Written by legendary Sci-Fi author Harlan Ellison (Star Trek, The Twilight Zone), this classic cult tale follows a young man (Don Johnson) and his telepathic dog in the year 2024, as they struggle to survive in a post-atomic wilderness.
Vic (Don Johnson), survivor of atomic holocaust, wanders hungrily across the bleak desert landscape in search of cans of food buried deep in radioactive ash. His telepathic dog, Blood (Tim McIntire) depends on Vic for food, but Vic needs Blood to find him something much more scarce: female companionship. The bedraggled duo eventually discover an underground society of survivors, called "Down Under," where they have reproduced the look of pre-apocalypse Americana but with frighteningly totalitarian politics. A cult black comedy based on the novella by Harlan Ellison.
