Storyline

The depletion of the earth's ozone layer causes animals above the altitude of 5000 feet to run amok, which is very unfortunate for a group of hikers who get dropped off up there by helicopter just before the quarantine is announced. Written by Brian J. Wright <tyrannorabbit@hotmail.com>

Steve Buckner: I know!
Paul Jenson: Well, where's that food that's supposed to be around here?
Steve Buckner: It's up ahead.
Paul Jenson: You say.
Steve Buckner: That's right. I say.
Paul Jenson: You hear that, everyone? Hot shot says there's food up ahead. That is, if he's reading his map right. Well, what the hell, let's get going. I'm hungry.
Steve Buckner: Okay Mr. Jenson. Get your ass in gear and let's go!

Day of the Animals
23 July 2003 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

I actually liked this movie even though it was slow at certain times. It was on the same level as grizzly as being a good movie to own. I just found out that it was on DVD, so I will definitely buy it eventually. I love killer animal movies and this one gives me a good show. My rating *** out of *****.
