The Quiet Earth

In this Kiwi sci-fi classic, scientist Zac Hobson (played New Zealand great, Bruno Lawrence) awakens to discover that he many 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...

Released in 1986 The Quiet Earth was a critically acclaimed award winner in New Zealand, while in America it became a cult classic - described by the LA Daily as "simply the best science-fiction film of the '80s".
