Atomic. Bacterial. Chemical.

I found this scene to be somewhat sinister, perhaps a hangover from growing up under the shadow of a potential third world war during the 80s. The mannequin with its gas-mask and rubber gloevs reminiscent of a scene from countless post-apocalyptic dramas.

The title of today’s post is nicked from the 2000AD comic strip, ABC Warriors.

The place I grew up
Was the scene of the film “Threads”
‘Twas scary as hell.

Sinister
