Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Quiet Earth (1985) Zac Hobson wakes up to find that he is apparently the only person left on Earth. Soon, however, he meets others - Joanne, a pretty young woman, and Api, a huge Maori tribesman. They survived the apocalypse (a malfunction of a government project in which Zac was involved) because all three were at the moment of death--Zac's attempted suicide, Joanne's exploding hair dryer, Api fighting with another man--when the apocalypse occurred. Soon, however, Zac and Api begin fighting over Joanne, and the trouble begins...

Movie Quote(s):
  • [Aiming a shotgun at a crucifix] Zac Hobson: If you don't come out I'll shoot the kid!
  • [recording his audio log] Zac Hobson: Zac Hobson, July 5th. One: there has been a malfunction in Project Flashlight with devastating results. Two: it seems I am the only person left on Earth.
  • Api: You coming? Joanne: I wouldn't ride with you if you were the last man on Earth. Api: I'm workin' on it.
  • Zac Hobson: I've been condemned to live.
  • [speaking to a cardboard cut-out of Adolf Hitler] Zac Hobson: Look, I haven't got time to talk to you, I'm a very busy man! Besides, you've had your turn...
Movie Trivia:
  • The scene where Bruno Lawrence is aimlessly wandering the empty streets of the city blowing on a saxophone was an in-joke to those who knew him, as he had once stolen one when he was young, but later felt guilty and returned it.
  • The vehicle that Joanne (Alison Routledge) steals when she goes after Zac and Api is a Holden Torana LJ (1972-73).
  • The white Toyota Hilux pickup truck that Zac drove was one of two brand-new 4wd trucks that Toyota of New Zealand gave to the production.
  • The air crash was filmed at an abandoned fertilizer factory.
  • Producer Sam Pillsbury's sister was responsible for trucks and other vehicles and setting them up the crashes that Zac sees.
