisation was pretty much wiped
out by World War III, and humankind is now reduced to small groups of
nomads seeking food and shelter from the acid rain.
One such group - blonde Bianca (Linnea Quigley), her hunky boyfriend
Butch (Ken Abraham), science nerd Jesse (Michael Aranda) (who of course
wears glasses), Kate (Kim McKamy) and their leader Jake (Richard
L.Hawkins) - finds the secret entrance to a science lab, which is a
perfect cover from the rain and where there is enough food and water for
them to last for weeks ... however, the former inhabitatns seem to have
left in a hurry, and eventually our heroes even find a few severed heads -
ouch. Still, they decide to put up camp here ... but what do you know,
there is a monster - actually a being created in the lab that reproduces
its own amino acid, whatever that might have to do with the plot - living
in the air shafts who kills them one by one, and who isn't killed by the
monster is killed by giant killer rats, who live int he lab as well.
In the end, our little group is reduced to Jake, who finally manages to
shoot the monster with his raygun (of course he has a raygun, this is the
future, remember) ... but in dieing, the monster gives birth to a baby
monster which is just as lethal as its mother.
Ultimately though, Jake manages to strangle the baby with its own
umbilical cord. Then he leaves.
The end ... but wait, the baby opens its eyes again ...
Typical 1980's B-sci-fi-horror, a cheapo and crudely made Alien rip-off
with some ridiculous effects (especially the giant rats were a hoot) and a
story that totally lacks excitement and suspense and amounts to nothing
more than showing some gratuitious sex and gore - without even trying to
be anything special.
So yes, it's a rather bad film, but if you like the cheap'n'cheesy
charm of 1980's sci-fi-trash you will probably at least be entertained !
I love the title though ...
