Island Zero is a 2018 horror movie directed by Josh Gerritsen and starring Laila Robins, Adam Wade McLaughlin, and Teri Reeves. The movie is set on a remote island off the coast of Maine where the population is gradually decreasing. The inhabitants are all connected by the need for medical supplies but their deliveries have stopped. When a ferry suddenly stops coming to the island, the inhabitants are forced to deal with an unknown epidemic.

The movie begins with a gruesome scene, a fisherman is attacked and his body mutilated by an unknown creature. The story then introduces us to Dr. Sally Ellery (Laila Robins), a scientist working to find a cure for cancer. She has arrived on the island to study the population's unique genetic makeup which might hold the key to a potential cure. She quickly realizes that something is amiss when the medical supplies that she needs to conduct her research stop arriving on the island.

The movie then shifts its focus to the inhabitants of the island who all seem to have their own secrets. There's the local doctor, Sam (Adam Wade McLaughlin) who is struggling to keep the population healthy, the mysterious owner of the local bar, Titus (Matthew Wilkas), and a handful of other characters with their own baggage. As the population dwindles and the residents become increasingly desperate, a group of them band together to try to escape the island.

What the group doesn't know is that they are being stalked by a mysterious creature that has been attacking the locals. The creature remains hidden for most of the movie, adding a tense and ominous feeling to the story. It is unclear what the creature is or where it came from but it is clear that it poses a threat to anyone who remains on the island.

The movie's strength lies in its ability to create a sense of dread and discomfort. The setting is cold and isolated, and the sense of desperation among the inhabitants is palpable. The characters are well developed and each has their own motivations for wanting to leave the island. The tension builds slowly as the group tries to escape, and the audience is left wondering who will survive and who will succumb to the mysterious creature.

The movie is not without its flaws, however. The pacing is uneven, with some scenes dragging on for too long while others are over too quickly. Additionally, the creature itself is not as intimidating as it could have been. It's more of a generic monster than something that truly strikes terror into the hearts of the characters.

Overall, Island Zero is a compelling and suspenseful horror movie. The remote setting and the well-drawn characters make for an engaging story, and the slow build of tension keeps the audience on edge. While it may not be the most original horror movie out there, it is still a solid entry in the genre and worth a watch for fans of horror and suspense.

Island Zero is a 2018 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 39 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7.
