Movie Info

Seven normal looking people struggle to survive in a grim post nuclear world in this sci-fi film, the first ever made by Roger Corman. Living in the post T.D. Day (Total Destruction Day) is difficult, for the constant blasts of radiation have caused extensive mutations of plant and animal life, the most terrifying of which is a man-eating, triple-eyed, man-like creature withy four arms, horns and telepathic powers.

Audience Reviews for Day the World Ended


Can you guess what this movie is about? Yep, the day the world ended. I think it's pretty good, but not the best end of world movie.

Flesh eating zombies done Roger Corman style. Nominated for the most ridiculous looking monster to ever grace the silver screen. A low-budget sci-fi classic for those of us who enjoy cheesy camp.
