Five individuals from five nations, including the "Superpowers," USA, USSR, and
China, suddenly find themselves on an alien spacecraft. An alien gives each a
container holding capsules. No power on earth can open a given container except
a mental command from the person to whom it is given. Each person has been
provided with the power of life and death. Any of these individuals has the
capability to instantaneously launch the capsules to whatever coordinates he/she
chooses, and each capsule will then eradicate all human life within a 3,000-mile
radius of its designated location.


Some Reviews (taken from IMDB)

from Noel Bailey:

Grossly undervalued, under-marketed and overlooked piece of Scifi.
Intellectually right up there with THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and presenting
in some ways many of the inter-racial and socially irresponsible foibles that
human-kind finds so entrenched. Made at a time of the escalating Cold War, the
film unashamedly picks its sides but hey, its an American production!

I saw the film on its initial release when I was just 12, I could hardly then
lay claim to knowledge of all things political, but I KNEW a good film when I
saw one. In the viewings since (and it is shown way too infrequently on cable) I
have come to admire its message and inherent brilliance.

An alien civilisation whose planet is pretty much the next dead thing (WAR OF
THE WORLDS, THIS ISLAND EARTH, etc) looks to speed up destruction of the human
condition by giving a representative of each of the five super-powers the
ability to eradicate life in totality. For the purpose, an alien drops in with a
few vials of 'wipe-out' and hands them out to the chosen five before retiring to
the referee's corner to watch the game.

Gene Barry, who played it so cool in WAR OF THE WORLDS is the US agent with the
chiselled chin and all the right accreditation. The supporting cast are all good
and with hands-on direction, about the only thing to let it down are the micro-
cosmic budget-restrictions. It remains though a classic film of the genre and is
deserving of a much higher profile than that it currently enjoys. Probably due
for a remake about this time.


From scotmachigh

This a very thoughtful film. Even though the film takes place in 1957 the
subject matter is current into todays world. The film makes you think of society
as a whole. Not of just one nation. The ills and the good of human relations
with each other and our surroundings. How far we would go to make this world a
far better place or a Hell of earth. It makes you stop and think, what would you
do with the power the people were given in the film. The effects were average
for a film of the time period. Great effects were not needed though. Watch,
listen and think. The film gets better each time you watch it.


From BaronBl00d

An alien ship picks up five different people from the five super powers of the
world. There he gives each a device that only they can open. Each device
contains three vials that have the power to annihilate every human being on
Earth. The aliens are a dying race from a dying planet, and even though they can
and will not destroy mankind on earth, they will speed up the process of seeing
whether mankind will destroy itself. How long is the experiment of seeing
whether these five will survive and live without opening the vials? 27 days.
This is a thought-provoking film about the nature of man more than anything. The
underlying point behind the film is that mankind needs to rise from its child-
like state of fighting and killing itself over seemingly petty issues. The
aliens act merely as referees watching and waiting to see if the Soviet Union
will destroy North America or vice versa. Now, the film definitely has an anti-
communist slant(not that there is anything wrong with that)but admonishes all
negativity, power hunger, and perniciousness in humankind worldwide. Director
Will Asher does a fine job setting up the pace of the story and creating
tension. The script, even though very weak in some areas, is quite interesting
and full of thoughtful insights. Gene Barry plays the American representative
and is good as a cynic. The rest of the cast is also very good with George
Voskovec as a German scientist and Stephan Schnabel as a Soviet general standing
out. Arnold Moss is the alien and he certainly makes his screen presence
memorable. A good film. After watching I kept wondering what I would do if given
the same circumstances, and I must confess I am so very happy that that burden
lies not on my shoulders! Take some time to see The 27th Day and enjoy!

This is intended to be played on a PC or a HTPC. If it works on your standalone
player, good for you. You can always convert it to a regular DVD using tools as

Size has been calculated in order to get the optimum PQ without oversizing the
file, hence the irregular size of the file (not the usual 700Mb/1.4Gb rip). A
rate of Bits/(Pixel*Frame) around 0.3 is perfect, above that point, picture
quality becomes virtually the same to the original source.

Check you have installed the right codecs, as listed in this .nfo file, before
trying to play it. VLC will play this file without having to install any codec.

If you don't like the codec(s), container, resolution, file size, languages or
any technical aspect on this rip, keep it to yourself and if you're able, go and
do your own.

Serious feedback on quality will always be welcome.
