Darkness falls across the land....as the great Vincent Price narrates a Mondo flick
16 November 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Days of Fury is yet another redundant documentary style 'Mondo' film; along the same lines as Mondo Cane and Faces of Death. This one, however, does have its own little plus point; in the form of the great Vincent Price, who for some reason decided to do the narration. I have no idea why such a great actor would involve himself in something like this...but even so, his presence (while mostly a vocal presence) is my only reason for seeing the film, and the film's only big plus point. To be honest, I could happily spend ninety minutes listening to Vincent Price talk about the price of fish through the ages, and there are worse subjects to hear him speak about than death and destruction. This film focuses on destruction, mainly, both natural and man made and we see things like the oil industry, hunting, earthquakes, famine, volcanoes, buildings falling down etc.

It's not exactly pleasant, but at least parts of it are interesting. The footage is clearly lifted from a range of different sources and the quality varies several times throughout the film; which makes it feel very low rent indeed. This sort of stuff is generally rated on how good its subject materials are; and actually here they're not bad. It all seems real (unlike, say, Faces of Death) which is to its credit and parts of it such as a scene in which a bridge sways and eventually falls down are well worth seeing. Vincent Price does appear in person at times too; with various cuts of him explaining the footage in person featuring. It is kind of a shame that he was involved in something like this; but to be honest I'd hate to have seen this film without his voice in it. The film appears to condemn most of man's actions and simply portray horror caused by nature; but unfortunately there's never really any point made. The genre is entitled 'Mondo' (meaning 'World') for a reason; that being that it shows events happening in the world, although without any focus...it does make me as the viewer question why I'm watching.
