Directed by Jack Smight. With Jan-Michael Vincent, George Peppard, Dominique Sanda, Paul Winfield. In a post-apocalyptic world, a group of survivors travel and find other settlements in huge custom designed all terrain vehicles.
I saw the story for this advertised in the back of some recent post apocalyptic magazine or book I read and figured it sounded cool. While it does sound cool, it unfortunately feels more like a 50’s science fiction film with large insects and scorpions as the primary motivators of action. The ending is very much to write home about either, felt like they just ran out of money and said “oh hey, they made it there, freeze frame, movie’s done!”.
