Verbatim Box Synopsis
THREADS ...the story of global, thermonuclear war and its aftermath.
An unthinkable horror that has been put on film in one of the most powerful statements ever made.
Accurate. Scientifically factual. Shockingly realistic. This is drama like nothing ever seen before. 
Threads. The fragile fiber that connects each and every man, woman and child of us. Destroyed. Gone!
Can you possibly imagine such devastating finality?
Don't even try.
See it. Because the closest you ever want to come to atomic war is Threads.

  1. Was going to do a review of this, and some other post apocalyptic films, for my YouTube channel.

    Despite having seen this before, ended up switching off about half way through as it was so depressing I just couldn't make it to the end.
