The apocalypse was just the beginning.
Three years after a mysterious virus turned most of humanity into slavering zombies, a lone warrior comes to the aid of a beleaguered community of survivors. As you can probably tell, post-apocalyptic horror thriller Daylight's End doesn’t score high points for storytelling originality, save for the quirk of making its vampire-like zombies burn up on exposure to sunlight.
Laconic hero Rourke (actor-musician Johnny Strong) is very much a chip off the Mad Max block, yet with less charisma. The dialogue is often pretty ropey, too, but the action has a pulpy shoot-’em-up vigour, well suited to the film’s simultaneous release as an interactive virtual-reality experience.
Certificate 15. Runtime 105 mins. Director William Kaufman
