The claustrophobic locked room mystery takes a new and deadly level of intensity in DOMAIN, a sci fi end of the world thriller that is top notch from beginning to end.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of viewing the indie scifi thriller DOMAIN ahead of its world premiere at the Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival. The film is about a group of bunker dwelling survivors of a worldwide plague who are in communication with a handful of other survivors in the underground "Domain.
Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival has announced its second wave of programming for Austin’s first and only SciFi film festival (Dec 1-4) at Flix Brewhouse. The 2016 slate includes the World Premiere of DOMAIN, the North American Premieres of VULCANIA and ORIGIN, dual centerpiece films WE GO ON and VIRTUAL REVOLUTION, as well as BE MY CAT: A FILM FOR ANNE and SOMNIO, all Texas premieres.
Directed by Nathaniel Atcheson (also responsible for Austin Film Festival comedy award-winner Herpes Boy), it follows seven survivors of a world-ending apocalypse. Or rather, doesn't follow them, since they're all locked in individual bunkers, sealed in until the mysterious Saharan flu abates. The only way to stay in contact is through a video link system called Domain.
