‘The Domestics’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Kate Bosworth, Tyler Hoechlin, David Dastmalchian, Sonoya Mizuno, Laura Cayouette, Lance Reddick | Written and Directed by Mike P. Nelson

This entertaining post-apocalyptic thriller marks an auspicious feature debut for sound designer-turned-writer-director Mike P. Nelson. Essentially it’s The Road meets The Warriors, with a bit of Mad Max: The Road Warrior thrown in for good measure.

In a scene-setting prologue, we learn of an apocalyptic event, in which jet planes dumped black poison gas on America, killing half the population. The survivors quickly segregated into various cult-like groups or tribes, with names like the Sheets, the Cherries, the Plowboys, the Nailers and the Gamblers. Those who remain unaffiliated to a group are known as The Domestics, and they have to remain constantly vigilant against gang attacks. Two such Domestics are Mark and Nina West, a couple on the brink of divorce who become concerned about Nina’s family in Milwaukee,

Wrong Turn Remake Is Happening with Original Creator

Wrong Turn Remake Is Happening with Original Creator
Wrong Turn is the latest movie to be given the remake treatment in Hollywood. Familiar IP has become a hot-ticket item in the modern landscape, both on the big and small screen, as studios look for any sort of edge in the fight for viewership. The line of thinking, which often proves to be correct, is that any form of familiarity will have a leg-up on the competition, as opposed to getting audiences on board with something totally new. Now, the long-running horror franchise is set to abandon its continuity in favor of a new take.

According to a new report, original creator Alan McElroy is set to pen the screenplay for the Wrong Turn remake, with Mike P. Nelson (The Domestics) on board to direct. Constantine Film is behind the remake. Beyond that, there are precious few details available, nor is it clear how far along the movie is in the development process.
