      Once again, a movie I’ve never even heard about before turned out to be a pretty good thriller for our weekly movie night. When I came across Population 436 on my movie channels Wednesday night, I had no idea what it was.

      But, I was a


      bit tired and didn’t want a long movie and, while I wanted a thriller, I didn’t want another slasher flick or zombie movie.

      Population 436 offered something a bit different.

      You have a Federal Census worker entering a small town in what I believe is one of the Dakotas.

      While there, he encounters a population that has stayed at the same 436 number for more than 100 years.

      When the movie first started, I figured it was some sort of curse that killed someone off everytime a new child was born.

      Instead,


      • Population 436
      it’s the town folk themselves who insist on keeping the population at that number; even if it means holding a festival to celebrate someone killing themselves.

      And, apparently, if you spend the night, you are considered part of the community.

      This wasn’t a movie that had

      me leaping off my couch but it definitely was interesting; especially since nobody explains what’s going on until the very end; when we also learn that anyone who attempts to escape ends up dying because “it’s God’s will.

      ” I would definitely recommend this movie the next time you’re looking for something to watch.

Population 436 sounds great and very interesting. I have never heard of the movie or seen it but it sounds worthwhile. It’s amazing how one suddenly ends up enjoying a great movie and you have never heard of it
