Story


In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers--all tenants of a New York high rise apartment--escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building's bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomesmore depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film ultimately resembles a parody of depravity rather than a harrowing depiction of such behavior..”
by William Goss [Film.com]
“..offers audiences is the not-terribly-edifying, stagnant experience of being locked in a basement with a pack of assholes..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..the only possible relief from director Xavier Gens’ abusively bleak survivalist scenario is how implausible it is..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
