World War III's nuclear strikes on the U.S. have set the
nation back 200 years. Money holds no worth, food is impossible to find,
and hope is all but lost when every survivor of the war is infected by a
fatal nuclear plague.
Deadland is a post-apocalyptic tale of an
ordinary man, Sean Kalos, driven on only one purpose: to find his missing
wife in the new United Provinces. What was designed to be the new rebirth
has become martial-law, and the Officers of the Province wield their power
with cruelty. When Sean crosses them, he finds himself in the middle of a
personal war, and his search for his wife dominoes into what could be the
revolution the survivors have been waiting for.
Not a zombie flick as the title might suggest, but an
old-fashioned post-apocalyptic flick in the
Mad Max / Postman /
Jericho vein. We kind of dug
them: reminds us of cheap video evenings during the ‘Eighties . . .
(By the way, after World War III there will cruelty,
barbarism and violence, sure – but just imagine what a breeze your morning
commute will be!)
