  • Fantastic Fest and Fandango present: THE DAY Q & A
    Robert Rodriguez's prodigiously talented protégé Doug Aarniokoski directs THE DAY, an edge-of-your-seat war action horror, in the vein of MAD MAX, ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 and FROM DUSK TIL DAWN. Set in a bleak, post-apocalyptic world, where much of the remaining population has turned to the chaos of open warfare. A group of survivors, just normal people forced into a life of constant battle for survival, are now lost, wandering the desolate country in hopes of finding a true refuge. There is no mission objective. There is no destination. There used to be 12. Only 5 remain. One survivor falls victim to illness and when faced with an impending storm, the group decides to take shelter at an abandoned farmhouse. This is a horrifying glimpse into what 24 hours is like in this vicious world. The battle is everywhere and the bullets are dwindling. The group must use every ounce of strength, courage and guile they have to defend their stronghold from a brutally determined enemy. When faced with the end, what will you continue to battle for? Grab your weapon. The battle for humanity is here. Fight or die. Relentless, visceral, intense... THE DAY has come.
