"Damnation Alley" is a 1977 post-apocalyptic film directed by Jack Smight ("Airport 1975", "Midway"). It stars Jan-Michael Vincent, George Peppard, Paul Winfield, Dominique Sanda and Jackie Earle Haley and was based on a best-selling book by Roger Zelazny.
The film was originally expected to be a big hit, but production delays and poor special effects doomed "Damnation Alley" to failure, as it bombed at the box office (failing to bring back its $17 million budget) and received mostly negative reviews around the time. Ultimately, the film went on to become a cult classic and was finally released on DVD by Shout! Factory in July 2011.
