Trivia

A plan by the survivors in the movie was to make it to the southern tip of the Baja peninsula because the zombies could not walk that far in under one day. At the beginning of the movie, Rourke (Johnny Strong) comes across a zombie girl holed up at an abandoned gas station in the middle of the desert inside of a freezer just after sunrise. The scene suggests it would have taken too long for the zombie to reach another city in less than a day. See more »

Surprisingly good.....
4 August 2016 | by s3276169See all my reviews

I have to confess I came to Daylights End with very limited expectations. I was then surprised at how easily it exceeded all of them.

This is a very good film. Its intelligently written, with a implausibly plausible premise and down to earth, honest characterizations, that lend this film a certain maturity. It reminiscent of films like 28 Days Later and whilst it has a B budget, still manages to hand in an A grade performance.

The action scenes, in particular, are "polished". Clearly a lot of work went into the run and gun scenes and I suspect, a military expert was used to lend the whole thing an air of realism.

Just as surprising is the quality of acting. Pretty much everyone from Lance Henrikson, Johnny Strong and the rest of the cast hand in decent performances.

Its remarkable how much can be done with so little, whilst deep pockets Hollywood often achieves so little, with so much. Well shot, acted and directed, with a convincing story, that's very entertaining. Eight out of ten from me.
