Love him or loathe him, Danish filmmaker Lars Von Trier can never be accused of lacking cinematic vision. His Ophelia-like ode to the end of days is a thing of bleak beauty, with a nightmarish opening sequence set to Wagner that makes it clear from the outset that Earth is locked in an inexorable collision course with the vast, blue, eponymous oncoming planet.
Handily, Bellus has a liveable orbiting planet Zyra. Based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Edwin Balmer and Philip Wylie, Paramount scooped the rights immediately with Cecil B. DeMille in mind to direct, but the project sat on the shelf for almost 20 years before the Sydney Boehm-adapted screenplay saw the light of day. While the starship refugees make it to Zyra, this one still counts as Earth itself, and countless millions, bite the stardust. They are stalked by mutated monsters and a deathly cold, ghost-like creature that appears for one hour nightly.
As the survivors are picked off one by one the final revelation shows that the battle for humanity is already lost. The bunker is revealed to be on the surface of the moon as the shattered remains of the Earth are revealed in the startling Planet of the Apes -like final shot. What with the Mad Max trilogy, soon to be quartet, Australia certainly is keen on apocalyptic visions, with Peter Weir following up his cult hit Picnic at Hanging Rock with this surreal take on the end of the world.

David Gulpilil plays the only one of the men who will speak to him. Lost at sea in a world of mysticism with which he feels uncomfortable, Burton discovers too late that an enormous tidal wave is about to obliterate mankind. Japanese director Takashii Mike is not known for his restraint, to put it mildly, with corrupt cops vs. And then, as the mayhem is ratcheted up past insane and then some, somehow the cartoonlike clash, where a pulled gun is countered with a flame-thrower, leads to the outright annihilation of Earth. Arguably one of the best remakes of all time, Philip Kaufman ratchets up the doom and gloom in this terrifying reimagining of the original film of the same name.
Starring Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Jeff Goldblum and Veronica Cartwright, this masterpiece in paranoia sees the humans of the world replaced one-by-one by pod people from outer space who subsume their prey and produce exact replicas that barely blink and cannot smile.
Canadians have a reputation for taking things easy, but the quiet calm with which humanity awaits its mysteriously unnamed end — due quite meticulously on the stroke of midnight — is faintly ludicrous. All she wants is to get home to face down the end with hubby Duncan — a surreal cameo from body horror maestro David Cronenberg.
What comes next is a hoot, full of cute character moments and kooky humour, even if the end is nigh.argo-karaganda.kz/scripts/kyryxise/331.php
Ash Tales | Stories of the Apocalypse
Haley Bennett and Juno Temple are great fun in this highly silly but thoroughly enjoyable diet-Lynchian romp full of witches, soft porn bisexual threeways, and even the second coming of the Messiah before the final extremely surreal splurge of sci-fi ends it all with the press of, you guessed it, a big red button. Director Mick Jackson pulls no punches, and nor does writer Barry Hines. A blood and vomit-soaked hospital is one of the most brutal ever committed to screen.
