Well, what do you know? Just three days after complaining about the price of copies of Threads on eBay, somebody in Canada put up a ‘buy it now’ copy for just under 12 quid! It’s definitely worth persevering for the right price, it seems! I’ll have to post a review here after I’ve seen it again…watch this space.
Many years ago, I stayed up watching TV slightly later than usual with mum and dad and happened to see Threads. It must have completely scared the crap out of me as I can still remember scenes quite vividly – the woman wetting herself in the street as she sees a mushroom cloud rise over Sheffield and people running all over the place and the burning body of what looked like ET!
