I do agree with you. An interesting movie to me is "The Mist." It's based on a Stephen King story. Basically, there's a big storm and the next day the people are all gathering in the grocery store (small Maine town) to stock up or whatever. Then the wierdness hits. They are basically trapped in the store. There are horror movie aspects to it of course, but the really scary thing about the movie is the psychological factors involved. I can totally see the breakdown of civility as portrayed in the movie actually happening. There is a religious nut who whips up others into her fanatical frenzy. It happens gradually, but because of fear and hopelessness, they see her ideas as a refuge and empowerment. I'm rambling now, but basically that's the scariest part of the movie, is how the people react to the strange supernatural happenings. The humans in the movie provide the horror factor.

Since nothing else worked, those people who were stuck were forced to use the store ATM that would charge them to withdraw money. They weren't happy but they got in line and started to get the cash they needed. Until the ATM froze up.
Previously you stated that the power was knocked out......how were they using the ATM in the store if there was no power?
