Inhabitants of a fishing island off the coast of Maine find themselves mysteriously cut off from the outside world after the ferry suddenly stops coming. All the phones have gone dead and every boat sent to the mainland fails to return. When dead bodies turn up along the water's edge, the hardy band of survivors must find out who, or what, is killing them.
After the first 45 minutes, a few plot twists and the big reveal of what exactly is eating everyone, the film makes a sharp U-turn into science fiction B movie territory and I was convinced my only escape would be to fling myself into the nearest body of water. It turns out the military knows about the creatures that are devouring the good residents of the island and not everyone can be trusted.
A small island community off the Northeastern coast is in a spot of trouble as their fishermen haul in smaller and smaller catches. The sealife appears to be drying up around the island without any reasonable explanation. Their concern grows with the seemingly unrelated absence of the local ferry and the drop in communications with the mainland. Days pass without contact, and as food and fuel run low without daily ferry deliveries a new threat rears its head.
What we eat every day significantly affects our carbon footprint. Zero Menu, a sustainable low-emission menu designed by renowned chef Jonas Svensson is a delicious lesson in how food choices can help lower our carbon footprint. The Zero menu helps guests choose the sustainable alternative and reduces waste. Together with Neste, Olle and Hugo are also planning to grow more food on the island and are coming up with new ways to reduce waste.
Buildings on the island have been fitted with solar panels, air water heat pumps, LED lights. Propane gas used for cooking has been replaced with biogas. The island has also switched to using green electricity.
Cabins on the island get electricity from solar panels, while air water heat pumps and climate curtains ensure energy efficiency. Guests can glamp out in Zero Cabin to experience climate neutral living.
The camerawork is largely on the money too, and makes the most of the winter weather for its grim atmosphere. The film throws in a few nice aerial shots of the island and shoreline, but it has some odd turns, such as the scattershot editing during certain scenes. While the film likely was not breaking the bank with the budget, it does a fair job with what it has. So while Island Zero might not blow a cinema audience away, it should be perfectly-suited for TV or VOD audiences.
All very spooky and mysterious but the horror of the situation increases when people on the island begin to disappear too. Something is hunting them and now the survivors are going to have to work together if they hope to survive.
While the arch of the story focuses on the island as a whole, the depth comes from Sam (Adam Wade McLaughlin). He is a marine biologist who sees similarities between this and something that occurred further north a few years prior.
To begin with Island Zero is excellently paced. The story builds, introducing characters bit by bit and letting us get to know them. Decent acting helps heighten the tension with some of the highlights coming when the islanders start to panic about their dwindling supplies.
\"Oooooh, end of the world!\" Freestyle Digital Media has released a short, new official trailer, running only 30-seconds, for a dark comedy, horror thriller titled Island Zero, from director Josh Gerritsen and writer Tess Gerritsen (\"Rizzoli & Isles\"). The premise for this film sounds pretty cool, I just hope it's better than it looks. A fishing community on a remote Maine island finds itself suddenly cut off from the rest of the world after the ferry stops coming. When people start to vanish, the terrified survivors realize that someone - or something - is hunting them. Island Zero stars Laila Robins, Adam Wade McLaughlin, Teri Reeves, and Matthew Wilkas. This seems like it could be fun, with some bloody twists and amusing horror moments, but I'm not entirely sure based on this 30 seconds of footage. Maybe it's not bad Give it a look.

A mysterious presence is preying on the residents of a remote island in the new chiller ISLAND ZERO, and a woman discovers the gruesome remains of one victim in an exclusive excerpt you can see after the jump.
The fishing stocks of a remote island community have rapidly gone done and the residents are rightly concerned. When the ferry that brings their essential supplies from the mainland fails to show, the concern turns to panic. They soon discover that their communications to the outside world, radio, phone, and internet, have all been cut off. The discovery of a capsized fishing boat on their shores, with its owner turned into a bloody mess further heightens the fear.
The film investigates the story of Sam (Adam Wade McLaughlin), a marine biologist, who saw something similar happen in northern waters four years ago. As he gets closer to the mystery, he suspects something devious is going on. His partner Lucy (Terri Reeves) wants to get off the island as soon as possible, while his daughter Ellie (Elaine Landry) might provide the key with something she sees in her new hastily unwrapped Christmas present of an infrared video camera.
Municipal waste management on the island begins with sorting at the source, in homes and offices. Every household on the island of Tilos participates in the Just Go Zero program by sorting household waste into recyclable materials, non-recyclable materials, and bio-waste.
All 350 households on the island, the municipality, and businesses participate in the Just Go Zero program. Island residents received unique waste selection bags with a QR code. Citizens can monitor their contribution to the zero waste initiative on a mobile application.
Just Go Zero is a circular economy pilot project in Greece. Tilos has become a waste-free island, and Polygreen has optimistically pointed out that such an initiative can be implemented on any other island, in the local community, city, or state.
The first hybrid power plant in Greece was built on Tilos. Electricity from wind and solar generators is stored in batteries. It makes the island, with just over 500 residents, entirely self-sufficient regarding energy.
The island has become a green spot in the Mediterranean through pioneering ventures for installing renewable energy and managing municipal waste. The initiatives are good examples of how to reduce negative impacts on the environment at the local level.
I am working with an island community in Australia called Magnetic Island and we are looking at our own zero waste systems here. We have 2,350 people and about 290,000 visitors each year, We are about 8 km off the mainland with only ferries/barges as the main transport to and from our island. I would be really interested in touching base with communities around the world to share ideas, practical solutions, pittfalls etc so we can get it right here if and when we can get it to happen here.

With Christmas just around the corner, the inhabitants of a small fishing island off the coast of Maine find themselves cut off from the outside word when the ferry fails to show. As all communications are lost to the mainland and fish disappear, the community becomes increasingly desperate. Soon bodies begin to turn up along the shoreline and the island survivors are faced with a new aquatic predator.
In less capable hands, a movie about a new species of invisible, carnivorous sea creatures that mutilate and devour the local inhabitants of a remote island would be nothing more than fodder for a ridiculous SyFy creature feature.
Most of the island inhabitants board a couple of small fishing boats headed for the mainland. Those left behind include a marine biologist named Sam (Adam Wade McLaughlin), his girlfriend and daughter, an ex-military doctor (Laila Robins), an unlikable writer and out-of-towner who claims to be using the island as inspiration for his next novel (Matthew Wilkas), an elderly couple, a young waitress and a restaurant worker.
