About the Movie

In this sci-fi cult classic, Zac Hobson, a mid-level scientist working on a global energy project, wakes up to a nightmare. After his project malfunctions, Zac discovers that he may be the last man on Earth. As he searches empty cities for other survivors, Zac’s mental state begins to deteriorate, culminating in the film’s iconic and hotly debated ending.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It has the usual huggermugger about tremors and grids and the sun acting peculiarly, plenty of computer screens and significant beeps... – Walter Goodman, New York Times, Dec 15, 2017

Fresh: The awe-inspiring final image in the film (of another daybreak, echoing the film's opening) is similarly slippery, catching Zac on a liminal, limbic shoreline between multiverse cosmology and hard eschatology. – Anton Bitel, Little White Lies, Jun 26, 2018

Fresh: [A] strange, vivid movie. – Tom Keogh, Seattle Times, Sep 29, 2016

Customer Reviews


This movie takes quite a departure from the book, but not in a bad way. In a nutshell, it's very like something from the old Twighlight zone series.
