Apocalypse films wield a unique kind of force. They blend the adrenaline rush of catastrophe movies with the creeping dread of horror pictures, resulting in intense tension. Sometimes the movies take place as the world is about to end, so you have to mentally make your own end-of-the-world to-do list with the actors.
Sometimes an extinction catastrophe has already occurred, and you worry if you and the other survivors will be able to survive. And, at times, the film takes place in the middle, allowing you to fear as you witness civilization crumble in real-time.
