question of the day: What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?

No explanation needed: What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?

Mine is Threads, the 1983 British TV movie about an all-out global nuclear war. It’s so horrifyingly straightforward that it still gives me nightmares… and at the time that I saw it, in the 80s (it aired on PBS in the States), it was something I was far more likely to actually witness than a homicidal rampage by a hockey-mask-wearing maniac, the kind that dominated the popular movies of the day. (I wrote more about Threads a few years ago; it’s available in Region 2, but not in Region 1.)

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me.)
