Shelf Life (1993) Poster

In 1963, a paranoid middle-class couple locks themselves and their small kids in their nuclear fallout shelter. 30 years later, their oblivious son and two daughters still survive there playing absurd games. A play-based dark comedy.

3 August 2003 | EyeAskance
stagy but altogether original dark comedy oddity
On the day of the assassination of JFK, a paranoid father moves his family into their bomb shelter. Thirty years pass, and the 3 siblings have become adults(the parents have since died). Their world is a single room, and they spend their days engaging in song-and-dance rituals and psychodramatizing television broadcasts. "Shelf Life" might have made a better short film, as it's premise has little to build upon...but if your in the mood for something REALLY strange, give this a look- if you can find it.
