A clever idea constrained by a limited budget......

Island Zero is a film with a clever idea that is reasonably original that's constrained by an obviously limited budget.

The story line mixes an aquatic terror concept with issues of climate change that works quite well and is intelligently executed. The acting is mixed but at its best certainly decent and by no means a "reading off score card" moment you see from some films with a limited budget and casting choices.

Regrettably though the lack of funding shows through in the nominal and rather mediocre special/creatures effects. Given the emphasis of this film too decent special effects are important and their absence is sorely missed.

Had this film had more $$ to amp up the horror quotient I think it could have really been quite good. As it stands, moderately watchable but also anti climatic. 5/10 from me.

JUnk - not even worth throwing on for background noise

I liked the premise of the movie and went in not expecting much more than a crap movie, I wasn't surprised. Bad acting all around. Bad cinematography. Plot holes, and horrible music. Ridiculous ending, Don't waste your time

Solid if slightly problematic low-budget

Following several strange incidents, the residents of a small island off the coast of Maine find themselves cut off from the rest of civilization and being hunted down by a ravenous sea creature intended to be used in a military experiment and must get away from the creatures alive.

This one ended up being a solid low-budget indie creature feature. That is built mainly on the wholly intriguing main premise of the film that makes for a lot of potential fun to be had. This one really works itself into a nice groove at the beginning where it slowly features the eventual buildup of their lives on the island, from the residents who make a living on the sea to the different potential romances brewing and how that gets interrupted by the serious implications on the outside of the storyline. This creates an effective atmosphere throughout here where the creatures closing in on the community by being responsible for their situation and creates both intrigue and suspense about what's going to happen due to this fine early build-up. Once this goes into the creature attacks, it has some rather enjoyable attacks. Starting with the first discovery of the body parts strewn across the island, this offers up some nice concepts involving the creatures attacking here which features the later attack on the shipping vessel heard through the radio or the discovery of dead bodies in bloodsoaked houses which finally clues them in that something is out there. With a stellar sequence of the unseen creatures attacking and taking out one of the locals inside the house, a later ambush where they realize the creatures' intent in the area and a fine finale where the creatures are put into even more action-centric encounters that are rather thrilling, it's exciting scenes are placed at the right spot to give this a lot to like. Along with the creature design and backstory that has plenty to like here, it ends this on a high note and is what make this one hold up over its flaws. While this one makes out well enough due to its low-budget imitations, there are a few out there that would find fault with this aspect of the film. The fact that it stays within this close-knit community, never really venturing out to other aspects of the area and looking like it's all done with local limitations makes this one a lot more restrained than it really should be. That includes the slow-burn pace which doesn't ramp up the action as much as it should, featuring plenty of low-key moments of the group going about their lives or trying to push the storyline about the creatures being there which just takes so long to move to that part of the story which is what holds it back. Likewise, some might also be on this one for the fact that it's a lot longer than it really needs to be which is certainly aided along by the overly slowed-down pacing. This one really could've been trimmed down some by either taking a little less time on the setup or injecting a bit of urgency into the proceedings once it had been obvious what was going on, which would've kept this one going a little faster. Otherwise, this one wasn't too bad.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Language and Graphic Violence.
