    This film has a cult following that is surprisingly strong considering how few people in the U.S. have even had the chance to see it. I know of several people who only saw it in the theater back in 1985, but still have vivid, positive memories of it. It is an exceptional "Last Man on Earth" film by director Geoff Murphy and came out of New Zealand in 1985. Bottom line, it is one of the finest Sci-Fi films I have ever seen.

    I would also love to see this on DVD too. A much underrated and intelligent sci-fi film.

    The Quiet Earth is a terrific film that I would enthusiastically recommend to any fan of thoughtful, speculative SF. I would love to have the opportunity to add this film to my collection.

    Count me in, as well. Quiet Earth was one of my favorite films when I saw it way back in the day. I have been waiting patiently for this movie to make it's debut on DVD. Hope it is soon!
    Ciao,

    Yes he does, though it is actually just a big white, house since it is set in New Zealand.

    I own an old rental copy on VHS I purchased at a Flea Market. Count me in on purchasing this one if ever released.
