Sarah is pregnant with the first child to be born in twenty years. With her husband dead, her fate is left in the hands of her mother and a very strange doctor figure.

These bad movies are killing my morale. Seriously. This movie was TERRIBLE. B-movies are fine, they can even be awesome; this one does not make that seem possible. “20 Years After” is incoherent and difficult to follow.

Why is that guy magic? Why has he never seen a pregnant woman even though he’s clearly older than the apocalypse? Why is everyone TALKING so damn much?! Not only were there way too many monologues, but they didn’t actually SAY anything. In a movie like this, it’s ok for nothing to be said outright – but you should show it; give the audience a chance to figure things out.

I can review this movie in a single word. What word? “No.”
