The idea of the deserted town being used as a nuke test site and someone finding themselves in it.

I remember it being use on a TV show, I thought it was a Twilight Zone but it might have been an Outer Limits episode. It was used in a episode of iirc The Champions and also in an episode of Crime Story.

(checked - can't find an Outer Limits story about this afterall...defo saw the idea used somewhere ina TV show but cannot remember where)

It (Trinity) was also used as a location in Weaveworld by Clive Barker


Edit - I think it was The Great and Secret Show not Weaveworld.

It's annoying isn't it? We never think we're going to wish we'd remembered these things when we grow up. There was another great short story about some kids in India skipping school

I've asked this several times and never had a response but since a few people here have seen the twilight zone/outer limits I guess I can ask again: I remember seeing a film/tv show when I was really young, mid/early 80's. It was black and white and on ITV, probably on a saturday morning. Anyway a man is in a house somewhere, maybe he is trying to kill the owner or maybe he's a burglar. The interesting thing is, the house is a sort of trick, and every time he opens a door, it triggered some pulley system which altered the room he was in so next time he went through that room it appeared to be a different room. This made it impossible to leave the house since he could never find the room he started in. It's a bit like the film "Cube" and one of the dungeons in "Zelda: Ocarina of Time"
