Neil Marshall who directed two of the best British horror/sci-fi films in recent memory, ‘Dog Soldiers’ and ‘The Decent’ returns with a post-apocalyptic vision of the future in ‘Doomsday.’
In this trailer it starts with a strong nod to ’28 Weeks Later’ as a virus ravaged Scotland is sectioned off to avoid contaminating the rest of the UK, not a bad idea?
Marshall’s love of James Cameron comes to the fore as heroine Rhona Mitra leads a crack team into the forbidden zone many years later in search of a cure in sequences ‘inspired’ by Aliens.
Then the whole thing goes a bit ‘Mad Max’ as a vagabond band of ‘survivors’ lead by Malcolm McDowell go mental and much mayhem ensues.
Looks pretty decent, despite some wooden turns by the largely British cast, judge for yourself.
