Storyline

Newly married and pregnant couple Bill and Kerry have just moved out to the suburbs of Boston to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. One night they are awoken from a quiet slumber by their neighbor Ted who is frantically sealing his house. Bill turns on the radio to discover that a dirty bomb has be detonated in Boston and the prevailing winds are carrying the nerve agent their way. Bill rushes to find the Emergency Preparedness Kit he prepared at the recommendation of Ready.gov and begins to seal his house. They awake the next morning to find they are completely cut off from the outside world. With no way to know what is going on outside, should they fear the nerve agent or each other?

Rather chilling...
17 February 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a particularly scary film because the terror in this film isn't some ridiculous guy in a hockey mask or zombies but something seemingly much more possible. The film begins with a couple hearing that terrorists have detonated a chemical weapon and so they dutifully tape up all their windows and hunker down until they get the all clear signal. However, it just doesn't seem to come and the film shows the progression of the couple's humanity as the emergency continues. At first, they are cautiously optimistic and by day 14, they are ready to kill each other! At day 17, the wife figures a way out of this mess.

The film does a good job of tapping into the darkness of human nature. While there is swearing and violence, it is really necessary as the couple become more and more savage and fearful of death. Excellent, though I did think that perhaps day 17 did seem a bit quick for the denouement.
