Agree, I posted a thread about it a couple of months ago. I remember as a kid it really freaking me out. I watched it again a couple of months ago - still freaks me out! Very gritty which is why I think it works well without all the hollywood gloss treatment! Saying that you'd have a job making Sheffield look good anyway!Threads was the single most depressing film experience of my life. It is unrelenting grim from beginning to end but it is brilliant and it was utterly terrifying when it was first broadcast.
