Synopsis After a mysterious gas kills everyone on earth over the age of 25, a wisecracking hippy (Robert Corff) and his scientist girlfriend (Elaine Griftos) wander the lawless landscape of Texas and New Mexico in search of a pueblo commune where peaceful survivors are gathering. On the way they must contend with various run-amok youth cultures, including a raping and pillaging football team and a fascist country club run by golf-cart-driving Hells Angels. Ben Vereen, Cindy Williams, and Talia Coppola (before she was Talia Shire) costar as the fellow freaks who join the lovers on their odyssey. This gleefully irreverent counterculture comedy was one of the last films directed by Roger Corman. To link it with Corman's earlier horror works, Edgar Allan Poe appears on a motorcycle, while some free love under a wild light show recalls THE TRIP. Country Joe and the Fish did the psychedelic score and can be seen playing at a drive-in. For fans of 1960s fare such as WOODSTOCK, EASY RIDER, or the comedy of the Firesign Theater, this free-spirited film should definitely amuse and even inspire with its sharp wit and subversive idealism.Filmed in Texas and New Mexico. Roger Corman and screenwriter George Armitage shot the film more or less without a script, making things up as they went along with their actors and crew around different locations. Armitage later went on to direct MIAMI BLUES and GROSSE POINT BLANK. Producers Samuel Z. Arkoff and James Nicholson hated the film when they saw it and recut it drastically without Corman's consent. This caused him to quit working for AIP and, after making one more film, didn't direct again until 1990, preferring to concentrate on production and forming his own company, New World.Now that you are sole heir to our world, you will have every opportunity to achieve wickedness.--Edgar Allan Poe (Bruce Karcher) to gathered hippies Two-four-six-eight, who do we annihilate? Eeeeeeeeverybody!--Cheerleaders for the Warriors (a rampaging football team)
