I have been on nuclear war movie kick lately and have just watched The Day After and Threads.  Once I was done being terrified, especially by Threads, I started looking up information on their initial airings and found that there were hotlines and counseling centers set up to deal with people's reactions to those films and that many people remember having a change of ideals regarding the nuclear arms race when they saw them.  If you've seen one or both of these films, did they change your conception of nuclear war?  Alternatively, can you think of any more recent television specials which have had that sort of mass effect?

DK/DC: What is the most frightening film you've ever seen?
