** The line inspired the title and subject of Discharge's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO_hU3utEpM "The Possibility Of Life's Destruction"]] from their ''Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing'' album. (Which is pretty much all NightmareFuel from start to finish)

* This line from the narrator, which couldn't describe the sheer terror and impact of a nuclear bomb any better:
--> "The sound of the blast from a thermo-nuclear bomb has been likened to that of an enormous door slamming in the depths of hell."

* The battle between {{NATO}} and Soviet Forces. A tactical nuke is shown being fired, with the soldiers aware that this would bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The film also mentions that NATO is making plans to rely on tactical nukes in a ''conventional war.'' Therefore it was possible that ''NATO'' could be the first to strike.

--> '''Narrator''': During a recent meeting of the Ecumenical Council at the Vatican, an English and an American Bishop expressed the view that "the church must tell the faithful that they should learn to live with, though need not love, the nuclear bomb, provided that it is "clean" and of a good family."

* When it was originally filmed in 1965, Creator/TheBBC refused to air it because it was ''too horrifying'' to be shown on television. It was eventually aired in 1985, a year after Threads aired. Apparently the BBC figured that while The War Game was horrifying, it was ''less'' horrifying than Threads.

''Film/TheWarGame'' may not be as dark as ''Film/TheDayAfter'' or ''Film/{{Threads}}'', but it still has it's fair share of nightmare fuel.
