Damnation Alley is the story of a tricked-out military RV being driven around under some very brightly colored skies after a nuclear apocalypse that takes thirteen minutes to play out. Somebody was very concerned that we might not understand what had happened to the world, because this was four years before The Road Warrior demonstrated what postapocalyptic movies should be like. Sadly, it was also five months AFTER Star Wars came out, which made Damnation Alley look like absolute slop.
