How would you handle it if you were the last person alive on the earth?This is the question posed by the Quiet Earth, also beyond this how wouldreact knowing that an action or lack of one on your part had wiped out everyliving person on the face of the earth. Scientist Zack Hobson must dealwith this reality when he wakes from his suicide attempt to find himself onthe other side of an altered reality, alone. He at first goes quite insane,blaming himself for the accident because it was caused by the malfunction ofa project that he was heading up. Later when he discovers two other"survivors" he formulates a plan that will reunite the two separatedrealities. The ending is one that will keep you thinking long after thecredits have rolled.

I first saw "The Quiet Earth" on Cinemax in the late-1980’s (everyWednesday night, Cinemax would show foreign films). Yeah…as manyother users have pointed out, this isn’t your typical sci-fi flick (nomonsters, no extended action scenes). But this movie is unique in thatway — it’s a sci-fi flick without much sci-fi in it.

Sure, "The Quiet Earth" isn’t your classic sci-fi movie…and itdefinitely is NOT for all sci-fi fans, but if you’re looking forsomething different without all of the overdone Hollywood flash, youmay want to check it out. I’m on a bit of a search thru my local DVDstores to find a copy of it, myself (I’m sure I’ll find it in one ofthe bargain bins…because I doubt any video store manager willappreciate the quality of this forgotten gem).
