Post Apocalyptic Madness!!!

So, I've always been a fan of movies depicting the end of the world, or what comes afterwards. The Road Warrior is without a doubt right there my top 3 greatest movies ever made (locked in a never ending struggle with Once Upon a Time in the West and John Carpenter's The Thing). After The Road Warrior came out, the Italian Film industry did what it does best, and made a whole slew of insane/shitty/absolutely amazing knock-off films. I've been looking at a lot of the old vhs cover art for some of these gems lately, and figured I'd share some of the best I could find. Here's to hoping the post apocalypse comes soon!

Endgame (1986)
If only every movie was amazing as this cover looks.

Stryker (1983)
Apparently this one "Pulsates With Vibrant Life"

Robot Holocaust (1986)

1990: Bronx Warriors (1982)
The fact that the guy who wrote this expected world to be like this in only 8 years is insane.

2019: After the Fall of New York (1983)

Warlords of the 21st Century (1982)

The New Barbarians (1982)
One of my favorite movies ever

Wheels of Fire (1985)

2020: Texas Gladiators (1982)

thanks for this post.
i think it was from New Barbarians l iearnt the word Motherfuckers and repeated it for my own post-apocalyptic car game. I didn`t really understand why my older sister thought it was so funny as i thought it was just a funny made-up name from the bleak future.
