How about that! I unsuccessfully tried to find this thread just a few days ago. Great list.

Re: 80's Post-Apocalypse

Of the ones mentioned I have:

Mad Max
The Road Warrior
Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
Damnation Alley
Escape from New York
The Terminator
Steel Dawn
plus Nemesis
plus Metalstorm
plus The Quiet Earth
plus Testament and The Day After, for good measure

It's a decent genre if done right, if not it's horrible.

Wow, this thread was started in the '80s and is still going strong...

What about '80s pre-apocalypse films?

For those who love this subject I highly, HIGHLY recommend the recent release called Turbo Kid. It somehow captures the entire feel of those old 80's movies without being cheesy or parody.

I just watched this last night and yes it did influence the Mad Max series.

Re: 80's Post-Apocalypse

"Blood of Heroes" should be on that list. It was released in Australia in 1989 (came to the U.S. in February 1990).
