The 1983 film Endgame – Bronx lotta finale is an Italian post-apocalyptic film directed by Joe D’Amato under a pseudonym, the same director as classic cult films like the Atorseries and Troll 3.
After a nuclear war, New York City is full of radiation. Scavengers and mutants live in the city, all of which are treated poorly by the rich elite who survived in bunkers. To pacify the populace, a reality television show called Endgame is televised, which is a gladiator-style show where the scavengers and warriors fight each other, to the death.
Ron Shannon (played by Al Cliver) has won the show before, and decides he can help take survivors to safety. He gathers a group of mutants and helps them escape, traveling across the desert and fighting obstacles like blind warrior monks, agents from the elite government, robbers, and other mercenaries.
When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
