Reviews Two good sci fi cult items. Both films are set in a post-apocalyptic world. "2889" is an AIP flick that tells of the ordeals of the survivors of a nuclear holocaust. Starring Paul Peterson, (the younger sibling of The Donna Reed Show), this was a made-for-television movie. A Boy and His Dog is a low-budget flick that was based on Harlan Ellison's novella. I think this film really captures the bleakness of a destroyed society. The low budget aspect shows but it has garnered a cult following nonetheless.
