The Divide Movie Summary:
Nine strangers, all residing in a New York high apartment building, they escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker basement.
Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on against their neighbor with physical and psycho-sexual torment.

“Expect the dregs for weeks to come, but I can safely say with absolutely no trepidation that it is unlikely to get worse than a lurid, lewd and loathsome shockfest called The Divide. “
