If we would’ve ate them since the beginning, we might’ve been gorging on beetles, spiders, cockroaches etc. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Rightly said there, gaurav.

I think the actor was Charlton Heston, the same actor who starred in Omega Man. 🙂 LikeLike Yes, that one I saw. LikeLiked by 1 person The Snow Piercer was about a train that survived an ice age that continuously circle the world. The survivors inside the train were divided into some sort of a caste system where the poor were just given protein bars which turned out to be cockroaches. They rebelled and eventually crashed the train. Only two kids survived from the train crash. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person A unique plot. The kids were a boy and girl I presume so there was a possibility of a sequel? Thanks for answering so quickly. LikeLiked by 1 person Yup, it was a girl and a boy. But the ending left the audience to question whether they will live or not since there was a hungry polar bear who saw them… LikeLiked by 1 person I hope you can find out if the “soylent green” scenario that allegedly happened in russia during world war 2 was true.
