Apocalyptic and Post Apocalyptic movies

I have been watching a lot of Non zombie Apocalyptic and Post Apocalyptic movies over the last few months, I have a large DVD and Blu-ray collection which I have been adding to as I find new titles, I think the 1970s and the1980s were the heyday of such movies, here are some posters of what I think are the best cheesy movies in the genre.

  1. There are some epic movies there... and then there are some with great titles too! Cool selection

  2. Wicked selection of movie posters. Remember nearly all of these from my formative years. Is it ok to steal these images for set dressing my scenery.

  3. You know, I started looking through this list and thought "I've never heard of any of these..." . Then when I got half-way down, I came across "A Boy and his Dog" and from then on I knew them all (even Zardoz, I'm ashamed to say). Was this sorted in any particular order, or is this just chance?

    1. I love Zardoz, it was made here in Dublin and Wicklow, so I know a lot of the places in the movie, Im a big fan of Bormans flicks

  5. Thanks for posting these up I've managed to grab one or two as you've mentioned them but there still one or two here I'd not heard of.

    I'd have to add Screamers and Cherry 2000 to these lot as well.

  6. Wow, what a great selection. Some really fun 'popcorn' movies. I have wasted many an afternoon watching these...

  7. Nice collection of movie posters on show here. The 70's and early 80's were certainly an uncertain period. Though I lived far away from the two major superpowers then i.e. US and Russia, the threat of a nuclear war was always in the back of one's mind. As a child, maybe from watching too much of such movies, I always had a recurring nightmare of cycling furiously on my tricycle away from a nuclear mushroom. O_O

  8. I only recognised seven of your films, but I think Damnation Alley is the most memorable for the atv vehicle the survivors used.

    1. Yeh that was a good one, hard to think that Fox was betting it was going to be their big Blockbusterr of 1977, and Star Wars was going to be a flop lol

  9. I thought I'd seen all the post-apocolyptic movies from the 70's & 80's there was to see, but then you made this list :p

    After watching the one's that I'd missed, I now have far less appreciation for the "uniqueness" of the original Fallout games. I knew he ripped off Mad Max, but by Christ, I didn't know he grabbed the bulk of it from these movies!

    Aside from this revelation, I'd like to thank you for posting this list, well worth seeing these old gems.

    Cheers.
