If only the film it was designed to promote was as artistically rendered. The scene, which is also featured on the poster, unfortunately never even appears in the movie.
What we get instead are stock characters in a thin plot about a misfit military unit delivering supplies to top-secret Sector 16 in the Yuma Desert of New Mexico. The site of nuclear tests decades ago, the mines in the hills are now occupied by mutants, lumpily deformed so that they blend in seamlessly with the rocky desert, and particularly interested in the women, whom they keep alive for breeding purposes. The National Guardsmen and -women are picked off one by one in scenes of birth, death, rape and other carnage that aim to be as grotesque as possible.
