Survival after an atomic holocaust
11 April 2001 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

What starts out as another typical day in the life of the Mitchell family turns into a nightmare when a nuclear bomb is dropped on New York City, fifty miles from the Mitchell home. A horrifying story of the aftermath of the nuclear attack unfolds in this gripping dramatisation. This movie made during the time of Cold-War-paranoia of the 1950s – providing the viewer with the disturbing vision of a nuclear holocaust – would make a good double bill with the 1983 movie `The Day After'. Watch out for a very young Walter Matthau!!!
