My Rating

Movie Info

A comet crashed into the Earth, bringing a mass of parasites capable of transforming typical human beings into flesh-eating ghouls in this apocalyptic zombie flick from genre specialist Jake Kennedy. When the citizens of planet Earth noticed an enormous comet looming ominously in the atmosphere, the powers that be assured everyone that they were perfectly safe. They couldn't have been more wrong: After the massive, icy chunk of parasitic rock comes slamming to the ground, the dust that it kicks

The final chapter of the trilogy that began with The Decline of the American Empire and continued with The Barbarian Invasions, Days of Darkness has neither that chatty brilliance of the former nor the elegiac emotion of the latter.

Days of Darkness is arguably [Denis] Arcand's most depressing film. Yet it's also one of his greatest and, in a strange way, his most uplifting.

An apocalyptic film for those who like to pleasure themselves with bad movies about flesh-eaters.

Denys Arcand's Days of Darkness have arrived, and not just as a film title.

Audience Reviews for Days of Darkness

This is a pretty fuckin awesome Z-budget film. If you think this is a bad zombie movie, you ain't seen bad zombie movies.

Would it be nice if there was better acting? Yeah, sure - that's always the answer for most movies though. How does this bad acting compare to typical zombie movie bad acting? It's a good 40% better than typical crap Z-movie acting, as in the acting is actually tolerable.

How about the visuals? The crew hasn't got millions, and I don't actually know how much they had to work with - but the effects in this are damn cool. I like the old fashioned use of production effects, and a lot of the makeup/fx is pretty damn awesome, definitely in the higher end of Z-movies.

Could the script be better and carry a bit more continuity? Almost always, but in this case, I'm too tickled by the parasite alien babies growing in zombies' scrotums and the end "solution" to the zombie plague. It's a funny and interesting Z-movie, and actually enjoyable.

Hmmm.. Now, this story plot sounds familiar. It has certain elements from various flicks of the 'zombie' genre. Slightly on the gruesome side, for the fact that a henious act is committed upon a male. Although it appears to be directed towards men, in general. (Gotta watch to see what I mean). But overall, it's something you just got to see when you just need a certain form of laughter to make up for your day. Enjoy, eeeerrr....you'll see!
