* AfterTheEnd: The world has been infested with Vampires and society has collapsed. The vamps have ravaged America and it's long since fallen. Later we learn the Middle East is swarming with them to the extent the military action there wass called to an end because there was no human enemy left to fight. Once the US government leaders flee, leaving their countries high and dry, most soldiers abandon their posts to try and make it to their families. Apocalyptic cults emerge shortly thereafter and rumours of cannibals are mentioned.

While there are as many {{headscratchers}} in this film as in any other of this genre, the film tries to be different in showing some people who still have hope and good days in this world alongside the normal rough life these films portray.

The film got generally positive reviews but had a limited release and so did not make much money.
