These days, backlash culture is so firmly entrenched that it's hard to know what movies to love. One second, the world is excited about "Juno"; the next, people are practically picketing it. It's anti-choice! She would have used birth control! The music is annoying!
It's much easier -- and less emotionally confusing -- to love a movie that everyone else hates, such as "Doomsday."
That is, they would hate it if they saw it. "Doomsday," directed by Neil Marshall, was released in theaters in March and was seen by statistically zero people, other than critics who did not like it -- "frenetic, loud, wildly imprecise," said the New York Times -- and a tiny crowd of individuals who love an apocalyptic plague story with a cannibalism subplot.
Which to my surprise includes me. Assuming it does not include you, a brief "Doomsday" primer: Scotland has been overrun by a disgusting plague and is wholly quarantined, with all of its inhabitants left to die. But they don't. Many years later, when the plague has come to London, a young woman named Eden (Rhona Mitra) is charged with leading a military expedition into Scotland to find whether the survivors have a cure. She finds that most of them have turned into cannibals -- mean ones -- led by a man improbably named Sol.
