I was early 20s. It freaked me out, big time... especially after partially growing up in LA and doing nuclear attack drills at school.Watching it. Heard the Frankie goes to Hollywood line. Gee, I am sad I didn't get a chance to see this when it came out. I would have been 19 at the time and loved Sci Fi stuff like this. The Triffids, Hitch-hikers, Dr Who but this is more near future.
