5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a great female character! November 25, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tain't Bad December 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Last Stand Delight January 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I really liked this movie. Though I rarely write reviews I had to do so with this movie. I read the reviews before I watched this flick and was disappointed because the trailers seemed good. However, after viewing this apocalypse drama I was very glad that I did not pay attention to the na-sayers. This movie has good acting, cinematography, action, and a great story line in the way it doesn't fill in all the details. The person watching this has to use some imagination which in this case is a good thing. The entire movie held my attention and I never knew what was coming next. This is one of those gems that is a pleasure to discover. I highly recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this film. January 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling post-apocalyptic horror in 'The Day' December 16, 2012
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.

This is not a deep movie, but it does what it sets out to do in a very competent fashion. Acting is decent & there is very little cheese, so it is ahead of most SHTF movies. Read more
