In this nightmarish indie debut, writer-director Chris Gorak imagines what might happen if bioterrorists detonated dirty bombs across Los Angeles. The main character, a young musician (Rory Cochrane), learns about the attack on the radio and searches frantically for his wife (Mary McCormack) before reluctantly sealing himself inside their house. When she returns, traumatized and covered in toxic ash, he can't let her inside without exposing himself to a lethal virus. This doomsday scenario takes up the first third of the movie, after which the tension dissipates and the couple act out a sort of chamber drama in which the chambers are constructed from plastic sheeting. A shocker ending tips the story into the forced irony of The Twilight Zone, but this is still impressive for its chilling premise and shrewd low-budget execution. R, 96 min.
