In the early to mid-2020s, a virus has eliminated all of humankind but
approximately 8,000 people - one of them being Zorack (Phil Herman), a
lone wolf who has long turned his back on us humans. 30 years later, he
stumbles across a recently killed woman and takes possession of her
journal of doomsday stories, which he reads for entertainment:
- A Broken Promise: Back when, Rick (Justin Bauer), was a
really happy man with a loving pregnant wife Emma (Lillian Lamour, a
new home, and everything to look forward to - but then the virus
struck and took everything, and now he spends his days roaming the
countryside as a scavenger with his dog Lucy, on the verge of losing
his last vestiges of humanity. That said, he has still one last
mission to fulfill, even if that mission is heartbreaking ...
- Bomb Threats: When a bomb threat hits Philadelphia, Katrina
(Debbie D) remembers Alvin (Jim Ewald), a guy she has once turned down
but who claimed to have a bomb shelter, and now she's hoping for his
assistance. Thing is, Alvin isn't quite the innocent and harmless nerd
she has believed him to be ...
- Zorack's sister Kate (Constance Payne), a professional fighter,
thought herself too tough for the virus - but there's more to it than
just a common cold ...
- Forever Man: In a world overrun by zombies, the president
(Heather Carson) of a small and poor country decides to turn the
populace into organ donors for richer areas. And since people need to
eat, who can really afford to turn the offer down? But there's a
secret gouvernment plan behind it all, to build a cyber-organic
- Zorack and Kelly (Alba O'Neill) are to meet their friend Frank (Carl
J Grasso) at a cabin to sit out the virus - but Frank and Kelly aren't
doing that great anymore ...
- 187 Times: It's 2050, and scientist James Kirk (Joel D.
Wynkoop) - pun intended - wants to stop the outbreak of the virus in
2020 and save his wife (M. Catherine Wynkoop) via time travel. But
changing the future by changing the past isn't as simple as it sounds
When it comes to (post) doomsday stories, there's more than one way to
skin a cat, and Doomsday Stories ably proves this, as the segments
collected here vary vastly in approach, from zombie tale to psycho
thriller, to political commentary to time travel story and everything
in-between - and that's really what makes this movie so very watchable,
despite a common theme it doesn't let itself be tied down to a common
formula but treats its premise from a host of different angles, with a
likewise changing tone, from the dead serious to the ironic to the
slightly trashy, so it's a little bit for everyone - and while not all
segments might be everyone's kind of tea, it's overall still a very
