I remember everybody was talking about that movie when it first aired back then. Freaked a lot of impressionable, young minds out, mine included. I was 13.

ETA
I own about 10 DVDs, this is one of them. I have yet to watch it though

I just looked for it, but I am in AZ. So Post Impact is on in an hour, and then The Day After. What say you, worth watching, either one?

I wonder if they'll run Commodore 64 commercials?

I was infatuated with the movie when it came out on TV; I video taped the broadcast & I still have it on the shelf.

I guess I was one of those young, impressionable minds who didn't laugh at it...lemme see, I'm going to be 50 this year, let's do the math...I was 27 years old? Maybe it's because I still remember those old CD drills- 'Duck and Cover!!!!'

Dated 1980's movie. Fun to watch, I was 15 when the movie was shown on broadcast TV. The hype/hysteria was unbelievable back then.

A better movie than Post Impact. Maybe tape it and watch it when you have time to kill.

From IMDB

www.imdb.com/title/tt0085404/plotsummary
Plot Summary for
The Day After (1983) (TV)

The frightening story of the weeks leading up to and following a nuclear strike on the United States. The bulk of the activity centers around the town of Lawrence, Kansas.

It is the mid-1980s. An aggressive Soviet leadership orders troops marched to the border of West Berlin, and then decides to invade West Germany with multiple armored tank & troop divisions. In Lawrence, Kansas - on the border with Missouri - a family is preparing for the wedding of their eldest daughter, and Dr. Oakes (Jason Robards) is keeping busy in his role as chief of surgery in the small University Hospital at Lawrence. These people go on with their daily lives but are drawn closer to the possibility of a nuclear war, as the Russians use a nuclear ballistic missile against a West German city, and then attack a U.S. warship in the Persian Gulf. The Americans strike back by hitting a Soviet ship, and then the Russians hit NATO regional headquarters with a nuclear warhead! People start creating makeshift fallout shelters in their basements, but many are caught off guard when, 1 at a time, nuclear missiles are launched from their silos along the Kansas - Missouri border. USAF officers then announce that 300+ ICBMs are inbound to the U.S., and 2 of them strike Kansas City, Missouri! Many are killed outright, but still more must face the danger of radioactive fallout. Now, the characters we follow are living in a barren, devastated world - devoid of electricity, safe drinking water, and food - and filled with radioactivity, starvation, and disease...in the horrific aftermath of 'The Day After'...

That movie needed less talking and more glowing in the dark.

checking it out. Looks like it may be a little slow paced for myself

Just for those that don't know or remember, this "movie" was made for TV and written by the typical Libs/Commies.

I love the hair styles and clothes.


Ahhh, yes, the 80's!! I wish they had a character that was wearing "parachute" pants!!

See the look on Steve Guttenberg's face when he got in the truck and saw the gun in the gun rack?
