Day of Chaos Film Club
« on: 12 March, 2020, 06:37:06 PM »
Well, since we do seem to have front row seats for the Apocalypse, it seems prudent to reflect on options for a entertainment during self isolation.  Thinking about the most appropriately linked films to include:

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Andromeda Strain (original, not the remake).
Outbreak
I Am Legend
The Last Man on Earth
The Omega Man
12 Monkeys
World War Z
28 Days Later
The Stand
Masque of the Red Death

....

Cabin Fever. The original, obviously.
The Crazies - both versions, though the first is superior.
[REC]

There's also Contagion, which has a far better plot than Outbreak, but is probably too close to the truth to make for comfortable viewing at the moment. I may be the only person to like it, but Doomsday is massive fun. Far from intelligent, but that's what makes it so amusing.

I'd also throw in the mini-series The Stand as that has some wonderful moments. Ropey as hell, but given the budget they had to work with...

There's likely half a dozen Fulci films which would also fit the bill. :D

After watching the U.K. PM response I couldn’t help thinking of Aliens.

“You don't see them fucking each other over for a goddamn percentage.”

It’s going to be a long isolation. Special Edition anyone?

Mad Max
Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (featuring Mad Scotch Mel: The Woad Warrior from Braveheart)

...and the third movie in the saga:

Mad Max: Fury Road


Plus all your modern Teen Dystopia fare about scarcity of resources and the breakdown of society (even though nobody mentions toilet paper):

 - The Hunger Games
 - The Maze Runner
++ logos ++ stages ++ coma ++

Lord of the Flies.

Been years since I've seen it but I seem to remember liking it a lot at the time.
