ZOMBIE FILM FRIDAY: Doomsday | #NotZombiesButStillGood #PostApocalyptic

While Doomsday is not a Zombie film, the cannibalistic and post-apocalyptic elements make it a fantastic film to showcase. If you’ve yet to see it, give it a watch.

doomsdayA lethal virus spreads throughout Scotland, infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands. To contain the threat, acting authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The quarantine is successful. Three decades later, the Reaper virus violently resurfaces in London. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair, is urgently dispatched into Scotland to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare.

My Rating: A

Interesting Facts: Though the film takes place in London and Scotland, most of principal photography was done in South Africa and the last scene shot on the continent before moving to the UK was the lengthy car chase with the Bentley crashing through the bus; the film was made into a haunted house at Universal’s “Halloween Horror Nights” in Orlando Florida; and Scottish Screen contributed 300,000 pounds towards the film’s budget.

And now it’s time for the trailer…
