Cast:Bruce Campbell, Angus Scrimm, Marta Alicia
I was sent this film a while back and the title didn't ring a bell, but the actors, Bruce Campbell and Angus Scrimm did. I didn't know they were in it and I figured since they were that it would be good. Well, I guess not even cool actors can save a movie, because I found it to be rather bland. Some people may also know this movie as Brainslasher.
The flick started out pretty weird, showing a girl and her mother hooked up to this computer system that sends virtual reality images into their brain. The girl gets fed up and wants to do something different, so the main guy behind the virtual reality gives her wish to be set free into the real world, but she soon discovers that the world has turned into a wasteland because of a war.
This movie is basically a rip-off of the Omega Man and Road Warrior. The only thing I really liked about this film was Bruce Campbell's character, as the "road warrior" type of character; surviving in the wasteland alone fighting off deformed cannibalistic human beings. We don't get to see Angus Scrimm's character until later on in the film. He turns out to be the main bad guy. Cool to see the two horror icons in the movie. You all may remember Angus as the TALL MAN from the Phantasm films.
Well anyway, the movie had a good amount of blood and gore. The effects were cheesy but affective. My complaint is the lack of originality and the fact that it seemed like they could have done so much more for the plot. Would have given a lower-rating, but I liked the beginning and Bruce's character to consider this an "okay" movie.
It was sweet to see two horror icons in one movie, but it's just too bad the story-line wasn't good enough. There was a nice amount of gore, but not enough action.
