Out With A Bang: Ten Films For Your Last Day On Earth

That silly plot device of avoiding or surviving an apocalypse seems to be an appropriate use of your last day. Therefore, we encourage you to check out these ten films before the impending rapture. From zombies to aliens, robots, nuclear holocaust, God, disease, stupidity, infertility, supernova, global warming, the Devil, meteors, comets, asteroids, animal uprisings, pirates (and the list continues into infinity) the world will end some way, so we have provided a basic primer via film here. Also, be sure to check out Exit Mundi for even more predictions on how the world will end.
