An ambitious next-generation spin on the found-footage genre, Population Zero starts out like an indie version of a true-crime TV news magazine and turns into a horror-tinged drama with a topical slant.

if the story that Pinder pursues seems incredible, nonetheless he uses his experimental form to expose a different kind of truth that is actually very close to his interests as a documentarian.

Overall, "Population Zero" is a film with an interesting subject but an execution that loses steam until that one scene near the end.

This low budget film is a shrewd, rebellious work of art that takes a complex idea and executes it exceptionally well. There's much to admire in its ambitious spirit.

Population Zero edges towards disappointing its audience, but is interesting enough in its early stages to make it a worthwhile watch, and certainly one of the better mock-documentaries you will come across.
