For mechanic Larry Stilson (STEVE BISLEY) and his wife Carmel (ARNA-MARIA WINCHESTER), a weekend in paradise turns into their most horrifying nightmare. At their retreat in an isolated mountain valley, they are confronted by Heinrich (ROSS THOMPSON), the victim of a deadly nuclear spill who is in the throes of a horrifying radiation death. A top secret government security team moves in with an army of vicious decontamination workers to seal off the valley, forcing Larry and Carmel to attempt a daring high-speed escape... ...But, the question growing more urgent by the minute is - can the radioactive waste be contained? Boasting high-octane car chases and spectacular stunts staged by George Miller, the director of MAD MAX, and appearances from the stars of that film (Steve Bisley, Hugh Keays-Byrne and Mel Gibson), THE CHAIN REACTION is a slick, futuristic action thriller that hurls you into the nightmarish world of terror and nuclear holocaust.
