Rating: 9 | Director: Terry Gilliam | IMDB | Trailer | Amazon


20 Years After (Like Moles, Like Rats)
Rating: 5. | Director: Jim Torres | IMDB | Trailer | Amazon



2019 After the Fall of New York
This was a poor B movie and the one redeeming value was the sets. An Italian movie, all the dialogue was dubbed and sometimes confusing to the story line. The garb was a mixture of new wave, punk, and medieval knights (yes I said knights). Our protagonist is looking for the last fertile woman 20 years after a nuclear war.

A Boy and his Dog
Based on a novella by Harlan Ellison. Stars Don Johnson (no he doesn't suck in this movie) as a scavenger with a dog whos got some strange telepathy thing going on. The first part is slow, but oh boy wait till they go underground where all the people dress like clowns!

Rating: ? | Director: Jo Beom-jin | IMDB | Trailer | Amazon


After the Apocalypse
My first impression of this movie was that it reminded me of Luc Besson's "Le Dernier Combat": Another black and white silent film. The only information about the disaster we have is that it takes place after World War III. The movie is set in a broken down industrial district. We see five distinct survivors who seem to be aimlessly trying to recreate some semblance of normality. Of the five survivors only one is a woman. She spends the majority of the movie clutching a doll as if she wants a baby of her own. They don't communicate through spoken language, only grunts. The plot seemed very thin and directionless. Instead of delving into any action, the movie maintains a dark, desolate, plodding pace. I would call this an "arthouse" film, but there didn't seem to be any discernible theme or message, rather it simply portrayed 5 people trying to get by in this particular post apocalyptic vision of the future.

Cold Harvest
A comic book PA film found in the action section, this movie is all fighting and gaudy overacting. Based after a comet has struck earth and darkened the sky, the land is pretty lawless. Except for one cat who seems to be a mixture of Chuck Norris and Billy the kid. This movie is too much of a cheap kung-fu/western rip-off.

Fando & Lis
According to Yahoo, "this movie caused a riot upon its premiere at the 1968 Acapulco film festival". After 5 minutes, I was wondering when the good part would start. After 10 I was like when is this going to be over with. I don't know if this counts as post apocalyptic, but they talk of a "great catastrophe" and society sure seems like it. If you can withstand the nonstop artsy stuff and subtitles, you'll see why it caused a riot at the end.

Fist of the North Star
Based on the Manga, a legendary warrior battles against the forces of evil in a post apocalyptic world.
Rating: 5 | Director: Tony Randel | IMDB | Trailer | Amazon


Five
Released in 1951 and written/directed by Arch Oboler, Five is just another lackluster post apocalyptic movie. The basic premise is that a nuclear war wipes out everyone, but somehow everything seems to remain intact. The (you guessed it) "Five" remaining people lived through the nukes because of strange circumstances or possibly by being immune to radiation. This is also another "one dame left" flick. While not very imaginative, it's more realistic then most PA movies in the way it portrays despair.

Numb
In a future where emotion and desire have been wiped away by an unshakable new narcotic, society exists simply to provide a constant source of the drug. Crumbling Yerba city stands empty, except for its drug-parlors, where the remnants of the population cluster, drifting towards oblivion. Only the android attendants are still capable of action, mindlessly maintaining and administering the 'drip'. Years after escaping to the wastelands outside the city, Claire, one of the few people left who is not an addict, returns looking for the one man who still matters to her. As she makes her way through the dazed world of the city's junkies, only one person seems able to provide any help: the obsessive and self-destructive Miles, the last of the city's security officers. Genetically engineered to be immune to the drug, Miles' strange charisma draws Claire to him, but when he brutally guns down a group of harmless dissidents, she begins to doubt she can really trust anyone. With no other leads, Claire warily sets out with Miles towards Tiburon, a secret community outside the city that may be the last hold-out against the drug... and may bring Claire face to face with her past.

Sexmission (Seksmisja)
This is a polish movie you need to watch with subtitles, and no the title does not have anything to do with what you think. Two guys get cryogenically frozen, and when they wake up, all that's left are women. I think this was some sort of play on post-feminist society and all that, but really, some of the humor was lost in the translation.

You can definitely tell this is circa 80's with the crimped hair and big manes. This follows a generic plot outline of the silent tough guy, and yes the precious commodity in the movie is water.

Armageddon's Children
The world, now ravaged by nuclear war and plague, lies in ruins. Demons and their once-men underlings scour the continents, enslaving and experimenting upon what healthy young remain. Mutations from the fallout and poisons have produced offshoots from humanity - Moles (those adapted to living underground), Spiders (named for their agile, long limbs), and the scaly, brutish Lizards. Zombie-like creatures called Croaks roam free as well, searching for bodies to devour. Most humans are walled up in stadiums and arenas in large cities, fortified compounds filled with thousands of frightened refugees. A few, mostly children, live as tribes hidden in buildings on the streets.

The Pesthouse
"In this postapocalyptic picaresque from Whitbread-winner Crace (for Quarantine), America has regressed to medieval conditions. After a forgotten eco-reaction in the distant past, the U.S. government, economy and society have collapsed. The illiterate inhabitants ride horses, fight with bows and swords and scratch a meager living from farming and fishing. But with crop yields and fish runs mysteriously dwindling, most are trekking to the Atlantic coast to take ships to the promised land of Europe, gawking along the way at the ruins of freeways and machinery yards, which seem the wasteful excesses of giants. Heading east, na茂ve farm boy Franklin teams up with Margaret, a recovering victim of the mysterious "flux" whose shaven head (mark of the unclean) causes passersby to shun her. Their love blossoms amid misadventures in an anarchic landscape: Franklin is abducted by slave-traders; Margaret falls in with a religious sect that bans metal and deplores manual labor, symbolically repudiating America's traditional cult of progress, technology and industriousness (masculinity takes some hits, too). Crace's ninth novel leaves the U.S. impoverished, backward, fearful and abandoned by history."
