A closer look at Xavier Gens’ new film
Xavier Gens’ post-apocalyptic thriller opens in theaters unrated on January 13. Lauren German, Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Eklund, Rosanna Arquette and Courtney B. Vance star.
Synopsis: In this graphic and violent thriller, nine strangersâall tenants of a New York high rise apartmentâescape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the buildingâs 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 becomes more 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.
