SHELF LIFE
1993, 81 min, USA, Dir: Paul Bartel

The last feature directorial effort from Paul Bartel (DEATH RACE 2000, EATING RAOUL) offers a subversive look at suburban values across two generations. Spooked by the Kennedy assassination, the St. Cloud family retreats to the safety of their fallout shelter - but never gets the "all clear" when the nuclear holocaust they'd feared fails to materialize. Decades later, after their parents have died, Tina (O-Lan Jones), Pam (Andrea Stein) and Scotty (Jim Turner) are still in that bunker, having grown to adulthood through daily rituals fashioned from snippets of television and vague memories of the world outside. Never before released, SHELF LIFE strikes a darkly comedic tone sure to make it a cult favorite.
