A small band of friends make an uneasy alliance with a mysterious lone wolf in this blend of horror and adventure. An unnamed catastrophe has turned the Earth into a wasteland, and as packs of feral cannibals wander the countryside, a dwindling number of survivors struggle to stay alive. Rick (Dominic Monaghan), Adam (Shawn Ashmore), Henson (Cory Hardrict), and Shannon (Shannyn Sossamon) have been journeying together for months and are the last living members of a much larger group. Mary (Ashley Bell) is a solitary woman who crossed paths with the survivors and is now traveling with them. She isn't interested in discussing her past or becoming friends, but the others learn she's a powerful ally in a fight. The travelers take shelter in a house, but are soon surrounded by cannibals; they quickly realize just how strong a warrior Mary can be, while also discovering the terrible truth that led her to wander alone. The Day was directed by Douglas Aarniokoski, who has accumulated extensive credits as an assistant director and helming second-unit material on major films.

This is the dvd to watch if you like apocalypse movies.The story depicts a group of 5 individuals who take refuge in an old house, which by the way is a trap that is monitored by a larger group of predators. The refuge group sets off a hidden alarm that alerts the predatory group. Then the action really begins. The story is intense and dramatic. I give it a deserved five stars for intensity,action and realism. A great Saturday night movie. As far as the theme of this movie- Its not an if but a when, probably in about 20 yrs.or less.
