Synopsis

Dirty Fred (Justin Rice) and Bruho (Leo Fitzpatrick) aren’t sanguine about the future. Convinced that dwindling petroleum resources will soon bring the modern world to a halt, they’ve dropped out of productive (and vehicular) society, choosing instead a life of free-wheeling vagabondage. As they trek across the Catskills, they break into a series of vacation homes, holing up until they either run out of food or are chased off. The pattern is interrupted, however, when they run across a teenage boy (Brian Charles Johnson) who insists on joining them. No sooner is he assimilated than an aimless young woman (Laura Campbell) also comes aboard, and the dynamic of the group changes with significant consequences for all.

Buzz

“…might be the best American slacker film of the 21st century.” Twitch Film

“DOOMSDAYS is a uniquely good-humored act of total confrontation. It’s easily one of 2013’s greatest surprises.” Fantasia Film Festival

“Nothing about “Doomsdays” is want you expect. This summer, especially, that amounts to a minor revolution in cinema.” Indie Wire

“…surprisingly touching…first time writer and director Eddie Mullins proves that he knows what he’s doing…” – Badass Digest

Programmer’s Opinion

So the world as you know it is coming to an end, what do you do? Well, of course you decide to beat the rush and start breaking into and then live in houses that are empty while their owners are out. Dirty Fred is smart and cynical while Bruho is passionate and has a hatred of cars are joined by Jaidon, a young protege and Reyna a love interest. The four travel the empty houses of the catskills consuming the food, drinking the alcohol and reading the diaries of the housewives. Reminiscent of early Jim Jarmusch and Richard Linklater, DOOMSDAYS is a sly dark comedy about slackers who are getting a jump on the apocalypse. – John Allison
