Chaos engulfs the land, swallowing humanity into darkness. Disease takes the land, swarming the cities in plagues making the air feel thick with infection. War rages as bodies pile up in droves. Fathers fight sons and nations are brought to ruin. Food is scarce and only the strongest, most violent survive. Eventually people have to turn to one another for nourishment. All of the turmoil leads to death. Earth’s population plummets. Cities turn to wastelands as pockets of civilization struggle to survive. It’s the end of times- the apocalypse.
It’s also the perfect time to watch a movie. The Cinematic Katzenjammer is proud to announce The Four Horror Movies of the Apocalypse Blogathon. This October-long event is not only inspired by but also challenges everyone to come up with four movies that define the end of it all, each representing one of the horseman of the apocalypse- Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death. Keep in mind, while the title is The Four Horror Movies of the Apocalypse, they do not necessarily need to be horror movies. Just make sure in your piece to focus on the horrific parts of the film and how it relates to each horseman. You can write reviews for each film, write a list including each horseman, pick out scenes that fit each moment, or get creative and do something entirely different. It’s the end of the world so no rules apply.
The deadline for the blogathon is Halloween, October 31. You can host your own entry and we will link to your site on our page or if you don’t have a blog and would like to contribute, we can host your entry for you. The only thing we ask when posting for the blogathon is that you use either the header image or the image below, as well as linking to this announcement post.
