    watched it the other week, and yes you are right it was chilling and almost word for word as to what we are seeing right now. When you consider it was made NINE years ago it makes you very scared about what else may be on the horizon.

    One of my big worries is when they get civil disturbance in the USA. If the armed militias start kicking off against the national guard...

    There is a slim risk of it descending into almost a civil war out there.

    Are you talking about zombies or terminator...

    Joking aside I for one took great comfort from the fact our children don't seem to be at as high a risk in this outbreak.

    To be fair, the reason so many are buying guns is out of fear of other people, robberies etc.

    It’s such a different culture over there, such a high proportion of the population carry guns, more than I ever realised until I saw it for myself

    Not sure at any time a gun is an essential item to purchase. Hope they stocked up on milk, eggs and bread too.

    Just incredible the comparisons. People are supposed to make films to dramatise a past real life event. Not the other way around.
