Postapocalypse Now! 8 Devastating Coming Attractions
Anybody can film the apocalypse. (Hello, Michael Bay!) But the day after? That takes a real hack. Ever since Chuck Heston damned those dirty apes, we've been mesmerized by the zombies and mutants that will one day rule us. Here, we rate the newest outbreak against the genre's gold standard: Road Warrior.

The Day After: What to Look For

October 2008 A corrupt mayor squanders the last energy and food in Earth's only surviving underground city. Two plucky ****s (aided by dad Tim Robbins) race to crack a code that will help citizens escape to the surface.


The Road

November 2008 Father (Viggo Mortensen) and son walk America's barren, ash-covered highways fleeing a postapocalyptic wasteland. (Shot on location in and around Pittsburgh.)


Autumn

November 2008 One day humankind is decimated by a virus. The next, the victims are resurrected as killers. Expect — nay, demand! — legions of decomposed infectees-turned-zombies.


Chrysalis

Late 2008 In this adaptation of a Ray Bradbury story, WW III leaves Earth nearly sterile, and a tiny outpost of scientists attempts to sustain plant life. Things get wacky when one of the researchers turns into a man-shaped pod.


Deadland

Early 2009 WW III again. Nukes have wiped out most of civilization, martial law rules, and one man goes up against a gun-toting regime — with little more than his wits and his mitts.


Wasteland

June 2009 Pollution destroys the ecosystem. Everything's going extinct. The cities empty. There's nothing left — apparently only a few bucks to rent Indiana Jones' fedora.


Mutant Chronicles

August 2008 (Russia-only release?) Greedy corporations vie for Earth's last remaining resources. Meanwhile, Ron Perlman and John Malkovich battle over the last remaining pieces of scenery to chew.


The Last Man

November 2008 Weaponized smallpox turns most of humanity into blind, vomiting, pus-oozing yet still walking corpses. Somehow, the uninfected 2 percent retain enough appetite to consume one another.
