And now we’ve come to the 70’s.  There is just something cool about the movies made during that time and the post-apocalypse genre was really coming into it’s own.  We were now moving a bit away from the standard Atom Bomb and the Mutated Monster and beginning to portray a society that had devolved into barbarism and ruin.  The movies started becoming more violent and edgy and having either a sole individual or a group of people fighting for their life.  Some of the movies retained a simpleness of the 50’s and 60’s, while others (like Zardoz and Wizards) got “a little out there”.
