The Day After (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on April 25, 2006

I haven’t seen this since it originally aired.  I remember all the hype about it, how realistic and disturbing it would be, and don’t let your kids watch it alone, etc.  I could have sworn the film ended with a shot of a mutated baby, but now I realize I got it mixed up with the ending of the V miniseries.  The effects are pretty bad, but the hair and makeup people went hog wild.  The dialogue and acting are mostly godawful, and make it a dead giveaway as a TV movie.  I thought the scenes of the missiles being launched were unsettling, what a surreal sight that would be.  Otherwise, kind of subpar… too much sappy music, also.  Rating: 5
