MIRACLE MILE (1988)
Miracle Mile is a quirky thriller about the pending apocalypse in Los Angeles. The film stars Anthony Edwards (ER) and Mare Winningham (St. Elmo's Fire) and features a great score by Tangerine Dream. Director Steve De Jarnatt had previously helmed Cherry 2000, another 80's kult klassic.
What makes this flick special is its unusual pacing, its bizarre sense of humor, and the apocalyptic third act, which is still kind of terrifying.
