Cult filmmaker Sergio Martino directed this violent sci-fi actioner, one of many to pour out of Italy in the wake of Mad Max (1979). Michael Sopkiw stars as Parsifal, who travels to New York in order to rescue the last fertile woman on Earth following a nuclear holocaust. Graphic scenes of rape and murder await the viewer, as well as rats, midgets, and subway-riding revolutionaries. Edmund Purdom and Luigi Montefiori (aka "George Eastman") are among the familiar supporting cast.
