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.
The surname of the family, Milgram, refers go the Milgram test of obediance to authority, a theme dominant throughout the film. It is also revealed that the family resides on Stanford street, a reference to the Stanford Prison experiment which studied similar themes of perceived power and authority. See more »
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 »
Good Start Poor Finish
A low budget British horror, which for 75% of the film is interesting, and thought provoking...
The main problem is the last quarter, which gives the appearance that the director ran out of ideas and budget... It becomes a 'B' movie horror with special effects straight out of 1970s Dr Who... Such a shame..
