The movie The Day After shows how a cross section of middle America; a doctor, a graduate student, a young bride to be, an academic, etc., deal with a Nuclear explosion that has hit Kansas City.  They struggle against increased radiation levels, horrific destruction, nuclear winter and the collapse of society in a valiant effort to survive. 

This movie gives a good visual, fictional representation of what life could be like after a nuclear detenation and how people’s lives are affected.  It is both disturbing, yet enjoyable at the same time.  There are no zombies in this movie but you will see how people will go to almost any lengths to survive.  This movie is definitely worth watching as you will immediately feel the impact of what the ultimate survival situation might be like.
