Follow-up your Thanksgiving with this 1975 indie classic - what better way to celebrate the year in which Vic was born than with a screening of the film based on Harlan Ellison's novella.

The year is 2024. World War IV, which only lasted 5 minutes, has long been over, leaving behind a post-apocalyptic wasteland. 18-year old Vic (Don Johnson in his first, and by far best, performance) wanders with his dog, Blood, who communicates with him telepathically. The none-too-bright Vic scavenges for food; the rather learned and sarcastically witty Blood sniffs out women for sex. Into this relationship comes Quilla, a woman from "Down Under" - a supposedly idyllic underground society which attempts to preserve the past. Quilla lures Vic "Down Under" where he discovers that there are some rather nefarious plans for him. Sometimes criticized as being misogynistic, it is important to remember that this is set in a misogynistic society - from there, we leave it up to you to make your own determinations. This is, however, considered by fans and detractors alike to have one of the best film endings ever and was a direct influence on films such as "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior." Also with Jason Robards.

And a little trivia: Blood is actually one of the dogs who played Tiger on the original The Brady Bunch TV series (there were a few canine actors in the role of Tiger).

Oh, and this ain't necessarily one for the kiddies.
