  • Hi Cecil!

    This movie definitely has a MST3K charm to it, and that lead actor is kind of hot. I actually remembered him from Devil Fish on MST3K, I saw it back in November 2011.

    Great review, as always! Looking forward to #99 and #100 – they are gonna be HUGE! 🙂

    • Cecil:

      Howdy 🙂

      If MST3K would have been able to continue, this would have most likely been an episode. It’s not that it is a bad movie, it is just so full of material to goof on.

      Thanks! I’m looking forward to getting #99 and #100 finished, they are wearing me out!

  • Cristiona:

    Hm. I don’t know if this title is long enough for my taste.

    I’m somewhat amused that the sterility aspect means that I can claim that Children of Men ripped off this piece of 80’s cheese! Which, now that I’ve watched the rest of the video, I can see you already made this joke. Bah! Still, it’s really amusing to think that such a highly regarded film would crib from schlock like this. Now we can pretend to be snobs! “I liked Children of Men the first time I saw it. When it was called 2019 After the Fall of New York!”

    I also have to wonder if the main character’s name is supposed to be a take on Percival, one of the Authorian knights.

    All that aside, I have to agree with Allison, this looks like some truly classic cheese.

    • Cecil:

      Perhaps we could add a “The Beginning” and “3D” on there to lengthen it a bit. 😛

      There are far too many parallels for it to be mere coincidence. I agree, it is funny to think that such a highly regarded, award winning feature borrowed from a Franco-Italian knock off.

      There has to be something meaningful with the name of Parsival, it is too weird to be random.

      Oh, it is cheese. If you have an afternoon to kill this is the perfect filler. High entertainment!

      • Oh, this film is prime for 3D doctoring. Especially that laser effect, I’d probably scream with delight over that. Of course, I’m still holding out hope of a Stargate movie or something Stargate that has 3D in it…only because I’m a nerd that needs the feeling of a wormhole practically hitting me in the face. I would love that laser to practically hit me in the face.

    • Haha, glad someone agrees with me. And classic cheese is the best kind of cheese, and all the satisfaction without the calories!

    Just found your site today and already seen a bunch of reviews. I really like your style and film choices. when it comes to movies like this, I live for this stuff. I love giallo so it was only a matter of time until i found other types of italian cinema. there is a ton of zombie, post apocalypse, western and low fantasy stuff.

    This movie kicks ass because essentially it is the retarded relative of escape from new york, hell comes to frogtown, mad max and planet of the apes. I’m happy to see you mentioned other films in this style like bronx warriors.

    I hope you do more of these italian knock off movie reviews in the future since it is kind of hard to find other fans and good sources for this kind of stuff. Luckily, in sweden where I’m from we have two great movie distributors of old euro horror and schlock like this so I own a good deal of this stuff on dvd!

    • Cecil:

      Thanks! Glad you found it.

      I’m a big fan of Italian knock off cinema, as you can see. Sure, its low budget but they did at least try to do some cool things. Since I’m also a big fan of post-apocalyptic stuff, the Italian market really took that one and ran with it. They have so many that have made their way into my collection.

      I have a few lined up for next year. Not sure which ones I’ll go with first but keep an eye out for 1990 Bronx Warriors.

    Okay, since I’ve been lighting up your comments section all day (you have absolutely taken over my day off, buddy…and I’m thankful for it), I need to ask if you’ve seen Rats! Night of Terror? It is, without a doubt, my favorite WTF Italian Post-Apocalypse film. For being such a cheesy piece of crap it has a great, startling ending, some wonderful gore, and so many things that will put you on the floor laughing. Without giving it all away, I will merely say CONVEYOR BELT OF RATS. It is a must see.

    • Cecil:

      hehehe, awesome 🙂

      Ah Rats, another classic Bruno Mattei film…I know it well. I have every intention of doing that at some point.

      • Steve:

        Please, please, do. I saw it in 1988 one afternoon when there was nothing to do but go to the little mom-n-pop video store down the road to see what they had. I had just gotten to my first duty station in the military and what I found was a semi-decent rack of badness. The cover of Rats! screamed at me, and I took it back to my new place, hooked up my vcr and sat back. It was awful, and yet wonderful at the same time. From the ridiculous explanatory crawl to the actually disturbing ending. (Why does the ending disturb me? I have no idea, but it somehow just works for me.) If you’re ever in the Dallas area, we should have a cup of coffee, but I am definitely a huge fan of your work.
