Check out five clips from director Doug Aarniokoski’s post-apocalyptic actioner “The Day”. I guess you could call this an indie film. There’s essentially just one location where all the action takes place in and around. Still, it looks pretty intense, unless, of course, the characters bicker too much. The only thing worst than bad action in a post-apocalyptic movie are characters that feel like they have to constantly argue. That’s just annoying, and bad writing.
A group of five survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in The Day, a terrifying look into a post-apocalyptic future. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand— over a 24 hour period—battling for their ultimate survival.
Starring Shawn Ashmore, Shannyn Sossamon, Dominic Monaghan, Ashley Bell, Cory Hardrict, and Michael Eklund.
The film already opened in limited release last week, so I’m guessing start looking for it on DVD/Blu-ray or a VOD outlet of your choice, if you so choose to look for it, that is.
