the story took place in a far future, where after global warming, the Earth was covered by ice and snow. the survivors lived in facilitated underground named the Colonies. one day, Colony 7 received a distress signal from Colony 5. their leader Briggs, organized an expedition with Sam and Graydon, to investigate. they walked for two days, reaching the other colony, out of 50 persons, they only found one survivor who was scared to his death, locked in a room. soon they found that a savage group of cannibals had slaughtered the colonists.
despite the setting and some very confusing characters, the film was surprisingly entertaining. the first half of the film dragged on a little, with plenty of repetitive conflicts between the people in Colony 7. during the second half, the pace was finally increased and when the cannibals started appearing, the excitement was kicked up a notch. despite not having much surprises for the film, it was fortunately solid.
