#15: When The Wind Blows (1986)
Imagine that the whole world's gone crazy, that science has opened Pandora's box, and that our planet is only a bomb or two away from becoming a desolate wasteland. If you succeed then you'll find yourself in the setting of this movie. Two elderly British people are stuck in their home, tucked neatly away in the center of a radioactive fallout zone. The sight of people who reminded me of my parents, being consumed by radiation from the inside out, and hearing the music of Roger Waters as it's soundtrack was one of the saddest things I've ever seen in my entire life. This is not a movie I'll be viewing a second time.
