The Quiet Earth
Directed by Geoff Murphy
Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence, As Time Goes By), a scientist working on a pioneering energy project, wakes up one morning to find that the technology has malfunctioned, leaving him as seemingly the only man left on earth. As Zac wanders the deserted city of Hamilton, New Zealand, hoping to find some remnant of life besides himself, his mind begins to disintegrate until fantasy and reality blur together in a heady, terrifying cocktail.
A scientist is seemingly the only man left on earth in this eerie, essential vision of the post-apocalypse.
Cast: Bruno Lawrence, Alison Routledge, Pete Smith
I really enjoyed this one. It's a "thinker", not the usual non-stop carnage movie. Great ending too.
Great classic SciFi. A welcome change of pace from what you normally find on Shudder. More stuff like this is always welcome.
Great science fiction film. Pre black mirror.
