->''There's no place to hide on... the Day of the Animals.''

A 1977 nature horror film directed by William Girdler (''Film/{{Grizzly}}'', ''Manitou'').

In a higher area of United States, a group of people take a backpacking trip through it. Their timing is rather unfortunate, since the [[GlobalWarming ongoing depletion of ozone layer]] has exposed the animals to higher dozes of UV-radiation, which has driven them mad. And by "mad", we mean " they target humans specifically".

!!This film has the examples of:

* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: The ''entire nature''. Or, at least the one residing in higher areas.
* AttemptedRape: Jenson, in his newfound alpha male fervour, decides to rape Beth since he "killed a man for her" and thusly thinks thar he now owns her.
* BearsAreBadNews: A bear makes a well timed appearance to stop Jenson raping Beth. He then tries to wrestle the bear, dying in the process.
* TheEndOrIsIt: The film ends with the eagle, that has seemingly been leading the animals, flying at the screen, suggesting that danger is not over yet.
* FailedASpotCheck: During the first leg of the cast's journey, they consistently fail to notice the various dangerous animals that are watching them at close proximity.
* GhostTown: After an arduous journey out of the woods, Frank and the little girl he found on the way find the nearby town evacuated, with only animals and couple coprses in sight.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Jenson kills Beth's boyfriend by impaling him with his walking stick.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even before driven over the edge by the hotter-than-usual sunlight, Jenson acts like a total dick to everyone.
* LeftForDead: Due to the relentless onslaught by a pack of dogs, two cast members are left for dead as the remaining ones flee for their lives.
* TheNicknamer: Jenson refers to everyone to by the nicknames he has given to them, "Hot Shot" for Buckner, "[[Franchise/TheLoneRanger Kemosabe]]" for Santee, and so on.
* OpeningScroll: The film opens with text that tells about the depletion of ozone layer, and how the events in the film are something "that might happen".
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: When Frank finally makes it into civilization, he runs into two cars filled with snakes, [[spoiler: the second one leading to his death]].
* SavageWolves: As the cast sleeps peacefully, a lone wolf suddenly attacks Mandy and scars her face badly. This forces her and her husband Frank to split up from the others to get to the local forest ranger point.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To William Girdler's previous film ''Film/{{Grizzly}}'', for sharing the similar location, plot, and some of the cast.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Jenson stops wearing a shirt when he and couple others split from the main group.
* TheXOfY
