The 30 best post-apocalyptic movies

After compiling a list of the 30 best-reviewed animal attack movies, I decided to do the same with post-apocalyptic movies.
As with the animal attack movies, I first put together a clean list.
My list of post-apocalyptic movies weeded out pre-apocalypse movies and those that were mostly about dystopian futures.
What follows is a list of the best-reviewed post-apocalyptic movies based on critics aggregated by Rotten Tomatoes.
The top two movies – “The Day After” (1983) and “The Road Warrior” (1981) – each received unanimous praise.
