From the Depths of Netflix: The Terror Within

Happy Halloween everybody.  I decided I’d dust off the old review typing fingers and bring you a new feature that I like to call “From the Depths of Netflix”.  While most of the movies that we’ve reviewed over the years have been hard if not impossible to come by for most people, occasionally I’ll find a hidden b-movie gem on Netflix.  I’m going to use this feature to bring these titles to you.  This way, anyone with a Netflix account can join in on the horribleness of watching along.  The first title in this series is “The Terror Within“.

The future is a pretty dreary place.  Wars, famine, plagues, etc.  Kinda makes you not want to see it.  Thankfully, today’s story takes place 1,000 years after tomorrow, so unless there’s some kind of cure for everything released pretty soon or cryogenics steps up its’ game, we won’t have much to worry about.  See, in this future a neutron war takes place.  No, neutrons don’t fight each other, I’m guessing it’s some kind of war that has to do with neutron bombs.  After the war, the world consists of vast deserts and large city-states.  If you’re not in a city state, then you don’t use machinery (except weird floodlight/gun things) and you’re probably a mutant.  Unless, of course, you’re a guide – which is an ancient warrior that lives only by it’s own code.  If you are a guide, though, you’re hunted down to participate in the only punishment that’s still allowed in this distant future.  That punishment is Deathsport!
