End of the World
We live in truly odd times, so why not ride the wave and tack on some additional existential dread with cinema's various takes on the end of the world. From the calm, grim acceptance of On the Beach to the shrieking takeover of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (pictured) to the playful road trip in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, we all handle oblivion a little differently.

Directed by William Peter Blatty
Supernatural Horror - Rated R - 110 Minutes - 1990
William Peter Blatty, author of The Exorcist, directed this intriguing, deliberately-paced thriller based on his novel Legion. Ignoring the events of Exorcist II: The Heretic, the film moves ahead 15 years from the end of the original, when Georgetown is being plagued by occult murders bearing signs of the long-dead Gemini Killer. Worth it for the iconic hospital hallway scene alone. (Available on Prime Video, Crackle and Shudder)
