One of the best ever 1980s movies AND end–of–the–world/disaster movies in–one. Great colours and lighting. The last 60 minutes play out in real–time and you are left guessing if the nuclear attack is real or not until the end. A personal favourite.
Deviates a bit from the true events it is based on. More drama than the comedy that the trailer portrays. Final minutes show horrific footage of recent KKK/neo–Nazi groups & violence (including the horrific mowing down of anti–racist protesters by a car).
An excellent 1950's style monster movie – a small town is under siege from underground giant worm–like creatures with big sharp teeth. Nice mix of suspense and comedy. Bacon & Ward & Gross are great! Spawned sequels.
