Event Impact

Space.  We already know it’s the final frontier, but if the events of Impact Event (involving a big ass meteor and its ultimate destination of our backyard) are to be believed, it just might bring about our final destination . . . with cannibals in hot pursuit.

"Impact Event has arrived and it is armed with killer clowns..  Are you ready?"


But, first, there’s going to be a huge ass party!  I mean, what would you do with your final day on planet earth?  Social media is on fire, but the real threat is coming from the clouds above and not the virtual cloud.  That’s the mistake a lot of idiots are making in the hours and minutes before an asteroid has its way with the earth.  

The media is saying it is going to narrowly miss the Earth, but that doesn’t matter.  There are deniers out there who want to raise holy hell for their own amusement and then there are others out there that believe it is going to smash right into the planet, not missing us at all. The truth is more harrowing than expected as a meteor, known as the Roberts Meteor, brings about the endgame for life on Earth.

Leave it to a motley band of survivors already prepped for the end of the world to be ready to rock and roll.  It’s the end of the world and they feel fine. Unfortunately, some of them decide to go shopping before the end rolls about.  Their BIG mistake. 

The world, as expected, goes to shit relatively quickly.  As every living thing is killed and mutated on the surface, this small band of survivors takes refuge in a fun house that’s been converted into a bomb shelter.  The madness is just beginning as horror icons Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, The Devil’s Rejects) and Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior, Fortress) fight all types of cannibalistic mutants.

Although made two years ago, this independent flick feels timely, thanks to all our corona-virus fears and the deniers who have taken to the streets to protest social distancing orders, as it focuses on the handful of preppers who want to survive mass extinction when the Roberts asteroid blows up in the atmosphere.  

With all electronics rendered useless by the endless amounts of shockwaves, they hunker down in a fun house of festival fears, ready for whatever horrors emerge from the toxic cloud that spreads across the face of the earth.

But are they truly prepared to become killers?  Because the bloodlust borne from the radiation glow of the impact has created an entire army of cannibalistic mutants and they are hungry as hell! Poorly acted and often hilarious, for all the wrong reasons, this title - involving Mr. Chitter Chatter and his cronies - is best left for a late, late Friday night and lots of beer guzzling in order to be enjoyed.Event Impact
