Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Director Steve Barkett plays a leading role in Aftermath. Barkett and Larry Latham play two astronauts, returning from a long journey in space. They discover that, in their absence, the Earth has been plunged into a nuclear holocaust. Insane minor despots (like Sid Haig) reign supreme, with high-tech weaponry at their command. The two astronauts are forced to fight for their lives -- and later, to assist in the resistance movement. Filmed in 1980, Aftermath did not receive widespread release until 1985.
