Amy Blue (Rose McGowan) and her boyfriend Jordan White (James Duval) pick up drifter Xavier Red (Johnathan Schaech) and embark on an ultra-violent road trip. DOOM is a scathing, satirical romp through dystopian, heterosexual America — where sex and violence overlap in the most mundane cultural spaces: the Quick-E-Mart and drive-through. Come for the dreamscape of celeb cameos. Stay for stylistic haze of color (and see why director Gregg Araki has been called the “godfather of bisexual lighting”). Leave with new inspiration on how to be a queer renegade.
“A stylized exploration of queer teenage malaise and eroticism amidst the futility of the ‘90s cultural wasteland.” —Kamikaze Jones, Wussy “Like the generation it chronicles, DOOM offers no apologies. It’s unsafe, unnerving and primed to explode.” —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
