So im sitting here watching the DOOM movie adaptation from 2005 and I'm thinking, "well this isn't terrible, they got the visual aesthetics from DOOM 3 recreated pretty faithfully, and the dialogue and action is kind of standard fare for a sci-fi shoot em up whatever whatever" but then I'm like, "if this movie was based on DOOM II's setting, it would be so much better!"
Imagine it; innocent civilians getting their heads swallowed by pinkie demons, portals to hell opening everywhere, flying skulls doing whatever it is they do, etc etc. I've always thought the coolest part about DOOM is how there are entirely too many enemies for one dude to deal with which gives it this tone that you're always just surviving by the skin of your teeth over and over again from encounter to encounter.
It wouldn't be a sequel to the previous installment. It would just be an unrelated story with a subtitle. Call it DOOM: Hell on Earth or something.
The main characters could be a small group of 3 or so characters traversing the land, constantly on the verge of being overwhelmed by the demon threat as they try to get to some government building or army base. The movie I've got playing in my head is a lot like 28 days later if there was more heavy metal in the soundtrack and fire everywhere. The climax of the movie would involve the main character (a reluctant leader of few words) going to the center of hell and killing satan and it would be totally badass. He wouldn't die at the end, but the last shot of the movie would be him shooting guns from the top of a pile of bodies like the cover art of the original game. The fight never ends credits roll. fuckin rad!
so this movie will never be made but what do YOU think?
