The world crashed, not with a scream, but just a whimper. The failure of the national power grid caused the government to crumble. All that remained was now truly local, and truly chaos. Our story starts in Cachney County, USA, 3 years after the apocalypse. The county is ruled by a former New York supermodel, who was eventually rejected by the same establishment which had embraced her. To call her cruel or vain would be an understatement.

The Story:
Rumor is, pretty girls have been disappearing. Another rumor is that Amber likes to use the blood of these pretty girls as skin cream. Sylvie ends up serving in Queen Amber's palace, where she sees many other girls held captive and true vanity. Although Amber has organized the locals and kept them fed, how long can this tenuous situation hold on?

The Rating:
The storyline didn't seem to fit at certain points and this was just generally boring to watch. Who wants to watch a movie about some broad with a severe vanity problem go crazy? Just watch if you're bored. I give it a 5 out of 10.
