A plague has hit, turning most of mankind into homicidal lunatics (a la "28 Days Later"). Evie (Tegan Crowley) is holed up in a shack deep in the Australian country, with about five companions. Evie wants to stay as she believes her husband will find them. The others want to leave, as there is no way Evie's husband could have survived. After some carnage and infighting, Evie stays and her companions go....they won't get far. Miracle...her husband, John (Scott Marcus) arrives. He is a dweeb (wuss). A social science type professor, completely ill-equipped to handle an apocalypse. That is most unfortunate because a real man arrives, Charlie ( Steven Jianai). Yep...John has asthma attacks...Charlie has a truck. John cries...Charlie hunts. John complains...Charlie gets things done.
One small problem...Charlie is a psycho. When John has a near fatal asthma attack, he demands Evie give him sex in exchange for him going to town to look for medicine. Oh yes...don't even ask what Charlie is carrying around in the back of his truck. As Charlie gets more aggressive and rapes Evie, John just whimpers and cries. But wait! There is hope. Jet fighters are seen in the sky...might there be a safe zone? Before that can be realized, Charlie believes Evie is his and figures on getting rid of John. Will John man up and fight for his woman?
I won't spoil the ending, but let us just say that this is a pretty average film until the final five minutes...then...well, you'll see. Whatever the themes of the apocalypse, what we learn from this film is that women do not want wusses in their men. In an age where most men seem to be less than heroic, here comes a warning from an Australian horror film. Kudos to directors Nick Kozakis and Kosta Ouzas for giving us something a little bit different. Available on Netflix.
