Apocalyptic films are popular right now but there's several things about "After The Dawn" that separates it from all the rest. The film focuses on Cassie, a survival of a horrific chemical attack that has left many dead and many others infected. As she travels alone in hopes of finding more people like her and as well as finding her brother and boyfriend alive she stumbles upon a little boy who she takes with her.
After watching the entire film I realized this was something special but I also knew that if I went into plot details here I would only ruin the film for those that are waiting to see it when it comes to DVD on 9/25 so I'm going to stay clear of any spoilers here. The film is a slow burn that might not be for everyone, it's more a character-driven drama with suspense and horror mixed in. The story is played out in segments which are separated by the seasons starting with winter. There is also a good amount of flashbacks used so you get the back story on Cassie and her life before which is very important in a film such as this. By the time the 3rd act comes around the film takes on a new twist, it's a turn of events I never seen coming.
Director, Mitchel A. Jones and Writer, Nicoel Kruex have combined to bring you an apocalyptic thriller that is both dramatic and thrilling. As far as the acting goes the cast did a great job, Nicole Kruex who wrote the script did a great job playing Cassie and Tommy Propson is exceptional as the little boy she calls Jake. The rest of the supporting cast are all fantastic as well. Production wise the film looks great, the empty streets and wooded areas create the perfect sense of isolation and danger and it plays much bigger than it's budget might suggest.
"After The Dawn" is a unique film in it's genre that delivers with plenty of with characters you are immediately taken in by and care for, there's also drama, thrills and just the right amount of action. This is a thought-provoking thriller that will have you glued to the screen the entire time and it leaves you thinking about it long after it's over. Bravo to all involved in creating this gem. A clever, engaging film that I was blown away by. Make sure you bookmark the date on this film's release and be sure to pick it up.
