In the Year 2889
In a post nuclear Earth, survivors are stuck in a valley and have to protect themselves from mutant human beings, and each other in some cases.
In the Year 2889 (also known as Year 2889) is a 1967 made-for-television, post-apocalyptic science fiction film from American International Pictures about the aftermath of a future nuclear war. The film stars Paul Petersen, Quinn O’Hara, Charla Doherty, Neil Fletcher and Hugh Feagin. AIP commissioned low-budget cult film auteur Larry Buchanan to produce and direct this film as a color remake of Roger Corman’s 1955 film Day the World Ended.
Although not set in the year 2889, In the Year 2889‘s title is borrowed from a short story of the same title by Jules Verne and his son, Michael Verne.
A nuclear war has wiped out most of Earth’s population. The film follows a group of survivors who are holed up in a secluded valley and must protect themselves from rising radiation levels, mutants, and in some cases, each other.
