Apocalypse Within Film, and Apocalypse Through Film
Film is a huge part of the many types of media people take in every day. In a culture so addicted to technology, movies, tv shows, and video games almost become real life to us. We get emotionally involved in the lives of characters we see on screen, and we lose ourselves at the movies. We get sucked into the made-up world being presented to us. Movies make us laugh, cry, sit on the edge of our seats, and hide our eyes. There is no denying that any type of media, specifically film, has an enormous effect on the life of a viewer. So naturally, the horrifying ideas being put into the heads of "apocalypse movie" viewers create an overwhelming sense of paranoia among the masses.
