description

A pre-apocalyptic comedy, DOOMSDAYS follows the misadventures of Dirty Fred and Bruho, a pair of squatters with a taste for unoccupied vacation homes in the Catskills.

Dirty Fred and Bruho aren’t optimistic about the state of the modern world. Convinced that dwindling petroleum resources will soon bring forth an economic collapse, they’ve dropped out of productive (and vehicular) society, choosing instead a life of free-wheeling vagabondage. As they trek across the Catskills, they break into a series of vacation homes, holing up until they either run out of food or are chased off. The pattern is interrupted, however, when they run across a lonely teenage boy who insists on joining them. No sooner is he assimilated than an aimless young woman also comes along for the ride, and the dynamic of the group changes with significant consequences for all.

Intelligent, funny and genuinely anarchistic-minded, DOOMSDAYS is a reinvention of the slacker/buddy comedy and an eccentric, eco-conscious screw-the-world battle cry.
