In recent years two themes have dominated sci-fi genre - either superheroes and CGI filled productions for the kids or post-apocalyptic reality productions for adults. Canadian Radius is refreshingly original film in that company - you canâ€™t really pigeon-hole it to one genre.
Man wakes up in the middle of nowhere - he does not remember who he is, he does not remember what he is doing in this rural area, only a small bits of car crash he was in are getting through to his brain. He finds his wallet, but the name inside doesnâ€™t mean anything to him. He tries to stop the passing car hoping for a lift, but driver seems to be stopping before ending up dead in the ditch. The eyes of the driver are almost completely white, but she doesnâ€™t seem hurt in any way. He walks down the road and stumbles upon a diner, but inside he finds people froze in different positions, all with completely white eyes. The man reaches the address he found in his ID, but doesnâ€™t recognize anything. On the radio he hears the messages about people found dead with their eyes white, the officials canâ€™t make out what is the reason behind their death so they urge people to stay inside.
Canadian sci-fi movie that really stands out from the genre - there is the mystery, the chase, the blank memory, the questions that keeps pop up. While mixing several elements Radius manages to be original and involving until the very end.
