Storyline

It's Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly - an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously: 'Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions'. As the television exerts an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.

Goofs

The group makes three mistakes with the injections, which Anji's medical training should have prevented. First, Tony, the father, injects his intravenously, which the vast majority of vaccines should not be, and one ought to assume a mystery vaccine without instructions should not be. Second, they sterilize the hypodermics in boiling water rather than alcohol, evidenced by the steam rising from the bowl, but the heat risks damaging the medicine. Third, nobody swabs their skin with alcohol, which prevents infection at the injection site. See more »

AWFUL!!!!

The cast must have been desperate for a job! Shoveling fish guts would have been a better choice! Simply awful!
