War Game is a docudrama about the effects of a nuclear war on the general public. And it is horrifying. Not as good as the 1980's movie Threads (which is highly recommended) it still gives the viewer a chill.

The genius of Peter Watkins is staggering. The War Game is the scariest movie you'll ever see.
