The Crazies

Question: When David is in the Hamill's house, David stabs Peggy Hamill in the neck with the knife that was already en-lodged into David's hand by Peggy's son. Peggy's blood should have seeped into David's hand wound; Why doesn't David get infected?

Chosen answer: Because he's naturally immune to the disease, just like all of the other survivors at that point.

Question: When Russell becomes infected, he tells the sheriff that he has saved him three times, yet I've seen the movie twice and saw Russell only save him two times (when he unplugs the razor machinery in the morgue and shoots a crazy through the window). Did I miss the third one?

Answer: The third time is by not shooting him right there.

Question: Why did the soldiers shoot the non-infected people in the cattle trucks? Is there something going on here that I missed? Does everybody have the virus?

Answer: At this point, the army had decided to simply kill everyone from the town, rather than risk the infection spreading and to save the time and trouble of checking whether people were infected or not.

Also, they probably wanted to contain knowledge of what they'd done. No witnesses.

Question: How come the Government soldiers didn't tell the whole town Including the sheriff what's going on when they've all been captured?

Answer: Movie governments (and real-life governments) are known to keep things from the public for their own safety, whether it's a good idea or not.

Continuity mistake: When the police car rolls out of the car wash, both passenger and driver's doors are open. When the shot changes to the deputy holding the rifle, the driver's door is closed. In the next shot both doors are open again.
