Critic Reviews for Population Zero

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

  • A novel if earnest cross-genre thriller.

    May 26, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • An ambitious next-generation spin on the found-footage genre, Population Zero starts out like an indie version of a true-crime TV news magazine and turns into a horror-tinged drama with a topical slant.

  • This low budget film is a shrewd, rebellious work of art that takes a complex idea and executes it exceptionally well. There's much to admire in its ambitious spirit.

  • Population Zero edges towards disappointing its audience, but is interesting enough in its early stages to make it a worthwhile watch, and certainly one of the better mock-documentaries you will come across.

  • The stiffness could be forgiven if the story were intriguing -- or even if Pinder and Levin were commenting on the format somehow -- but there's nothing here. I have no idea why this movie exists.

    May 25, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Eerie imagery, building suspense and a cleverly executed sense of dread help move the film along from a standard doco to having the trimmings of a straight-up horror film.
