survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the proverbial last woman on earth, until she discovers the most astonishing sight of her life: another human being. A distraught scientist (Chiwetel Ejiofor) he's nearly been driven mad by radiation exposure and his desperate search for others. A fragile, imperative strand of trust connects them. But when a stranger (Chris Pine) enters the valley, their precarious bond begins to unravel.

BAD MOVIE NIGHT: HARD ROCK NIGHTMARE -- TUESDAY OCTOBER 20
Celebrating the very worst that cinema has to offer, Bad Movie Night commemorates another Halloween with the headbanging horror of HARD ROCK NIGHTMARE. Jimmy has a smokin’ rock band called The Bad Boys and they’re seconds away from hitting the big time. The only thing holding them back is a few more hours of solid rehearsal, but their uppity neighbors complain about the constant racket, forcing the police to put an end to The Bad Boys’ rockin’.
Fortunately for the band, Jimmy inherited an isolated cabin in the woods from his grandpa (whom he may or may not have kinda murdered…), so everyone piles into a RV, groupies in tow, for a wild weekend of hot music and even hotter girls. But after finding the second or third mutilated body, Jimmy assumes they are being stalked by his dead grandfather who may or may not have been a werewolf. Will the Bad Boys achieve heavy metal stardom or will their dreams quickly become a HARD ROCK NIGHTMARE? Find out this month, only at Bad Movie Night!
