A team of tough marines are send on a mission to check out a distress call from another planet. The people on the planet are practising dangerous experiments turning scientists into demonic blood thirsty space zombies.

Sequel to Doom (2005) and 1:1 copy of Aliens (1986). Basically they re-did Aliens on a budget right down to the Burke character. The only thing missing was Newt.
Surprisingly, Doom: Annihilation uses its low budget wisely as it looks pretty good. No cheap cardboard setting and no overuse of cheap CGI. There's plenty of well done handmade gore, blood splatter and zombie make up effects. The movie fails at offering sympathetic characters, good acting (it wasn't bad but it wasn't good either), originality, a sense for creating tension, scares and getting the audience engaged with an interesting plot. So, in the end I was only waiting for the next bloody kill.

Worth a rental when in the mood for a modern bad movie that doesn't look like a SyFy production, and perfect with the very similar Storage 24 (2012) if you're planning a bad movie double feature of films you've never seen.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
