Shockingly bleak without being sensationalistic or melodramatic. Shot in a very flat style and has a monotone narration that makes it feel almost like a documentary, which adds to the feeling of realism. The sequence when England gets nuked is particularly disturbing, with long lingering shots of corpses burning among the rubble. It's amazingly dark, and offers zero hope at the end, I can't believe they showed this on British TV in primetime...it must've scared the shit out of people.

Depressed, scared and messed me up for a few days. Exactly as was intended. The fact that the movie is a bit older only added to the surreal vibe of this nightmarish scenario. If you like unending bleakness, you'll love Threads. I know I did.

Anyone who secretly harbors a desire to live in a post-apocalyptic wasteland à la Mad Max should watch this and come to their senses. Threads is grim, but alas, extremely realistic. And it doesn't matter that the acting, direction or special effects aren't much to speak of, for you won't think about them for as much as a second once the bomb explodes (which, admittedly, is perhaps a bit too far into the movie).

And this was actually shown on TV? Damn... About as bleak & horrifying as any fiction film ever. The rudimentary but ferociously well implemented docudrama style works to hammer home this severely nihilistic & miserable narrative about the utter colapse of society. Although generally well made it has some issues mostly inherent to the TV docudrama format itself. None of them really hinder its immediate power though & I can pretty much guarantee it will make you feel profoundly upset & insecure.

A great, grim and utterly nightmarish post-nuclear strike dramatization that left me scarred for eternity. It's something everybody should see at least once.
