Description

Apart from well-established Hollywood blockbusters that imagine the end of the world, there is a new wave of zombie narratives and independent films about Armageddon that were released around the predicted Maya calendar’s apocalypse in 2012. This volume offers an overview of the depiction of the Apocalypse in film past to present, and the essays discuss how the films reflect social anxieties that are linked to economic, ecological, and cultural factors.
