Girls Just Wanna Have Fun meets I Am Legend!

Two teenage sisters survive when the rest of the population turns to dust by a passing comet; and go on a Dawn of the Dead-shopping spree in the abandoned shopping malls of L.A.!

And speaking of Dawn of the Dead; it turns out not everybody turned to dust – some became zombies instead! Oh, and there are some 80’s guys in Ray Bans. Same thing really.

Yeah, this is the ultimate movie for anybody with an 80’s fetish. We get the music, the big hairdos, the shoulder pads, material girls in a zombiefied world, cheerleaders, one-liners like: “Daddy would have gotten us Uzi’s!”, action, constant sunset city imagery…

And for those of you counting: this makes Mary Woronov’s second appearance out of three on this list!

PREVIOUS ON THE LIST: 45. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984)
