He must evade capture and use the money to rid himself of his demons once and for all. Witness his last days of life.


„A Day of Violence“ simply hits You like a Ton of Bricks and the title of the Movie literally speaks for itself – it is Program! This is a perfect gory and very violent Crime Thriller in the vein of the late ’70s and early ’80s Movies from Italy that we all love so much from the Golden Age of Horror! You can feel that the director Darren Ward has been inspired by a lot of great directors like Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and Sergio Martini, when You are watching this Movie! His favourite genres are obviously (like we also experienced in our interview with him here on The Daily Horror) Poliziotessco (Italian / Euro Crime Thrillers) and Horror Movies from Italy… and he pays tribute to all this in his latest Movie „A Day of Violence“! The movie itself has been produced with a smaller budget, but this doesn’t do bad at all – to the opposite: Director Darren Ward proves with this movie that You do not need a big budget like Hollywood to produce a real good Crime Thriller with a lot of high Tension, Action and also very well done (handmade!) gory effects! This Movie is too good to be simply called a „B-Movie“ at last! The Cast is great too and You can also see the great Italian Badboy Giovanni Lombardo Radice playing a Cameo Role right at the Beginning of the Movie where he is playing a dirty old Drug Dealer who gets his throat sliced! So the Italian Bad Boy gets again  killed in a traditional Way! 🙂 Very nice to see that the director Darren Ward knows how to put some „spice“ with such a Italian movie icon into his movie as he perfectly fits into it and gives the movie even a deeper atmosphere of the 80’s!  The whole tension in this movie is great so that the 91 minutes playing time go over very fast and without leaving any boring moment or dumb storylines! This is the way how a good Crime thriller should be created! The ingredients are: A good and interesting Story (Scripting is perfect here!), a continously high Tension, authentic actors, shocking Suspense, Action (there is even a big Car Crash and there are many cool shooting-scenes in the warehouse going on!), a lot of shocking Cruelty and of course – not to forget – Violence! And in this flick there are no barrels held! This Movie is definitely not for the weak at Heart… but I guess I do not have to point this out any further here when You just take a look at the Screens from our Gallery! 🙂 The most brutal and violent scene in „A Day of Violence“ is without any doubt the castration scene, in which director Darren Ward pushed the borders of Extremity into new – previously unknown – Dimensions! But I will not tell You much more here now… You will definitely have to check out A DAY OF VIOLENCE for Yourself… if You are into Extreme Crime Movies ! You will be taken back onto a Trip into the Dark Side of the 80’s and will not regret it, if You are a Fan of Giallo Movies or Crime Thrillers! Atmosphere and Soundtrack are also top-notch – so check this Movie out now and GET IT from Your local Horror Dealer! This is one of the best Crime Thrillers I have seen in the last years… So Big Thumbs Up! I am looking forward to the next Movie of Darren Ward – as I am expecting much more great Stuff to come out from this very talented director!

Rating: 9 / 10
