Plot[edit]

The film is set in New America in the year 2097, two decades after a nuclear apocalypse. Tex Kennedy, the (fictional) last survivor of the Kennedy family, two robotic ex-secret service agents, and a female cannibal journey to find the "Threshold of Hell" to gain access to a radio tower to unite the survivors of the apocalypse.[1]

Production and release[edit]

The movie premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 23, 2006 and then toured the country screening at various film festivals. The movie was picked up by National Lampoon for a theatrical release in October 2007.[citation needed]

Critical reaction[edit]

Rotten Tomatoes records an aggregate rating of 60% from 5 reviews.[2] Village Voice found it "self-impressed film", and considered it an over-deliberate attempt to create a cult film, which failed, "funnier on paper than in reality", making a negative comparison to the Mad Max franchise.[3]
