In the Year 2889 (1967) Review

But Daddy, can we at least keep the alcoholic stripper?

In the Year 2889 (1967): 2 out of 10: Great, now I can’t get that damn song out of my head. (No, it doesn’t appear on the soundtrack. In the Year 2525 came out a year later in 1968. Come to think of it, I’m not sure if this film even has a soundtrack.)

Okay, the movie. First of all, the characters all dress and look like extras in the Zapruder film, so I’m not sure where this whole year 2889 comes from. Apparently the earth was destroyed by nuclear radiation, except this one house with three months’ worth of food for three people. But then an extra guy shows up with an alcoholic stripper.

Personally, if the earth is destroyed by nuclear bombs, I’m rooting for the alcoholic stripper to show up. (Heck, who am I kidding? I’m always rooting for the alcoholic stripper nuclear radioactive fallout or not).

Very talky with some okay performances and very silly monsters. It is another Buchanan TV remake, but better than his usual fair. More time wasting curiosity than anything mistaken for entertainment.
