The Day

Douglas Aarniokoski’s post-apocalyptic, moderately budgeted flick “The Day” is the reason why I fell in love with cinemas in the first place. It’s a no-frills, no-holds bar action movie about a small band of survivors trying to make it through the day while confronting roving bands of cannibals. Betrayal, harsh conditions, and the brutal knowledge that they’re fighting a hopeless cause makes for one depressing, albeit very awesome viewing. The film’s standout performance goes to Ashley Bell, playing a survivor name Mary. If Mad Max and Virginia Hey’s Warrior Woman in White from “The Road Warrior” ever took time out from battling The Humungus and his hordes to do the nasty, Mary would be the result. The film has the makings of a franchise, so you should do everything in your power to watch this movie and spread the word so it can become a cult classic, and I can finally get my sequel.
