Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Between A Quiet Place: Part II depicting how humanity might look after civilization has been destroyed by blind, man-eating aliens, and COVID-19 preventing us from going out to the movie theaters to see it (EDIT: In a much more direct way than I had initially meant, as it turns out), it’s an exciting time for fans of apocalypses. To celebrate – or prepare? – we’re taking a look at our favorite films about what happens after the end of everything.  We share our top five apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic movies, all those merry and uplifting tales of how nuclear war, environmental collapse, zombies, or, yes, pandemics have destroyed the world and left behind only the abandoned ruins for scavengers to pick over.

In Worth Mentioning we cover OnwardTimmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made and Hook.
