This Canadian/New Zealand indie film was a lot of fun. Featuring the iconic Michael Ironside, doing what he does best.   A movie that was written and filmed to seem as if it were shot in the 80’s and set in post apocalyptic late 1997. What a great concept! For the most part, really well done. Would have been better had they stuck to all practical effects. Though I did enjoy the “sploosh” when The Kid used the glove. Apple is an awesome character. “This is my Gnome Stick!”

This is totally worth watching, especially if you’re a fan of cheesy 80’s flicks.  It’s currently available on Amazon.
