Anyone Remember That TV Movie, "The Day After?" Here's Its Attack Scene

Submitted by: thezigrat 6 months ago in Entertainment Science


Who remembers "The Day After," the 1983 made-for-TV starring Jason Robards and Steve "The Gutte" Guttenberg. 

All the death and horror shown in this 1980's anti war film turned out to be the most exciting part of this whole movie as it tried to say those who died in the attack were the lucky ones.

I remember being quite impressed by this when I first watched it, then I saw the UK film Threads and that was even darker. I do have a morbid fascination with nuclear war.

I recollect this motion picture it was not inquired about one seen they demonstrate all the radiation executed creatures and everything you can hear is the humming of the bugs. Techdata On the off chance that the radiation can slaughter a 800lb cow every one of the creepy crawlies over the ground would be dead and in addition every one of the general population.

I remember this movie it was not very well researched one seen they show all the radiation killed animals and all you can hear is the buzzing of the insects. If the radiation can kill a 800lb cow all the insects above ground would be dead as well as all the people.

I remember the hype leading up to it and then watching it.  It was a good movie, especially for TV.  But it didn't have the anti-nuke effect on the viewing public that people thought it would.

This is how my generation grew up. Knowing 'when' not 'if' there is  a nuclear war.  Psychiatrists and others did a lot of study on the effect of that fear on a generation .

I was young when this came out and my dad let me see it -- when my mom found out, she flipped out at him for exposing me to "mature subject matter." I remember being freaked out by it -- mom, was right -- I probably shouldn't have seen it at that age. I was worried about a nuclear war for years after.
