    The world is coming to an end. A mysterious drug called Sister Salvation has taken over the country. The drug promises its user the chance to be blasted into the sun to talk to ''God''. A war broke out that resulted in the overthrowing of the Government. During the war the environment was severally damaged to the point if people go out during the day the sun cooks them alive. On top of that a mysterious plague has been killing millions. The last days of humanity will be told through a series of anthology films, each one featuring 3 different stories about a different group of people that will reveal new aspects in the story.

Review:

Before the animated cluster-bomb of everything nightmarish that is Where the Dead Go to Die, Jimmy ScreamerClauz created this nugget of insanity. It's loud, bold, psychedelic but unpleasant, I guess like a bad acid trip would be.

Brandon Slagle delivers a very solid performance as the deeply disturbed ex-lab rat, Ethan. Ethan's mind is not a relaxing place to be after the sinister Government has played around with his psyche and we are witness to some weird and bizarre sights. We are also introduced to the chilling shadow figure known as The Suicide King. This blazing eyed creature demon has a voice that drills into your very soul and is certain to return in some viewers' nightmares.

The cast are great, the script is multi-layered and the direction tight. For a micro-budget film, this is a deeply ambitious project and, unlike Where the Dead Go to Die, it is mainly live action. However, the movie does not pull any punches and, in my opinion, it's even more graphic than its computer generated successor. There are all sorts of physical insults delivered to the human body and the camera doesn't take any prisoners. Top notch effects and editing make this an uncomfortable experience.

Part of ScreamerClauz's formula is his unique soundtrack of industrial noise, distortion and Death Metal-like music. It's a winning combination, both unsettling and enjoyable at the same time.

Recommended for fans of experimental cinema, this is a low budget diamond.
