Brad McHargue writes in from Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas with his review of Doug Aarniokoski’s The Day, which boasts the impressive cast of Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan, Shannyn Sossamon and Andrew Coutts. WWE Studios acquired the film after it’s Midnight Madness premiere at TIFF. In a post-apocalyptic future, five survivors wander along rural back-roads seeking shelter, which turns into a battleground where they must fight or die.
“ ‘The Day’ is so firmly entrenched in its post-apocalyptic style that it fails to cull together anything we haven’t seen before. Add in questionable acting, thin characters, and just plain old bad CGI, and ‘The Day’ does little to draw the viewer into its view of the end of the world.”
