Threads.  Gotta be Threads.

I told my mother that the world is supposed to end today, but she said I still have to go look for a job.  Does that seem right to you?

There are so many good ones and all these are very good. I'm especially big on Mouth of Madness.  The Matrix and Terminator could easily be on this list.

But if I had to choose 1 film that took the subject seriously without any fantasy or sci/fi I have to go with The Road. True we never really know what caused it, my guess is solar flares, but that film stayed with me for days after watching it. Heck even now when I think about it depresses me, in a good way.

The Road IS expertly crafted, Wiseguy. I totally agree with your points on it. -Chuck

Demon gods:  Cabin in the Woods

Virus:  28 Days Later

Was thinking about no babies in Children of Men but a kid is born in that movie, and no sun in Sunshine but they manage to spark it back up at the end so I guess they wouldn't count.  But if they do, then add Children of Men and Sunshine to this.

Love in the Mouth of Madness but as it was mentionned, The Road kind of takes the hope out of life so badly, it's a great movie and really shows an end of a world into something very hard to imagine.

  There's a movie called Testament that might even be more depressing than The Road. It was made back in 1983, and it's set in a small town that's a 90 minute drive from San Francisco. There's a nuclear war at the beginning of the film and San Francisco is hit, but the town is far enough away that it isn't destroyed, and the rest of the film is the town slowly dying from radiation poisoning and general despair.

 

On a more positive note, a plague that wipes out 99% of the human race would leave over 70 million people alive. That's more than enough to ensure not just that the human race survives, but that our current level of civilization continues.

When you really think about it, there are just so many human beings now that you have to wonder what kind of event could wipe every one of us out (I'm not talking fantasy, I'm talking about a real, possible situation).
