Day V
21 November 2007 | by GutterJimSee all my reviews

Day X starts off fast with a single individual becoming enraged and killing a coworker without any explanation as to why. Soon afterwords a group of people in a parking garage become infected and attack our main character Frank Chambers. These attackers have not died and come back to life but it is explained later that an airborne virus scrambles the brain and affects the blood making those infected with it hunger for the flesh of the living.

The locations used in Day X are very cool. You'll see a lot of run down industrial warehouse interiors and exteriors, and only a few lush garden like settings. I'm guessing they didn't have to build a set for this film at all. There are some locations used that could have been explored more but that may have taken away from the fast paced storyline. I don't like to give away the whole movie in written format but the story doesn't drag at any point in the movie, it does however end rather abruptly. Maybe that was the filmmakers intent to get a sequel in the works. The make up effects are good, some of the infected have a very nasty gory look while others have a quick dirty chimney sweep look.

The CG is not pretty but it's very lightly used and not on screen long. Sound effects are a little fake towards the beginning of Day X but later on with shot guns and other louder guns they sound effects are perfect. Some of the actors are re-dubbed, not due to language differences but most likely due to on set audio issues. The dialog feels a little forced from some of the actors while others simply had too much foul language written for their character. The camera work is really professional for an indie film. The making of feature shows some of the lengths the camera men went took to get some really cool shots. Over all I enjoyed watching this mix of horror with sci-fi. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoyed Dead and Deader, 28 Days/Weeks Later or Undead.
