This Is the End Proves Florida Is the Apocalypse
In This Is the End, Seth Rogen, James Franco, and a handful of other famous funny people find themselves in the middle of the End Times. After the good people of the world ascend into Heaven via a Star Trek-esque blue beam, everyone else -- including pretty much every Hollywood actor you can name -- struggles to survive amid one seriously supernatural disaster.
Though the movie is set in L.A., the landscape of its final days looks a lot like, well, Florida. Here's how this summer's stoner movie proves that the Sunshine State truly is Hell on Earth.
1. It all starts with a sinkhole.
Kind of like this one that opened up in Tampa this past March:

5. Suddenly: Giant reptiles!
Bow down and appease your python overlords now, Florida.
6. And finally -- spoiler alert -- cannibals.
This Is the End opens in Miami this Wednesday, June 12.
