In September 1984, it was aired on the BBC and shocked tens of millions of UK viewers. Four months later, it was broadcast in America on TBS and became the most watched basic cable program in history.

fight war not wars, destroy power not people
Chilling!!! 💀💀💀💀💀 5 outa 5!!! Nuclear war is terrifying and this movie pulls no punches!!! This and The Day After are both must watches.
Omg. Just watch this. Frightening. True horror. You don’t have to be well rehearsed in the current state of USA conflicts with Iran and Russia to have dread come over you watching this. A review earlier calls it visceral. That’s explicitly what this viewing experience is. It’s nearly unenjoyable, but in a weird way maybe the greatest horror film of all time. The first act and the tension build up is remarkable. The real terror lies in the first act.
Overall very chilling film
