Based on a true story.
Hillbilly Doomsday is an extremely dark and comedic tale of
Texas' first murder of the new millennium.
December 31, 1999, rural East Texas.
With Y2K paranoia at a fevered pitch, two drunken hillbilly
brothers hole up in their wooded shack and await the year 2000.
The second hand strikes midnight, the power shuts off and suddenly
the brothers' nightmarish Y2K fears are realized. Certain that
the apocalypse is upon them they hastily formulate a plan to
prepare for the bleak and uncompromising future. What follows
is the brutally funny, heinously violent and nearly botched
murder of their survivalist cousin who they kill in an effort
to steal his guns and provisions and to make ready for the new
post-apocalyptic world of the future.
Doomsday was shot with a cast of 3 and a crew of 4 in late 2000.
Soon after production wrapped, the footage was lost and remained
in limbo for over three years. After re-discovering the master
tapes in late 2003, Hillbilly Doomsday was cut together as ntended
and is finally being unleashed upon the world. Hillbilly Doomsday
features Jerry “Toe” Clark of “Rock Opera”
fame, Michael Dalmon and Mark Hanks and is written and directed
by Bob Ray.
