C’mon people, Day of Darkness was awesome! It’s so memorable, it’s one of my all time favorite zombie movies.
When a comet strikes Earth and kicks up a cloud of toxic dust, hundreds of humans join the ranks of the living dead. But there’s bad news for the survivors: The newly minted zombies are hell-bent on eradicating every last person from the planet. For the few human beings who remain, going head to head with the flesh-eating fiends is their only chance for long-term survival. Yet their battle will be dark and cold, with overwhelming odds.
This movie goes beyond zombies and turns humans into incubators for alien parasites, and in a not so nice way. I can’t spoil this one, so you’ll have to watch to find out or go read another review. It’s some of the weirdest shit I’ve seen in a movie and not for the squeamish. One of the things I liked about this movie is that it brought together a diverse group of survivors who couldn’t get along or work together, and the low budget actors played their parts well. There wasn’t a lot of zombie action in this one though, which brought my rating down a bit.
