Damnation Alley (Jack Smight, 1977)

A low-budget post apocalyptic classic. Plenty of cheap-looking '70s visual effects. It's probably not a very well made film but I like it. Anything post apocalyptic will appeal to me. I can imagine making a post-apocalyptic Uncle Acid album one day. It's something that I've always been really into from when I was younger and growing up watching Mad Max – probably way before I should have been watching it – I've always been attracted to the idea of the lawless wasteland.
