Post-Apocalypse Now: Cult Classic Cinema of the Wasteland
From The Grindhouse Cinema Database
Post-Apocalyptic films are a sub-genre of science-fiction cinema. These films take place in our world after something terrible has happened such as a nuclear war or a biological plague has wiped out most of the human race.
The main characters are usually survivors who must live with a lack of technology and/or societal norms. They range from big budget movies such as Planet of the Apes (1968) where, following a catastrophic war, Apes become the dominant species on Earth, to low-budget productions such as the Mad Max series that deal with a police officer turned nomad following a mass energy shortage/nuclear war fallout.
