The Quiet Earth – on Blu-ray on 18 June 2018

Fans of post apocalyptic movies won’t be disappointed with Arrow Video’s release of The Quiet Earth. The gorgeous Blu-ray transfer also includes new insight into the film through commentaries, video essays and interviews.

The Quiet Earth Out on Blu-Ray 18th June 2018

Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence, As Time Goes By), a scientist working on a pioneering energy project, wakes up one morning to find that the technology has malfunctioned, leaving him as seemingly the only man left on earth. As Zac wanders the deserted city of Hamilton, New Zealand, hoping to find some remnant of life besides himself, his mind begins to disintegrate until fantasy and reality blur together in a heady, terrifying cocktail.

Directed by Geoff Murphy (Under Siege 2, Freejack) and adapted from the 1982 novel of the same name, The Quiet Earth has attained cult status as one of the most distinctive post-apocalyptic sci-fi movies of the 1980s. By turns haunting, surreal and inscrutable, the film asks questions about humankind’s insatiable appetite for destruction that are arguably as prescient today as they were at the time of its release thirty years ago.
