New this month Corrected entry: Giving a newborn oxygen would be a big, possibly deadly mistake. (00:55:45)


New this month Correction: Not really a movie mistake. You could argue both that the father did not know this and that he didn't think there was any other choice.

Corrected entry: The parents set up fireworks as a noise distraction but this has to be triggered remotely, away from the house. Surely there are other ways that noise traps can be set which can be triggered easily from the house. Or from a remote control. They have plenty of electricity.

Correction: You also have to take into account the construction of such other traps. Any amount of welding, wiring, and contraption construction would be excessively difficult to do silently. Use a hammer, the creatures come. Turn on a welder, the creatures come. Test your electronics to make sure they work, the creatures come. The way the set it up with those fire works, where as not exactly easy or super practical, is probably one of the only ways they could even set up such a sound distraction system without triggering the creatures to hear them setting it up and come to them then.

Corrected entry: How did the Death Angel reach the basement while it got flooded? It seems to have magically appeared, and never took the staircase.

Correction: We never see how it gets in, but it seems to just sort-of be poking and looking around when Everylyn wakes up, so in all probability it just found the opening above and crawled down inside to check the room out. Just because we don't see how it got down doesn't make it a plot-hole.


Corrected entry: Though the film takes place over many months, the crops in the field near the house never seem to change appearance.

Correction: Actually, after 89 they skip to Day 472 and then, it's just 2 full days of action. So, I don't think farm appearance is a mistake here.

The corn wouldn't still be green after more than a year in the field. And they couldn't have planted earlier that same year, as the noise would have attracted the aliens.

Corrected entry: If the aliens are sensitive to sound, and a simple high pitch sound can distract and hurt their hearing, the army could have figured this out long ago and defeated them with ease.

Correction: Apparently, it was a specific frequency that they were sensitive to, which was discovered by the dad while he was attempting to make a working hearing aid for his daughter.

Corrected entry: Although it has been 450 days, the wife has a calendar to track her pregnancy. Who printed that calendar if it has been more than a year since the demise of civilization?

Correction: You can buy multi-year calendars or calendars for future years easily in stores or online. Just did a quick search, and there are plenty of places where you can get calendars for 2020, 2021, 5-year calendars starting from now, etc. even though it's only 2018.


Corrected entry: When the power to the Abbotts' home goes out, the hundreds of colored lights and all of the cameras and monitors in the basement continue to work normally. This would have required either a really large generator (which would have made noise) or an incredible number of backup batteries, which weren't available to them.

Correction: The movie takes place in 2021, and it may be assumed the the house is running on solar batteries.

Lee Abbott: I love you. I've always loved you.



Grain engulfment is not depicted in a scientific manner. It is not possible for engulfment to happen without a valve being opened at the base - which has not been shown in the movie when the boy falls in the grain storage. It is very unlikely that two engulfments will happen so close by in the same storage - if so, they will converge quickly. But, the movie shows both victims help each other one by one. They succeed in 5-10 seconds. Engulfment become entrapment in less than 20 seconds and require more than thrice the body weight to pull some one out (unlike one kid being able to pull other one out while both are on the grain). Finally, they both sit on the door and avoid entrapment.



There are only 90 lines of dialogue in the entire film.
