Doomsday (2008)

Directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent)

Featuring: Rhona Mitra, Bob Hoskins

We celebrate the release of Zero Signal, the new novel from our Author-in-Residence, Scott Jones, with a blast of post-apocalyptic sci-fi action from the director of The Descent

"This is 28 Days Later meets Escape From New York with Malcolm McDowell as a loony laird leading the Mad Macs." - Philip French, The Guardian

"Man, I really hope when the world does end, we have a contingent of survivors who take it upon themselves to not only become cannibals but make a freakin’ spectator sport out of the practice. Because if Neil Marshall’s love letter to post-apocalyptic movies of old, Doomsday, is any indication, eating the flesh of others is fun!" - Johnny Butane, Dread Central

"You will find bits and pieces of The Omega Man, Escape From New York, and The Road Warrior, among many others. The result feels a bit like a medley of greatest hits performed by a hot, young talent who brings a new vocal inflection to the tired, old standards, revitalizing them for a new generation of listeners." - Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique

From the director of The Descent comes an action-packed thrill ride through the beating heart of hell!  To save humanity from an epidemic, an elite fighting unit must battle to find a cure in a post-apocalyptic zone controlled by a society of murderous renegades.  Loaded with ferocious fights and high-octane chases, Doomsday grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go till its explosive end!
