When a deadly virus is unleashed upon the world, wiping out most of humanity, the last remaining survivors are forced to live underground. But while they survive inside self-sustaining bunkers, they come to the painful realization that living in extreme isolation is just as deadly as the virus itself.
If you like inventive, low-budget sci-fi movies like "Cube" or "Moon," then you may want to check this out: the trailer for "Domain." It's a post-apocalyptic indie thriller that just premiered this past weekend at the Other Worlds Austin Fest, and will screen in early January at the Miami Sci-Fi Film Festival.
Written and directed with a '80s retro-tech style by indie filmmaker and television editor Nathaniel Atcheson, "Domain" features a strong ensemble cast that includes Britt Lower (Man Seeking Woman), Ryan Merriman (Pretty Little Liars), Sonja Sohn (The Wire), Kevin Sizemore (Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462), Nick Gomez (The Walking Dead), Cedric Sanders (The Social Network) and William Gregory Lee (Justified).
Veteran character actress Beth Grant (Jackie, The Mindy Project) also appears in the movie, playing the designer of the "LSB-300 life-support bunker" in pre-recorded video messages.
"Domain" will likely run on the festival circuit next year as it looks to strike a distribution deal with potential buyers.
After a deadly virus wipes out most of humanity, the survivors are forced to wait alone in self-sustaining bunkers while the viral threat runs its course. Able to communicate through a networked video interface, the survivors wait for years and slowly become a motley family of sorts. But their fragile social ecosystem is shattered when, one by one, they start mysteriously disappearing from their bunkers.
