Day 6 (2011/One 7 Movies DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C Film: C+

Day 6 is a creepy foreign alien thriller with an effective narrative with some pretty impressive special effects. Now I'm a pretty big fan of sci-fi and have seen lots of terrible alien films over the years and judging by the cover, thought I was in for another doozy. But this film actually brings up some interesting theories on extraterrestrials and crafts a pretty creepy thriller along the way that feels pretty original. Despite its low budget, Varo Venturi's Day 6 will give you the creeps and make you stop and think.

Dr. Piso, a brave scientist, has been studying for years the worrying phenomenon of alien abductions through an innovative technique of hypnosis used to help trigger recessed memories. Enter the young and beautiful Saturnia who comes along and everything starts to change once he hypnotizes her. Saturnia will not leave the trance condition anymore, giving place to Hexabor of Ur - an entity coming from ancient Mesopotamian breeds - that states to be the first of his race that can totally ''inhabit'' a human body, and is now ready to lead the final invasion, to which the mankind was genetically prepared.

The discovery that Saturnia's parents belongs to black aristocracy, and would like to have back their daughter but with the entity inside, will push the scientist to hold the girl, constantly sedating her, in the attempt to gain time and find a solution.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track. The film looks fine for DVD, but I wouldn't mind seeing it again on a potential Blu-ray. Extras include a Trailer and Documentary entitled ''Sci-Real''.

I would suggest this film to fans of The X-Files or The Mothman Prophecies.
