Doomsday typifies the kind of movie that gets dumped into theaters during the late winter -- a regurgitated storyline, no big stars, and no real prospects at the box office.

Doomsday is a mess of lousy filmmaking and unrelenting artistic bankruptcy, smashed together to form an ear-splitting, overcooked, awfully irritating shell of an experience.

If you can accept this farrago of nonsense, and enjoy simulated beheadings and lopped-off hands and massive spurts and splashes of blood, this may be the movie for you.

It feels at times that the only thing that hasn't been appropriated is the Filthiest Toilet in Scotland from "Trainspotting," though it is filled with the decidedly unpleasant substance found on, near and in said receptacle
