There are several things that make this movie a standout in the apocalyptic genre. Most notably the fact that the pivotal female character isn't just a badass that looks hot while fighting. She has a legitimate backstory and motivation that is truly compelling. I also enjoyed the fact that the movie doesn't insult you by explaining everything before the story starts. It's not a perfect film, but for an indie it's pretty damn impressive.

never really been into apocalyptic/horror films, decided to try this based on word of mouth - it is definitely worth watching. I recommend this without hesitation, and I'm a female senior citizen!!! :) :) You won't be disappointed.

Gritty, survival horror. People who like "The Walking Dead" will like this film though it has nothing to do with Zombies or anything supernatural. Just mankind's capacity for evil when survival is at stake. I rented this and would recommend it to anyone who likes post-apocalyptic survival films. The female lead was awesome and I think what I liked most about her is that she is not the prettiest girl. She felt realistic and like someone you might actually meet.

I've watched a few end of days movies. The Day After. The Road (very bleak). I didn't mean to rent The Day. I thought I'd clicked on The Five Day War. I'd previewed The Day and when it played after purchase instead of Five Day War, I thought Ok, I'll run with this.

As usual, character names have escaped my memory. Four friends have been roaming in search of food since some catastrophic event ended normal society years back. They once were 12, but the rest have died or been killed. The story starts with them miserable, tired and sick on the road. There is a 5th of their number, joined them later in their trek, and she is not as trusted. They find a house and take refuge but are afraid. One young man is very ill. The mystery surrounding the 5th comes out quickly. She is one of "them" (enter dramatic music). The house is a trap, set to lure them into the basement, where they think they find food, and spring the trap. The basement locks down with one of the three killed in the trap. A siren blares. They burn their dead friend to prevent him from being taken by their nemeses. Just like in The Road, cannibals also roam hunting their human counterparts to eat. It was the cannibals who set the house trap and now the cannibals who attack. The 5th member of their party once belonged to a cannibal band. She fights with them, however. The end scene might be the best in the movie. This is a bleak, violent yet poignant story of friends remembering their loved ones, who have died, wishing for the past, clinging to hope for a future. (and hunted by cannibals)

At Glasgow Frightfest, I was excited about and had the privilege of seeing The Day, a postapocalyptic horror movie that stars recognisable actors such as Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings, I Sell the Dead), Cory Hardricht and Shannyn Sossamon (One Missed Call, Catacombs) and from the looks of the trailer, it was right up my street.

Although the synopsis appears to be standard horror fayre, it is quite deceptive in its simplicity. The Day has at its heart, the choices people will make when faced with extreme situations and the lengths they will go to in order to protect their own interests. Base and higher level emotions are at play here: survival, love, mistrust, redemption and hunger...

For me, one of the major thrusts of the film was what motivated the cannibals and their potential prey; they both sought to survive in the face of near-certain annihilation and protect their own interests... but went about this in very different ways.

The inevitable assault on the farmhouse, alluded to in the synopsis, put me in mind of John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13 and added a greater degree of dread to proceedings as the near anonymous assailants began their attempts to overcome the building's defences.

Alongside Monaghan and Sossamon is Shawn Ashmore. Best known for his role as Iceman in the X-Men franchise, Ashmore is carving himself quite the niche as a genre actor (Solstice, The Ruins, Frozen, 2010's Mother's Day) and puts in an almost unrecognisable turn as Adam, bulked up, bearded and a mile away from the fresh-faced Iceman of X-Men.

The story takes place in post-apocalyptic England(?)unless they were talking about Winchester, Canada, about a decade after the disaster/war killed off most of the population. It is filmed in black and white with a brief flashback in color. People have resorted to clans and cannibalism for survival. Our traveling group of 5 consists of three men and two women. The three guys have been together since childhood and know their roles. Rick (Dominic Monaghan) is the leader due to his experience in "Lost." Adam (Shawn Ashmore) is his disagreeing friend. Henson (Cory Hardrict) is the third man and he is ill which slows the group down in their travels.

Shannon (Shannyn Sossamon) has been with the group for 12 years and is cold toward Mary (Ashley Bell) a quiet lone wolf who has recently joined the group. Then if you read the back of the DVD it informs you that they set off a trap and must fight for their lives against another group. And that's pretty much the movie except...

The film has a slight twist which make it watchable. It doesn't bring anything new to the table and is one of the more boring post-apocalyptic films out there. No zombies. No Thunderdome. No weird vehicles. No colorful cans of Dole Pineapple. In fact they got 41 bullets between them. The film partially builds upon the relationship of the characters, which I found to be hit or miss as it doesn't give you much background so you have to draw something from their mostly robotic movement. It isn't until things go awry do our characters come to life. There are certainly better films out there and in color too.

A rental at best.

Parental Guide: f-bomb, brief shower nudity (Shannyn Sossamon), no sex.
