Day of the Animals

Please choose a format above.

Pollution has left the ozone layer severely depleted, and we all know what that means: eagles start commanding mountain lions to attack hapless campers! It’s basic science, people!

Day of the Animals has a premise that will be familiar to anyone who’s ever mispronounced the word ‘solrpnls.’ But it has one thing going for it that Birdemic does not: shirtless Leslie Nielsen. Frank Drebin himself descends into madness as members of his expedition are picked off one by one by vicious wolves, hungry bears, and ground squirrels that make a sort of annoying screeching sound. Eventually he removes his shirt and beats up a kid. We’ve all been there.

A film that saw the glut of 70s ensemble disaster movies and thought “I could do that for way cheaper!” Day of the Animals is guaranteed to delight both fans of animals and twenty four hour intervals of the earth’s rotation. Pull up a chair alongside Mike, Kevin, Bill, and a bunch of spruce bark beetles in a trench coat!
