Much more realistic than THE DAY AFTER, which featured Jason Robards walking from Lawrence to Kansas City after KC was struck my a nuclear attack.
Damn, I could swear I saw this in the hopper at least 3 times in the last year or so, and each time it passed. Glad to finally see it the front page.
Actually, "nightmare fuel for an entire generation" isn't really apt, since this had limited airings because of it being a super bummer and all.
Still, damn this is worth seeing.
This is pretty much my favorite movie of all time.

They showed this to some of the kids at school when we were 11.
We live in the same city.

During the last decade of the Cold War, how many innocent bubbles of teenage immortality were burst by Threads and Pee Lady?
Jesus christ, that's STILL terrifying. Mainly the "total societal collapse" part - I'm pretty sure I'd be good and dead in an actual nuclear war scenario.
An hour of tension and build-up followed by an hour of mind-numbing human suffering. I can't believe they used to make TV movies like this.
