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.

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.

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.

Levins' photography is beautiful as always, even when he has clearly had very little time to set up.
