This was a great film and very prophetic Nov. 11 2014

This was a great film and very prophetic.
The film (back in 1977 of all things!) correctly predicted the global climate change epidemic and depletion of the Ozone Layer. Well, that's where factually correct scientific analysis ends, or does it?

In the film, radiation from ultra-violet light from the Sun causes wild animals and household pets alike to go bananas and attack folks without regard. In that way, its sort of like MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE from the 1980s (but with animals replacing the machines).
Anyway, the animals have now turned on their former masters, and the terror that results from this really is frightening.

I watched this with small children, what a mistake. They wouldn't go to bed after!

We know Climate Change has been devastating in the decades since the film debuted. However, as far as I know, it has not yet caused animals to turn on humanity. We still have time to change our ways. We still have time...
"Hey hotshot, we're out of food." Sept. 22 2014

Day of the animals, in which we learn that aerosol cans can kill.

What a highly dramatic public service announcement/environmental dissertation. Caution, the watching of this film can cause the depletion of the ozone layer.....which in turn increases ultraviolet light subjecting animals (and some people) to deadly solar radiation turning them into mad dogs (as the case may be). But, be that as it may, this is still a fun little pseudo-horror flick in the animals running amok genre. The story begins, amusingly enough, as a 'survival hike' is about to take place. Survival being the key word. The intrepid Christopher George (as Steve Buckner) is the leader of this motley crew. He has his hands full dealing with malcontents, complainers, and a variety of neophyte hikers. Every step of the way they are watched by animals in abundance (this is the only part that didn't really work as most of the animal shots had too much of a National Geographic look to them). Meanwhile, in the real world, people are warned to stay out of the sun and stay away from angry mutts. In no time at all, the animals resort to guerrilla warfare and begin specially arranged sneak attacks. Coincidently, Leslie Nielsen (as crazy Paul Jenson) abruptly turns manic, begins sniping at everyone, eventually becoming a cold killer, and would be rapist. I guess radiation at 5,000 feet will do that to some actors (it's easily the most bizarre performance in any film).

Quintessentially, the best reason for not having pets or for going hiking in the wilderness. Camping, never a good idea.
Animals run amok Jan. 28 2014

This 70's horror flick mixes two genres: the ecological disaster (the ozone layer being depleted) and how it affects animals in the woods with a bunch of hikers. Pretty violent for a PG rated film directed by the the late William Girdler.

Deeply unsatisfying. Feb. 27 2014
By Colten - Published on Amazon.com
I don't care about the stupid science, or the one-dimensional characters, or even the silly plotting and the choppy, inept direction. All I need from a movie like Day of the Animals is some gut-crunching action that delivers the goods...and jumping jesus christ I can't even get that here?! Talk about negative waves, man. A rental for sci-fi/action completists, but everyone else will take a hike on Day of the Animals.

I saw this at the drive in back in the day. Forgot most of it, but this is a classic to have. Enjoyed it a lot.
