Anchor Zone

Anchor Zone

The epic million dollar post-apocalyptic Newfoundland film that was meant to kick-start their industry. They even had plans to release it on CD-ROM, a novelization was written, and the cast was going to do internet video interviews (in 1994!)

Now, it barely exists.

It's got charming performances, a great color palette, and an abundance of sci-slang. Unfortunately, it's got a painful hole where a third act should be, and it wraps up in a total anti-climax.

Still, it's fascinating that such a big deal at the time has been completely scrubbed from Canada's cinematic memory.
