The Quiet Earth 1985
Scientist Zac Hobson (Bruno Lawrence) wakes up one morning and heads to the research station where he works. However, he quickly discovers that all of the people who would normally be around him seem to have disappeared into thin air. A gas station he stops at to fill his car is left unattended. Vehicles are left abandoned on the road. A house which he knocks at the door of is revealed to be completely empty. He also discovers the smoldering wreckage of an airliner which has fallen out of the sky. When he eventually enters the lab, he finds that there is nobody there either. When he sends signals out to other labs across the world, he receives no responses from any of them. It appears that a scientific experiment which he has been involved with, known as Project Flashlight, has wiped out most of humanity...

As Zac wanders the deserted city of Hamilton, New Zealand, hoping to find some remnant of life besides himself, his mind begins to disintegrate until fantasy and reality blur together in a heady, terrifying cocktail.
