DIRECTOR: Arch Oboler
The first overtly "atomic" end-of-the world film, FIVE is Arch Oboler's quietly chilling depiction of the recent aftermath of an atomic war and its effect on a quintet of survivors. One especially disturbing scene features a trip to a decimated city where civil defense sirens continue to wail.
