Even if you think you’ve seen every single post-apocalyptic movie and TV show in existence, there are always a few that slip under the radar. But what if those shows aren’t even real in the first place?
Thanks to the site Nestflix.fun, there’s now a compendium of fake movies, TV shows, documentaries, cartoons, and game shows that appeared within another film or show down the line. And much to our amusement, there’s a whole section for post-apocalyptic media as well.
Nestflix is made to closely mimic Netflix, right down to the categories and “You Might Also Like” suggestions. It’s a brilliant site that can easily swallow up a few hours of your day… so make sure you only view it at work.
Browsing through the site, I compiled a list of the best post-apocalyptic fakes listed. It is important to note that Nestflix’s catalogue isn’t 100% complete yet and they’re always looking to expand. The site has become so popular that they’ve actually temporarily closed submissions while they catch up with new entries. Now that’s a good problem to have!
Follow along below for the list of best (fake) post-apocalyptic films and TV shows from the site in no particular order:
