    It was raining 2 inches per hour as I came out from Boston this evening. I needed a boat as some cars as some cars stalled in the flashfloods. My suburban is close enough so I plowed right through.

    2011 ‧ Science fiction film/Drama film ‧ 2h 2m

    5.8/10 IMDb 25% Rotten Tomatoes 28% Metacritic



    Gritty drama with Lauren German (Hostel: Part II).

    A devastating nuclear attack thrusts nine strangers together in the bunker-like basement of their New York apartment building.

    The survivors are trapped underground with no hope of rescue, and only horror on the other side of the door.

    As supplies dwindle and tempers flare, they become increasingly unhinged by the close quarters and hopelessness of their situation, and turn on one another.

    Still, one survivor holds on to a thin chance for escape, even though salvation is unlikely.

    Budget: 3 million USD

    When a series of unexplained murders occurs in the normally quiet town of Tarker's Mill, the residents decide to hunt down the killer.

    However, many of these vigilantes end up dead, and those who don't are no closer to finding an assailant.

    But, when a young wheelchair-using boy named Marty (Corey Haim) encounters a werewolf one night, the pieces begin to come together.

    Along with his sister and Uncle Red (Gary Busey), Marty begins a mission to capture the werewolf once and for all.
