Goofs

David took a 12 volt/6 cell battery out of the 1970s Chevrolet Blazer, and replaced it with a 6 volt/3 cell battery. A 6 volt system can usually be used with a 12 volt battery in an emergency, but not the opposite. Only vehicles made before the '60's use 6 volt electrical systems. See more »

Deborah Anders: [after finding someone's clothes on a car seat and some white powder] It was a nuclear war...
Steven Anders: They're dead, c'mon.
Deborah Anders: [going into hysterics] There was a nuclear war! And they're all dead!

Deserving of True Cult Status!
24 July 2003 | by (New York, N.Y.) – See all my reviews

I was eight years old when I saw this movie (actually I saw it once again about a year after I first saw it). Anyway, I have NEVER forgotten it. The image of the clothes laying inside a car was one scene that ALWAYS stuck with me. BUT, I never knew the name of the movie. And for years I lived with this movie in my head never knowing it's name. Until about five years ago, a friend and I were talking about weird movies when I happened to mention this one. I told him about the clothes and that it starred Peter Graves. He said very nonchalantly.."oh..'Where Have All the People Gone'". OH-MY-GOD. I couldn't believe he remembered it too. This was one of the eeriest, scariest and realistic movies I've ever seen. The sense of the survivors desolation was palpable. The feeling of dread it instilled in me was incredible. Why don't they put out a whole bunch of these great 70's TV movies out on DVD? There's a huge market for this. Great to see so many people remember it like I did. If you liked the Twilight Zone, you'll like this one.
