File this one under fun while it lasts, but easily forgettable.

...a cut above the majority of its direct-to-video brethren.

O mistério é mais interessante do que sua resolução; ainda assim, a cineasta consegue criar um bom clima conspiratório no melhor estilo Os Invasores de Corpos.

The census taker counts the citizens while the viewer counts the minutes.

Audience Reviews for Population 436


Somewhere between 5-6/10, this one's just about watchable. I was having a tough time when I went for it & thankfully this didn't add fuel to the fire. While it's not exactly the remake of "The Wicker Man," it surely resembles it by & large.

Just your typical small town cult movie, but it was entertaining enough.

I went into this movie not expecting much, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The story has an interesting premise and it was followed-through-with very well throughout the movie. One of the things that it really does well is that creepy, collective delusion mentality that plays such a big role in Rosemary's Baby and The Wicker Man. I even liked Fred Durst's character, which surprised me as much as anyone. In fact, I found him even more sympathetic than the main character, who time and time again gives ol' Fred the shaft. I tell you, Mr. Durst really gets no respect whatsoever. Ennihoo, there are little touches in this movie that really caught my attention, the most notable of which is the way the townsfolk treat those of thier numbers that see and bristle at the cracks in their village's creepy facade. Indeed The Fever is a horrific malady. I'd say more, but I'm so afraid of ruining the movie.
