The movie “Doomsday” came out on DVD just the other day. Always looking for a little TEOTWAWKI big screen action, I asked the Mrs. to pick it up at the rental store. It has its upsides; it has its downsides. It takes place in London in 2035. A highly contagious disease hit Scotland several decades earlier, and Scotland was walled off, the shores were mined, and a no-fly zone was instituted. 1,000 people were killed the first week, and it spread rapidly. Martial law was instituted, and people were told to wait inside their homes for help to come. Help, of course, never came. People ate dogs, rats . . . and then each other. Eventually, over time, all fires and signs of life in Scotland were extinguished – no man’s land. UNTIL . . . survivors are spotted, and there’s reason to head into no man’s land.
I don’t want to give many any of the details, but it’s an OK movie. Watch it if you’re in the mood for cheap entertainment, but not for quality SHTF survival programming. You’ll be disappointed if you watch it for the latter.
My favorite part of the movie, when this (totally hot) lady pictured below starts flashing her tattooed tongue at a captured dude over a bbq pit. Had she been flashing her tongue in a different venue (like a bedroom) it would’ve been suh-weeet!
My least favorite part is right after this scene when they toast the guy extra crispy and cut into him serving it up to the masses – lol – it was so gross. These characters had a sort of Road Warrior appeal. Now, on a scale of 1-10:
