Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch During a party to celebrate the departure from New York of one of them, there is upheaval in the city, and they see buildings falling. They try to find safety but it is apparent that there is none, and so they go in search of the girlfriend of one of them as the devastation in the city contiues. The whole thing is filmed on a hand held video camera.
Content A whole load of shouting and shaky filming, and the narrative makes little sense. The party goers are gradually picked off as more of the city is destroyed.
A View Just as well this was only 80 minutes. As it was I had to take a rest – fortunately the film was recorded. I was going to say that some of the plot was pretty unfeasable – but we’re talking about a monster destroying New York, so what the hell!
