"The Day After" in a sealed bunker.

I thought this was an excellent psychological thriller. It was scary at times, but not as scary as a top horror movie. The way people react in a hopeless situation was scary. A survival of the fittest. The dominant individuals taking the reins. The weaker individuals crawling in a submissive position so that they see a chance to survive. Arquette played this behavior properly in this film. Beyond that, her contribution is simply nil. Formerly her joining a movie was a guarantee for some functionally nice nudity. In this movie she was usually strategically covered and so there remains, besides a few hysterical mood-swings, in terms of performances not much left.
It wasn't exactly a SF either. Although the so-called North Koreans with futuristic bio-suits gave it a SF touch. The only …

For a movie about what is a human being when deprived of everything, it was quite disappointing and irritating. All the characters in the movie except Eva, Adrien and Devlin were so unlikable from the very beginning, that to imagine such a group being together in any other occasion is laughable. But yes, that was the point, to see how would so random individuals behave with each other under extreme circumstances. But no, they weren't a group to begin with - no real discussion, no real cooperation, no real care for the others, no real effort to solve any issue they had -- just a bunch of whining and/or spoiled selfish brats you wouldn't socialize with in the normal life. I'll put aside unsolved mysteries happening outside the shelter, because the focus of the film was anyway on the people …
