    Even when this movie was made it was inaccurate and full of holes. It was made to scare people and it did. Today it`s not even as scary as an episode of `The Walking Dead`.

    Like @CrakrJak said: it`s purpose was to scare people into hating all things "nuclear". Remember that the "anti-nuclear" campaign against cruise missiles and stuff was very common back then.
    It`s just sad that people are SO STUPID they equate nuclear bombs with nuclear power, and now we have wars over oil! Yay!

    I watched this way back then on TV, it was OK but purely fictional, not "super realistic" like the hype was claiming.

    Perhaps I`ll watch it again, and "Threads" thanks@Godamndevil!
    Go-damn-devil? God-MAN-Devil (with a typo in "man")??

    @5Cats, youre right , it was meant to scare you into an anti nuclear opinion,,they showed it in our chemistry class under the guise of a lesson on fission....LOL

    (A lot of places wont allow a second "d" as in Goddamndevil, but they will allow Godamndevil..go figure. I do like the "man" alternative.)

    @Arcval yes very relevant, I remember as a kid seeing The Day After thinking it was a little depressing, then I saw threads, and was like damn that was hard core, for a 12 year old anyway.

    5Cats: Yes, it was an anti-nuclear propaganda film, but not just against bombs. It`s part of the reason we don`t have more nuclear power plants in America.

    What infuriates me are the `Green` eco-nuts that demand we stop burning coal and stop using crude oil, but also get their panties in a twist over building clean nuclear power plants.

    Wind, Solar and Hydro power can`t ever reliably meet our current power needs, let alone allow for the growth we will soon need for more electricity.

    I`ve linked to and posted information about the thorium fuel cycle and it`s promise of cheap, reliable, safe and low-radiation power. We already have the technology to build them, no big scary looking cooling towers will be needed, neither will there be a need for huge containment vessels. Thorium is cheap and plentiful and the `waste` has a short half-life and is not dangerous.

    Graduated from KU in 1984 and was in several crowd scenes. I had a line but it was cut.
