Rating: 3/4 -- A solid "B" flick, and its depiction of humanity post-apocalypse is startling in its harshness. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Intriguing low-budget opus that now seems like a time-capsule of nuclear paranoia

Rating: B- -- The only thing that was hard to fully approve of in Panic in Year Zero!, was Milland's selfish philosophy for survival -- it was simply not a very human one. Full Review

May 29, 2002
Rating: 2/5 -- Mais um fruto da paranóia coletiva gerada pela Guerra Fria, o filme conta com algumas boas idéias, mas é esquemático demais para aproveitá-las a contento.

Rating: 2/5 -- A silly atomic war story with the prerequisite AIP juvenile delinquents and cheap look.

Product Description:

Newly Re-mastered in HD! "This movie will scare the daylights out of you", warned the LA Herald-Examiner upon the release of Panic in Year Zero - and with good reason. Released just before the Cuban Missile Crisis, this chiller-thriller realistically details what might happen to the survivors of a nuclear attack. Screen legend Ray Milland (X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes) leads a superb cast that includes Jean Hagen (The Asphalt Jungle) and Frankie Avalon (Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine). Harry Baldwin (Milland), his wife (Hagen) and their two teenaged kids, Rick (Avalon) and Karen (Mary Mitchell, Dementia 13) are heading to the mountain from Los Angeles for a weekend of fishing as they see a mushroom cloud forming over the L.A. skyline. With the highways and towns jammed by panicking motorists, rampaging looters, heavily armed survivalist and doped-up punks, Milland and his family decide to head to the shelter of their fishing spot, awaiting more news about nuclear disaster. Featuring gorgeous black-and-white cinematography by Gilbert Warrenton (The Man Who Laughs) and top-notch direction by Ray Milland (A Man Alone).

Bonus Features: Intro by legendary director Joe Dante | Audio Commentary by Film Historian Richard Harland Smith | Trailers
