Scientist Zac Hobson (a powerhouse performance by Bruno Lawrence of Frontline) awakens to discover that he may be the last man on earth. Homes, highways and entire cities are deserted, every living thing has disappeared. Frustrated and plagued by megalomaniacal visions, Zac stands on a balcony and grandly addresses an `audience' of cardboard standups (from Queen Elizabeth to Bob Marley), declaring himself `President of this quiet earth'. But Hobson soon discovers that he may not be alone...
Receiving huge critical acclaim, and winning 8 New Zealand film awards, this compelling sci-fi thriller has been rightly compared to The Twilight Zone for its chilling portrayal of a barren, post-apocalyptic world from which there is only one means of escape.
Please note this 1985 movie is rated M.
