TITLE: THE DAY THE WORLD ENDED

The apocalypse on a budget


DAY THE WORLD ENDED

DIRECTOR: Roger Corman
YEAR: 1956

Roger Corman's first of three end-of-the-world films (see also TEENAGE CAVEMAN and THE LAST WOMAN ON EARTH) features an unlikely band of atomic war survivors combating monsters and each other. Mike 'Touch' Connors steals the movie as a gangster trying to work all the angles of the post-apocalyptic landscape. The movie's pressbook asserts that radioactive mutations of the sort depicted in the film "could happen."
