Tomorrow (Wednesday, August 29th) see the release of The Day, a WWE Films acquisition directed by Douglas Aarniokoski and starring Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan and Shannyn Sossamon.
Shock Till You Drop caught up to Bell and Monaghan to talk about their time on the production and how they prepared for the film’s post-apocalyptic scenario.
In the film, a group of five survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand – over a 24 hour period – battling for their ultimate survival.
