This legendarily haunting docudrama depicts the effects of a nuclear attack on the working-class city of Sheffield, England.
Cast: Karen Meagher, Reece Dinsdale, David Brierly
A truly horrifying and very realistic vision of what a nuclear war would result in. I’ve seen some things and love horror, but this jacks me up!
This isn’t the scariest film I’ve seen, but it’s definitely the most shocking human documentary of a nuclear aftermath I’ve ever seen. See this movie at least once its a 5 skull for me.
Dull and uninteresting. I couldn't stop myself from falling asleep on several occasions while watching this. I am sure I would be pissing myself if this happened to me in real life.
