Went the Day Well? 2006 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Of all the propaganda films produced by Britain during the war, no motion picture was as shattering as this fictional — yet frighteningly real — story of heroes, traitors and graphic homeland terror. In the spring of 1942, the quaint rural village of Bramley End is occupied by a German platoon expertly disguised as friendly British troops. In the days that follow, the men, women and children of the isolated town must single-handedly outsmart and destroy the Nazi force before their invasion can spread to the rest of an unsuspecting nation. Leslie Banks, Thora Hird, Mervyn Johns and Basil Sydney star in this chilling thriller adapted from a short story by Graham Greene and produced by the legendary Ealing Studios that would later inspire both THE EAGLE HAS LANDED and RED DAWN. Rarely seen in America — where it received limited release under the title 48 HOURS — it remains as explicit and shocking a movie experience today as it was to wartime audiences more than 60 years ago.
