f you need a break from the endless parade of holiday movies out there, a pretty solid take on the whole post-apocalyptic zombie genre with some cool guns is on Netflix right now. You probably missed it, but two years ago Johnny Strong starred in Daylight’s End, which is set some unspecified amount of time (less than a decade for sure) after a mysterious plague has devastated the planet and turned most people into bloodthirsty undead creatures. They’re sort of a mix between vampires and zombies…they go after your blood, they don’t try to eat you, which makes things a little more problematic. In say, The Walking Dead, a solid percentage of zombie victims simply become food without being turned, consumed by attacking zombies. In DE, almost everyone who gets attacked is turned. Also like vampires, the creatures combust in sunlight, so you have a I Am Legend / Omega Man type of set up where the creatures hide in dark places during the day, and people are relatively safe to move about, but as soon as night falls, they have to be entrenched and protected.
