Goofs

In the scene where the two local Police Officers sit in their side-by-side parked cars, in the dialogue between them, one of the Shot-Revers-Shots which visualize their discussion, one shot is reversed. The Police Officer who's wearing the Police hat sits - mirrored - in his car and it looks as if its a right-steering car. The patch on his arm shows letters which are mirrored too. See more »

Great little Mystery/Thriller...
17 September 2006 | by zarmazievexSee all my reviews

I was very surprised that this movie did not get a better rating compared to some similar titles that were very disappointing. Population 436 is a low budget but to its benefit as it doesn't play the usual visual and audio special effects. Actually, you don't even pay attention as it doesn't require a high-budget that would have ruined it anyway (i.e. The Wickerman - 2006).This movie has a good cast, good acting a very subtle creepiness. You will follow the main character inside a weird, cult society as with The Tenant, Rosemary's Baby, The Wickerman...If you like the genre you will like Population 436. Give it a try.
