I guess this goes in here since it involves a family in a house, during a 12hr period of no emergency help for one night a year.

I assume most would stay home, but I'm sure a few guys would go out and try to help others maybe?

I'd probably hit the woods for a few days. If not baracade and defend the apartment.

OK I just now watched the vid.

I would gear up and fortify my position.

No prisoners.

I would hunker down only cause I have family, so that is my poll answer. Yet if I could gather a group of 6-12 guys I would go out and save a lot of the homeless or those who get caught after dark. Like a mother who has no car trying to make it home from the bus stop.

Funny how the kid asked his parents "how come you guys don't kill anyone" lol.

There people out there who would welcome this so they can go after people they do not like. 8pm to 8am I suppose this takes place during that time. Maybe 6/7pm-6/7am.

Until my girls came along, I would have found out how good the army trained me, now I would lock the place up and will not say what would happen to anyone getting through!

Interesting concept. I'd definitely go see this movie. I hope they show what people are doing instead of just focusing on the guy getting in the house and what happens afterwards.

What I would do? Hunker down. Nobody in, nobody out.

The premise looks absurd but I love Lena Headey! Her presence makes almost anything worth a watch. I guess to answer the hypothetical [if absurd] question, I'd probably hole up in my house and lock the doors. I'd be cocked & locked and ready to rock! Probably gather all the family into one place, but only after making sure I was on their good side!

This appears to be a screenplay written by a juvenile.

Sorry, it just doesn't do it for me.

In that sort of scenario it seems like going out would almost result in imminent death.

I feel like I would treat it like any other bug out situation. Get out of the crowded area as quick as possible and have whatever you need to defend you and your own. All I know is that I for sure would not stay in my suburban home if this was the case.

It would be nice to know more of the premise of the movie, which I can't seem to find anywhere. Why is there this 12 hour period every year where it's acceptable? If crime is so low why make it okay for this one night?

Guess call the crew together with all our combined weapons and bunker up.
