Basically what the title says, complete with mushroom clouds, radiation, hallucinations, pollution, famine, and -- of course -- giant bloodsucking slugs. AKA "Prophecies of Nostradamus."

Audience Reviews for Last Days of Planet Earth

½

There are some unforgettable moments in this film (an explosive freeway accident and a biker gang driving off a cliff being among the most famous), but they can't make up for a lousy script that forgoes plot and character in favor of spectacle and ham-handed moralizing

It's like the guy who invented Murphy's Law (...so probably Murphy) dropped acid, hopped a plane to Japan and, during the 18 hour flight, read a cheap paperback of Nostradamus' prophecies... and then sold his vision of "everything that can go wrong sure as hell will cause Nostradamus said so" to Toho. Yet this hallucinogenic collection of apocalyptic vignettes is strangely moving. Really weird and sad all at the same damn time.
