Staff Pick: ‘Island Zero’

Island Zero

I found the movie Island Zero (2016) on the Hoopla database. It’s the story of an island off the Massachusetts coast that begins to experience some unexplained mysteries. Local fishermen notice the fish have disappeared. A ferry – which is the main mode of transportation to and from the island – stops coming. People begin to disappear, and only bloody remains can be found. Attempts to reach the mainland by private boat fail. Eventually, a shocking discovery is made, and a group of remaining survivors attempts to escape.

This movie is very suspenseful and dramatic. It keeps your attention. Special effects add to the mystery. The acting is excellent, even though the plot is shaky in spots. Overall, it’s a very entertaining movie which is well worth your time.
