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 »

Not very good
24 February 2019 | by sgenericrSee all my reviews

I activated an old account because I just don't bother writing reviews anymore. I did this time for 2 reasons: 1) the movie really isnt very good, but more so because

2) I don't understand this aparant trend people have of talking about how stupid other reviewers are who don't like a movie, rather than just writing about why they did like it. Or vice versa really, though I've noticed it tends to mostly be the people who like something who like to discuss the great unwashed, uninformed, and unintelligent masses more than the movie they are supposedly reviewing.

Here is a tip, though I suspect most will already know this, if someone spends more time telling you why people with different opinions are stupid rather than why they support their own opinion, that person has no real opinion.
