From legendary horror writer/director Neil Marshall comes the action-packed thriller DOOMSDAY. Full of kick-ass action, explosive stunts and buckets of gore, DOOMSDAY heralds the dawning of a new dark age. Set in Scotland and amidst a ghoulish terrain of corpse-strewn cities, this 'aftermath' thriller takes a bizarre and brutal look into a near future where our very existence is threatened by a horrific virus.
2008: Within days of outbreak, the horrific 'Reaper Virus' has infected millions in Scotland. The British government declares Scotland a 'hot zone' and quarantines the entire country to contain the 'Reaper's' spread. Imprisoned by military blockades, Scotland is sealed off from the rest of the world, and left to die...
2033: The 'Reaper Virus' has resurfaced - this time in London. Faced with apocalypse, the Prime Minister (Alexander Siddig) and the true power behind his office, Michael Canaris (David O'Hara) summon police chief Bill Nelson (Bob Hoskins), to reveal satellite images of survivors in the streets of Glasgow. Nelson assembles a crack team of specialists to retrieve 'the cure'. Led by feisty female major, Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra), the team venture into a forgotten Scotland....where they discover the true horror of the Reaper's legacy and two warring tribes, ruled by Dr. Kane (Malcolm McDowell) and his estranged son, Sol (Craig Conway).
Neil Marshall's debut feature (as both writer and director), DOG SOLDIERS (2002), became a cult hit. His second, groundbreaking feature came in the form of THE DESCENT (2005), the underground horror film which went on to win a Saturn Award for Best Horror Film, two British Independent Film Awards (for Best Director and Best Editor) and the Empire Award for Best Horror Film. DOOMSDAY is Neil's much anticipated third feature.
