A small but hardy band of survivors traverses a post-apocalypse American landscape in this sci-fi thriller. A horrific nuclear assault leaves only three survivors at an underground military facility, so Tanner (Jan-Michael Vincent), Denton (George Peppard), and Keegan (Paul Winfield) commandeer a special all-terrain land cruiser and head for Albany, NY, the only American city to be spared in the attack. As they travel through the desolate post-nuke wastelands, the soldiers pick up a beautiful woman (Dominique Sanda) and an incorrigible teenager (Jackie Earle Haley), as they battle huge mutant insects, packs of survivors turned violent and feral, and brutal electrical storms that savage the already barren plains. Damnation Alley was based on a novel by award-winning speculative fiction author Roger Zelazny. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
A real blast from the past, but tame by to days movie standards. It is one of those post apocalyptic tales that is more wierd than anything else. Man eating bugs, freakish storms, and the like make you question exactly what people thought nuclear armegeddon would be like. The acting is okay at best and the script leaves a lot to be desired but the movie might mildly entertain you. But don't expect to be blown away with action or drama because it just isn't there in this flick.
