  • The film feels unbelievably long at 84 minutes, and the color-drained, hand-held cinematography serves only as a reminder of just how good "Night of the Living Dead" really was.

  • A savage B-movie thriller with unrealized aspirations to profundity ...

  • Every day is gloomy in "The Day," Douglas Aarniokoski's film with a creepy, paranoid atmosphere that's more effective than the performances.

  • Towards the end, you might find yourself thinking, "Well, this could have been worse." And you'll mean it as a compliment.

  • "The Day" is just good enough to engage audiences, but it falls well short of remarkable, leaving viewers wishing for a dawn that never breaks.

    August 29, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Day" cycles through bursts of horrific violence only to end much as it begins: static, hollow and vague.

    A bold and brutal instant classic. It`s one of the most shocking films of 2012. It gets in your head and under your skin quick with its gritty atmosphere, brutal nature and gripping characters. A bone-chilling, stylish, exhilarating and utterly breathtaking edge of your seat thriller. A well-crafted piece of work from Robert Rodriquez`s protege: Director, Doug Aarniokoski, who shows us he`s an exceptional talent and will have a bright future. The cast is beyond great, they have great chemistry and show no mercy. Shawn Ashmore is excellent. Michael Eklund is terrifyingly good. A knockout of an adrenaline-rush. It has echos of From Dusk till Dawn, Mad Max and The Book of Eli.

    The post apocalyptic setting is really unsettling and had the film focused more on the characters this battle for survival could have really delivered. The cast is quite good in thankless roles and its really what they put in what really helps. Half the problem we face as the audience is the complete lack of villains. The central bad guy is quite interesting but barely given any screen time. The writing is the problem especially the back stories, I would of waited for more character development as the characters headed to the house. The story just needed more focus and if would of been really good. The ending is quite silly after some sacrifices, this should of been avoided. The film is interesting to look at and with a good concept it almost works. Don't expect much and you should have some fun
