Friday Flashback: The Quiet Earth

34 years later, this remains one of the most unsettling movies I’ve ever seen.

  1. What occurred to me long ago watching this was that the “survivors” might have been tossed into an alternate/duplicate someplace, and everyone else not at the point of death might (or might not) still be someplace else. The last scene suggests something like this. The “everyone dies but those already at the point of death” is messy, as people at the point of death usually have to deal with all the bad (physical) things that got them there. Would the people is hospice come wandering out wondering where their nurses were, or still laying in their beds, with death slightly postponed?
