The enchanted lives of a couple in a secluded forest are brutally shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling a man into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance.
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.
Of course, you can contend that there are some plot twists that require you to stretch your beliefs a bit, but hey... this is not a documentary.
I found this movie to be thoroughly enjoyable. Nice performances from all the cast, as one has been grown to expect from brit movies in general, and even some corny stop-motion special effects fit in there snuggly.
I also find this story a very interesting hypothesis of what you might expect from religious people, should you find yourself in dire straits with one of those lunatics.
Could this movie be better? Yes: throw more money at it, and you would get better SFX and more time to polish the script. But it is definitely worth the watch.
