end of the world movies

Once in a while, I like to indulge my fascination with the bleaker end of science fiction, and plough through a few films (from the 60s and 70s in particular) which look - with varying degrees of hysteria - at the worst kinds of future.

Anyway, I'm on one such dystopian kick at the moment, and wondered if anyone had any recommendations for my not-especially-festive film festival?
I've just done Soylent Green and Panic in Year Zero (the latter for the first time, via a very cheap R1 release, and it's actually pretty ace!)
Next I'm on to On the Beach and The Bed Sitting Room (this is a first timer as well).

I guess most of these are bomb-oriented, but a fair few are based on environmental catastrophes and the like, so fallout isn't a prerequisite! So what am I missing? Bonus points for really obscure stuff, or anything that uses stock footage of mushroom clouds...
