COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN POST # 6 (66)
THE DAY AFTER (1983)
As frightened as I was, nothing could have prepared me for the second film that came to my television screen not long after. This film came from Britain and was called Threads. It was a more realistic, gritty portrait of what awaited us all if our leaders pushed the button. I have never watched it since seeing it on TV, and unless I want to enjoy having post-apocalyptic dreams for weeks, I don't plan on watching it anytime soon. But if you have never seen it, you should.
