"The nuclear war is over but the fight for survival has just begun". "A hero rises from the wreckage of a nuclear war on a quest for one woman who can save the human race". Hey, I know this movie doesn't belong in the top twenty, but it deserves a mention on this list. "Lou Ferrigno is: Desert Warrior".
Great movie in the same style as The Matrix and Dark City. Also came out the same year Computer scientist Hannon Fuller has discovered something extremely important. He's about to tell the discovery to his colleague, Douglas Hall, but knowing someone is after him, the old man leaves a letter in his computer generated parallel world that's just like the 30's with seemingly real people with real emotions. Fuller is murdered in our real world the same night, and his colleague is suspected. Douglas discovers a bloody shirt in his bathroom and he cannot recall what he was doing the night Fuller was murdered. He logs into the system in order to find the letter, but has to confront the unexpected. The truth is harsher than he could ever imagine
any movie starring two Stifflers should get my vote. Add a dash of alternate energy (perpetual), and a pinch of a rift in time/space, and you get the best acting performance of the Roc's career. Plus, any movie where (SPOILER) the entire universe ends, must make a top 100
Groundbreaking 1959 classic uses post apocalypse to examine racial/social issues
IMDb summary: In a post-apocalyptic world, in which a large part of the population consists of demented and deformed mutants being kept in reservations, a man embarks upon visiting the ruins of a museum buried under the sea which can only be accessed during low tide.
Fantastic post-apocalyptic comedy! Nothing like a bunch of guys running around with huge boners chasing women with rocks!
You have got to be kidding that this movie isn't on the list. It is not really post-apocalyptic, but neither is 1984 - but a fantastic dystopic one...
This 2011 foreign flick is true post apocalyse. Resources are scarce. People are dirty. Daeth is around every corner. The acting is superb. The filming is even better. If you can read subtitles in English, you will be in heaven.
Everything that could go wrong did go wrong: War, Terrorism, Natural Disasters. Evacuees were ushered from the cities to refugee camps in the surrounding counties. In-fighting, famine and disease took their toll on the survivors. Now, twenty years after the bombs fell and the plagues ran their course the few that remain live in fear and without hope. Azura Skye stars as Sarah in this Post-Apocalyptic Fairy Tale about a young woman's journey to deliver the first child born in 15 Years. Sarah's refusal to give up is inspired by a lone voice on her radio. Michael broadcasts dim and distant messages of hope mixed with the music he scavenges from the dead. Forced from her basement home by drought and relentlessly pursued by those who want her baby, Sarah crosses paths with Michael in a cavernous, underground refuge of disparate survivors. It is from Three Caves that Michael and Sarah will embark on a journey beyond the boundaries of the Southern Corridor and into the unknown future.
Hilarious parody of multiple titles. The actor that plays Rick is side-splittingly funny. CARL!
A group of people try to survive when machines start to come alive and become homicidal.
A colony of ants in the desert form a collective intelligence and wage war against the humans that live there. Two scientists rescue a little girl from the ants and then set out to destroy the creatures, but the ants have plans of their own. This movie is older 1972 but it is disturbing. I have not seen it in a long time. But it belongs on this list. And up above most of the movies on here that are not even in the correct genre
I think this is among the top 15 best apocolypse movies, I also like the day after tomorrow
Low budget, slow paced but nice cinematography and decent acting. What I liked most was how the actors portrayed how lonely it would be to be the only two left (that they know of). They keep searching, because what else is there, really? Not a top 10, but worth a watch if you are ok with slower paced films.
If you haven't seen this, please do, it is a unique take on the environment of a post-apocalyptic world, with a really deep look at class divides. It also has great acting, action, cinematography. Awesome movie!
In this X-rated post-apocalyptic movie, 99+% of people are sex-neagative, and cannot have/enjoy sex. The rare sex-positives are required to perform sex at Cafe Flesh. Won Best Art Decoration Award for an adult movie (1983/1984). Rinse Dream. Actual actors. Two penii up.
Great end of the world flick a la On the Beach. Revolves around a man's last few hours on earth and what he decides to do with them. The last 15 minutes or so of the movie.....yikes...
A mixture of Mad Max, Escape from New York and Planet of the Apes. Great cheesy fun!
Apocalytpic rather than post. Very underated Brit film (obviously since it didn't even make this list) Give this one a go.
Not really post-apocalyptic movies but in 10.5 there is an earthquake in Seattle, Washington in the morning hours 6.2 magnitude. San Francisco at noon 7.5 I think. Los Angeles 5-6 pm 8.6 I can't really remember the magnitudes but it is one big quake that starts in Seattle and the magnitude strengthens throughout the day with it hitting LA the hardest and making some of LA an island making it part of a apocalyptic-hit zone.
Good German Zombie film. Recommended. Some original ideas. Just when Michael arrives in Berlin to visit his ex-girlfriend Gabi, a terrible virus starts spreading across the city at a rapid pace, turning people into mindless homicidal maniacs. Much to Michael's concern, Gabi's not home; instead, he meets Harper, a teenage plumber's apprentice at work in her apartment block. Together, they manage to barricade themselves when raging hordes of infected people swarm the building. Surrounded by these thirsty zombies, Michael and Harper have their hands full to survive - and it will take all of their ingenuity to make their way out to try and find Gabi.
Its a b rated dolph lundgrend movie i really liked it but it aint no showdown in little tokyo tho.but just give it a shot its pretty good
this is by far the best zombie movie has fun characters and an amazing special effects no cgi and awesome gore definitively needs to be on the list if your a zombie fan its a must watch
"A group of very different individuals with different ideas of how to face the end come together as the world is expected to end in six hours at the turn of the century." Sandra Oh was very compelling in this flick. I still think of it often. Worth a mention.
A 1975 b&w post-apocalyptic film that was never released theatrically but now on DVD. Still somewhat of a filmic obscurity but belongs right up there.
