A remake was done by an Australian director with an Australian cast. Stars Armand Assante, Bryan Brown, Rachel Ward and Jacqueline MacKenzie.

I would have to say that this would be my favourite movie\mini-series because of its utter uniqueness. The hero doesn't save the day when they go off to find a radiation free place, and realisticly, there is no happy ending, the human race becomes extinct.

This was the most chilling movie I have ever seen, it had me shivering from the shocking realization that this was an all too possible end - Nuclear Winter. I was glued to the TV for the past two nights, I highly reccommend it should you ever see it available on video.
