Day of the Animals (1977)
Director: William Girdler
Main Stars: Christopher George, Leslie Nielsen, Lynda Day George, Ruth Roman
Storyline: Hikers try to survive up against a horde of animals that live in a chemically imbalanced forest.
Review (Spoils): Some has gone wrong with the environment of planet. Any animals that live above the 5000 feet of altitude have gone mad. The ozone layer is being blamed and a group of hikers have been dropped off there before the big announcement of quarantine of the forest.
We have Leslie Nielsen trying to be serious and fail’s massively.We have a ton of mad animals, flying rats, bears, snakes, mountains lions, wolves, birds and even dogs. The animal scenes are actually cheesy and funny but nothing over the top gory.
Rating: This film reminds me of Grizzly and it about the same pace. If you’re in the mood for an animal attacks film it’s ok but the shirtless hunky Leslie Nielsen is laughable.
