The apocalypse has arrived and the world is a brutal and dangerous place to live. It's been ten years since an unnamed disaster occurred and a group of five survivors are heading to greener pastures to try and find a place to plant some rare vegetable seeds. They're low on ammunition and food and one of the group is sick and so they decide to break from their usual protocol and hole up in an abandoned two-storey farmhouse. It isn't long before cannibals come looking for prey. Visually stark just like the landscapes, The Day delivers splatter kills, edge-of-your-seat suspense and visceral action. UK premiere. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: FrightFest.
