Compiled By: gammahammer@yahoo.com  Brought to you by: The Post Apocalyptic Forge05/28/04The following movie list is NOT strictly post apocalyptic. Some apocalyptic events are localor regional and not world wide, some movies/shows have merely a post apocalyptic ‘feel’.Also included are Animated Movies, Animated Series, TV movies and TV Series. Pleasecontact me if you see information you know to be in error or that you wish to add.
Genre Notes:
PA – Post Apocalyptic in the strictest sensePA regional – for a small region, the world has ended as they know itPA historical – Post Apocalyptic once upon a time, but now society is rebuildingPA feel – NOT a Post Apocalyptic movie/show, but has that roasted PA smell and feelPA fanciful – while strictly speaking is PA, it has either strange elements to its story or isintended as satire or humor and has little to do with traditional PA themes.PA adult – adult themes and images not suited for the kiddies.PA ? – I haven’t seen it, and can’t tell from it’s description how to sort this one, so yourguess is as good as mine. Please do let me know for sure.
Deliberate Omissions:
These are ‘marginal’ movies I felt just didn’t quite cut the mustard,either in feel or in more substantive ways, like plot direction. You are more than welcometo harbor your own standards of ‘acceptable’ material, as I know my decisions are arbitraryNight of the Living Dead - The story follows a small group of survivors barricaded in ahome for one night. The civil authorities show up the following morning. There is nogeneral breakdown of society and it only affects a very small regional area.Conquest of the Planet of the Apes – simply put, absolutely nothing PA about this movie,except it sets the background for the other Planet of the Apes movies and series.Escape from the Planet of the Apes – Set in contemporary, but alternate timeline, nothingto do with PA, but it does set some more of the background for the other Planet of theApes movies and series.When Worlds Collide – deals with the apocalyptic events, not the ‘after effects’. There is abook After Worlds Collide that is the direct sequel and is quite an interesting read.Resident Evil – One giant underground facility gone bad does not seem ‘apocalyptic’enough for me. It is more thriller/horror genre than anything else. PA elements too few.

=======================================================12 MonkeysCategory : Drama/PAStarring : Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, Brad PittDirector : Terry GilliamYear : 1996DescriptionInspired by Chris Marker's acclaimed short film La Jetée (which is included on the DVDShort 2: Dreams), 12 Monkeys combines intricate, intelligent storytelling with the uniquelyimaginative vision of director Terry Gilliam. The story opens in the wintry wasteland of theyear 2035, where a virulent plague has forced humans to live in a squalid, oppressivelyregimented underground. Bruce Willis plays a societal outcast who is given the opportunityto erase his criminal record by "volunteering" to time-travel into the past to obtain a puresample of the deadly virus that will help future scientists to develop a cure. But in bouncingfrom 1918 to the early and mid-1990s, he undergoes an ordeal that forces him to questionhis own perceptions of reality. Caught between the dangers of the past and thedevastation of the future, he encounters a psychiatrist (Madeleine Stowe) who is initiallyconvinced he's insane, and a wacky mental patient (Brad Pitt in a twitchy Oscar-nominatedrole) with links to a radical group that may have unleashed the deadly virus. Equal partsmystery, tragedy, psychological thriller, and apocalyptic drama, 12 Monkeys ranks as oneof the best science fiction films of the '90s, boosted by Gilliam's visual ingenuity and one ofthe finest performances of Willis's career.28 Days LaterCategory : Sci-Fi / Horror/PA regionalStarring : Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris,Director : Danny BoyleYear : 2002DescriptionA powerful virus escapes from a British research facility. Transmitted in a drop of bloodand devastating within seconds, the virus locks those infected into a permanent state ofmurderous rage. Within 28 days the country is overwhelmed and a handful of survivorsbegin their attempts to salvage a future, little realizing that the deadly virus is not the onlything that threatens them.2020 Texas GladiatorsCategory : Action/PAStarring : Harrison Muller, Al CliverDirector : Kevin MancuscoYear : 1982DescriptionThe year is 2020 and the setting is post-nuclear holocaust Texas. It's a dusty, nasty worldnow as can be seen in the opening scenes when a gang of outlaws rape and murderinnocent nuns at a mission. They then crucify the priest. Their debauched reveling isinterrupted by roving rangers who engage the villains in a blood-soaked, bone crunchingfight. The rangers manage to save a terrified young woman from the melee, and the heroicleader and she fall in love and head for the peaceful land she describes to him. Yearspass. The hero and the girl are married and she is pregnant. Trouble erupts when a
megalomaniacal Neo-Nazi dictator and his cruel minions attack the heavily fortified refineryand begin trying to convert the hapless workers to his insane idea of the New Order.A Boy and His DogCategory : Black Comedy/PAStarring : Don Johnson, Jason RobardsDirector : L.Q. JonesYear : 1975DescriptionClosely adapted from the acclaimed novella by Harlan Ellison, this postapocalyptic blackcomedy has emerged as a cult favorite since its release in 1975, when Don Johnson wasa relative unknown and still years away from TV stardom on Miami Vice. Here Johnsonplays a young, libidinous loner named Vic who roams the postnuclear wasteland with hisloyal dog, Blood, a remarkable hound with keen intelligence and the ability to telepathicallycommunicate with his less-intelligent master. It's survival of the fittest, so food and sex areVic's highest priorities, and he gets plenty of both when recruited into a mysteriousunderground society in desperate need of young fertile males. While Blood must fend forhimself on the unfriendly surface, Vic realizes that he's an exploited prisoner and mustescape to return to the canine friend he left behind. Thanks in large part to the sly wit ofBlood (whose sarcastic voice is splendidly provided by Tim McIntire), this clever anddisturbing film readily earns its lasting reputation as a low-budget classic, and features afunny yet chilling supporting role for Jason Robards Jr. The DVD includes a full-lengthcommentary by director L.Q. Jones, cinematographer John Morrill, and film critic CharlesChamplin.After the Fall of New YorkCategory : Action/PAStarring : Valentine Monnier, Michael Sopkiw, Edmund PurdomDirector : Martin DolmanYear : 1983DescriptionAfter a nuclear war, society breaks down into two groups, the evil Euraks and the rebelFederation.
