Damnation Alley is a 1977 science-fiction thriller set in a post-apocalyptic world.

World War III happens. The crew at a remote US Air Force missile base survive the war, but following an accident which kills several of them and destroys most of their supplies, the remainder decide to make their way across the country to the only part of the USA that is still inhabitable. Unfortunately, the only way to get there is a narrow strip of not-quite lethal wasteland, dubbed by the leader of the expedition as "Damnation Alley." As the name suggests, it's no picnic. They set out in two "LandMaster" armored vehicles, encountering various dangers and other survivors as they travel east.

The LandMaster prop is arguably the best thing in this movie, and went on to have almost as long a career in cinema as the human star, Jan-Michael Vincent.

Very vaguely inspired by the excellent novel of the same name by Roger Zelazny, in which Hell Tanner, the last Hell's Angel, is hired/coerced into driving across a post-apocalyptic Dystopian US to deliver a desperately needed vaccine.
