Four loosely connected tales all set in Doomsday County:
- Vampire Academy: A bunch of beer-guzzling bored students (you
know the kind) invite the pizza guy into their room - to suck him dry,
because they are vampires.
- Xenombie: It's lightning class at film school, and one of the
students drops a highly toxic Xenon lightbulb, which emits some kind
of gas turning students into zombies. Thank god for film theory
professor Eddie Tapia (Paul Petrus) then ...
- The Curse Of Dr Mongoo: When cops Chops (Paul Alessi) and
Montgomery (Mike Santi) have to shoot a guy in a barroom brawl and his
body decomposes way too quickly, they know evil Dr Mongoo (John Archer
Lundgren) has to be somehow involved. But they don't know what
they have gotten themselves into (hint: more zombies) ...
- Betty Beretta: Betty Beretta (Tara Lightfoot), punk musician
and gouvernment agent when it comes to alien invasions, is called in
to prevent an alien invasion. But while she's busy preventing it, Dr
Mongoo is busy wiping out her organisation's headquarters, and when
she wants to go against him, he proves to much for her to handle on
her own. Thank God the heroes of the previous stories happen to stop
by, Eddie Tapia, Chops and Montgomery, and yes, even the vampire

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!
Doomsday County is far from being the perfect anthology, as the
four stories at hand differ too much in style while all seemingly fishing
in the same narrative pond, so while some of the segments are genuinely
funny, others take themselves seriously in all the wrong places, and by
and large, the humour is very uneven, too.
That said, tieing up the four
stories in the end is at least a fun idea and amusingly executed, Tara
Lightfoot is the cutest tough-as-nails chick in quite a while, and a good
balance between humour and gore should at least make this a good party
movie - so do watch it with beer and friends!!!
