Massive Retaliation (1984)

How bad is it? I started thinking of what order I wanted to kill the people in it. (Pretty bad)
Should you see it? No way.

This film was released only on videotape (and Beta, at that) in the U.S., but there's a UK import on DVD. Three couples, upon hearing the possibility of nuclear war, head to their survivalist bunker. Their kids have some trouble getting there. There's one moment of entertainment, involving a search for a water pump, otherwise this is stilted political jargon piled on top of cliched characters overacting and a plot that's been done infinitely better several times elsewhere. Apparently, it's not a big deal to lose a child or two. This film probably still exists because it was the first film of Bobcat Goldthwait, who plays Redneck #2.
