Blog: Threads – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Holy shit.  Threads is purely and simply one of the most realistic and terrifying films I have ever seen in my life. Hands down.  After 30 years, this film is still a deeply disturbing picture of life after the bomb drops – endlessly gruesome, relentlessly depressing and lacking the cheap emotional  tricks of Hollywood, Threads is probably unlike any film I’ve ever seen.  A must see.  But be in a good mood first…

Best Bit: After 30 ye`are it’s still massively impactful.
