I watched the film right through out of morbid curiosity to see if the ridiculous plot, clichéd script and wooden acting could get any worse, and it certainly did! The dreary background music which was played mostly throughout, which was obviously intended to add to the "drama", just made the whole thing more comically bad. The premise of the film (we have to assume) is that there is an impending nuclear strike. One man has a built a nuclear shelter for such an occasion, but it can only hold 10 people and not a single one more. As a result, as more people arrive wanting to stay in this shelter, it has to be decided who can stay and who must go based on they're "worth". I'd assumed that people in a fallout shelter would remain in the shelter for a long while after a nuclear bomb drop, so the fact that one of the 10 was a girl who was expecting a baby in 3 months would have made an eventual total of 11! However, I needn't have worried, since a day or so after the nuclear event, we see everybody calmly leaving the shelter and heading for the radioactive outdoors! Duh?!?

If you can get past the bad acting and sometimes poor script, you will like this film. What would you do if you had a shelter to accommodate ten people during a catastrophe? We're not told what the catastrophe is, our only attention is drawn to the people in the shelter and how they are selected. There are flaws in the plot, but if the hatch is closed immediately after the ten are selected, there would be no story. The performances of the actors does get better whilst we move further into the film and we become well acquainted with them and can feel their apprehension. I would've preferred a better ending that gave an insight into what had occurred to cause the shelter to be built. This film is much better than lots of B movies out there. I say give it a chance.
