“Listen, this is no time for an attitude problem!”

Everybody is eagerly waiting for a comet coming. But the comet turns most of the population to red dust, the rest is divided into few survivors, crazy scientists and flesh-eating zombies. We follow a couple of happy-go-lucky sisters handling their new life. But will they survive?

Likeable bunch of characters, that are well played. But accompanied with fluffy 80’s pop songs, this is more of a horror light, the family edition. Some cool scenes though. Especially the gory ones, and the last-people-on-earth-kinda scenes. Now I have to knock the synth beats out of my head and go to bed!
