It's not a horror movie. It was a political statement docudrama. The name of the movie was SILKWOOD and the shower scenes... still.... ::shudder::
SO here's what it is. A woman is working in a nuclear facility of some kind. All the workers exit through some sort of radiation detector (I've since seen these at a medical research facility I worked at.) Well, it goes off and she is carried away to a shower room where she is scrubbed raw by what I can only imagine was some sort of Brillo pad on a long stick. The whole time she's screaming her poor little head off.
I hope I'm not the only one who remembers this.... It's freaked me out forever.
UNK SEZ: You are not alone Little Fox! Every time Silky would go through that radiation detector I would grit my teeth! That gal got scrubbed!
