other apocalypse movies? I was searching for something to watch on Netflix instant streaming and the sheer number of Zombie apocalypse movies is insane. I just watched The Howling: Reborn and while not a great flick, during the credits it showed brief flashes of Werewolves basically declaring all out war on man kind. Basically a Werewolf Apocalypse, which makes me think I'd love to see that.

So what other apocalypse movies have you seen out there other than the insanely widespread Zombie variety?

War of the worlds - alian apocalypse
Water world - water flood apocalypse (not sure if you count this but it's a good movie so I put it in)

Most other apocalypse movies that i can think of are just the world going to disaster with out a main enemy (like zombies or alians).

Ah yes War of The Worlds, forgot about that one.

I saw Water World a long time ago, but from what I remember, there is no impending doom threatening the humans who are left correct? If so I wouldn't call it an apocalypse movie. Like I would call Mad Max a post-nuclear fallout movie rather than Apocalypse.

Most recent I've seen were 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow; both related to some sort of weather change and both equally ridiculous.

I've seen quite a few....probably too many to list, but one that I always found fascinating was a 1990's film called 12 Monkeys. [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114746/] Good virus apocalypse stuff.

Also...

- List of apocalyptic films (1950 to present day) [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_apocalyptic_films]
- List of dystopian films [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dystopian_films]

In case you're looking for more to check out.

Children of Men

Outstanding apocalypse film, highly recommend!!!
Doooo itttt.

I hate to mention the cause of the apocalypse even if it is explained in the first 10 minutes of the movie, buuuut if you're one of those that wants a description anyway:


Completely different take on the possible cause of humanity's doom other than the usual zombie/vampire/contagion scenarios.
