It's summer 2011 and much of the world is in the icy grasp of a seemingly endless winter. Unemployed web designer John Hanson is conscripted by the Health Service to report on how the people of a small Scottish town are coping with the worsening conditions: freezing temperatures, rising food prices and oil shortages. As infrastructure and government crumble, an illness spreads, taking civilization as we know it to the brink. Faced with this collapse, John is forced to reflect on his inability to confront and commit to life's challenges, and on whether now, in this perilous new world, he can change to protect the ones he loves.

Blair Witch like with video logs for the end of the civilization.
19 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

While I love dysptopian end of the world dramas, so many are too boring to watch more than first five minutes.

This is NOT that sort of movie. It envisages a time of the climate gone wrong, and the northern hemisphere experiencing perpetual winter.

The hero is an everyman sort of guy, given a job to give ask residents of his small tiown to fill in a short survey on their health, a task he takes up with all the enthusiasm of 24 hour convenience store shelf stacker.

The impending catastrophe builds ever so slowly, the film is set at the delicious moment the world starts to collapse. Adding to this localised viewpoint, you see on-line video logs from narrators around the world describing the gradual decay of civilization, followed by rumors of an illness taking hold. All very reminiscent of the slow build-up from the Blair Witch Project. Now the questionnaire makes sense - only than people assume he knows more than he does, and go after him.
