Scariest Apocalypse/Nuclear War Movie

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Scribbled_Notz, Nov 25, 2006.

  1. The Day After was on last night. Still seems to be just as scary today as it was when I first saw it in the theater. So it got me thinking...what are the scariest "world ends" movies that you've ever seen?

    Aside from The Day After, I think Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later are pretty great, too.

    Wasn't The Day After a TV movie?

    I didn't even see it and it freaked me out for weeks. Of course, I was 10.

    There was a pretty good world ending movie starring Anthony Edwards in the late '80s. I think it was called "Miracle Mile." It scared me because *SPOILER* it ended with the world actually ending.

    "Night of the Comet" always scared the hell out of me too. :D :D

    Don't know if anyone ever saw it, but The Children's Hour, while not an apocalypse movie, was an after-the-fact thing when the communists took over America. Very frightening from a different perspective.

    "Threads" made "The Day After" look like The Muppet Movie.
  5. It was a TV movie in the states and the UK, and presented in some theaters outside the states. I actually think it was in some theaters in the UK, too. I saw it in a theater in Toronto. A lot of people walked out very disturbed.

    Thank God for those eight kids! Well, except for the shithead who turned on us and was murdered by Ponyboy.

    I love Red Dawn, but holy smokes, that was a poor motion picture.

    28 Days Later isn't.
