What Post-Apocalyptic Worlds Look Like in Movies

By Casey Chan on at

It’s always nice (in a totally twisted way) to remind yourself of how bad things in the world could get by watching films set in a post-apocalyptic future. They’re always desolate and grim, lonely and uninviting, terribly sad and just plain awful places to live. I mean, seeing the last fictional characters on Earth trudge along a dead planet makes real life slightly more manageable. I think.

Bora Barroso edited together clips of various post-apocalyptic worlds from movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, The Road, I Am Legend, and others, to show how dark our imagination of the future can get. Each movie has its own interpretation of what life looks like after the apocalypse (wastelands, ruined cities, war scorched countries, etc.) and they’re all bleak as hell.
