As it turns out, end-of-the-world flick aren’t all that new, as you can see from this list of the Top 10 End of the World Movies have been something of a “thing” for quite some time.
To be sure, while this list comprises just 10, there have been many, many more (and I’ve seen all but two on this list, and quite a few of the others)
10. 28 Days Later (2002)
9. Night of the Comet (1984)
8. Miracle Mile (1988)
7. Children of Men (2006)
6. The Day After (1983)
5. The Road Warrior (1981)
4. The Terminator (1984)
3. Dawn of the Dead Remake (2004)
2. I am Legend (2007)
1. 12 monkeys (1995)
Not entirely sure my top 10 list would hole all of these films (Personally I prefer the original versions of the Dawn of the Dead films to the remakes).
Anyway, these are all very cool flicks, especially these three minutes of pure horror…
Not bad for a made-for TV flick produced in 1983, eh?
