Cool little low-budget thriller
17 May 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The 24th Day is a tense, low-budget gay thriller which focuses on Tom who holds Dan (an ex-trick) captive. Tom had tested positive to HIV 24 days ago and is convinced that Dan was the one who gave it to him. He extracts a blood sample from Dan and threatens to do bad things if it comes back HIV positive.

The 24th Day has a well conceived story-line (apparently it was based on a play written by the Director or something) - and although it takes a little while to get going - I think it sets the scene well and draws you to the characters.

It's basically a two-man film and the two leads are quite well acted - Dan (played by X-Men's James Marsden) is cocky, self-assured (for the most part) and defiant while Scott Speedman's Tom is uneasy and simmering (in the angry sense).

The film quality (as in picture) is fairly poor - but it doesn't distract from the film.

24th Day is a cool little thriller which is worth checking out if you like low-budget movies.
