Post-apocalyptic Movies

The term “post-apocalyptic” is very broad and very deep. It includes movies and TV shows and covers everything from zombie invasions or plagues through to romantic comedies or even tear-jerker romance movies. There are a lot of monsters, apes, zombies, ghouls and goblins. There are a lot of scantily-clad women, there are some religious themes in the lower-quality movies, and they come in many European and North American languages (English, French, Polish, Russian). The percentage scores are mostly from Rotten Tomatoes, with some variation. 

Also, a lot of post-apocalyptic movies are based on novels.
