    In my opinion #1 on movies is Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Reason: it used mostly practical effects and it realistically shows us what a nuke would do to a city and people. That is absolutely terrifying.

    I think the scariest one was the one that you could not see in the movie "By dawns early light" the airplane scene. You know what happened but that perspective scared me. It is more the fear for me of what a nuke can do than actually seeing one blow up

    Where's True Lies?????
    And while we never actually see an explosion, there has never been a nuclear bomb film as terrifying (and poignant for its date of release) as 1964's "Fail Safe" - still a gripping watch today. Add 1959's brilliant "On the Beach", and it could be said that the best nuclear-Armageddon movies did not include a nuclear detonation....
