Selected via a lottery process a group of people are saved from a virus which has wiped out the human race. Stuck in separate underground bunkers seven survivors are linked up via a digital domain where they can interact with each other in a chat room style video chat. But not all is as it seems when the group exile one of the members from the group, leading to creepy events. One by one the group are taken from their rooms not to be seen again, but what is this dark figure taking them?
Domain is very similar to films like The Divide, it focuses on human behaviour after an end of the world scenario, and this is one of the shining things about this movie, human interaction. Who are these people? What are their stories? What happened to them before the end of mankind? We get this from each of the characters here, and as the film progresses the dark side of some of their pasts begin the surface. This leads to a gripping final half, which you can kind of see coming but doesn’t take away anything from the film as a whole.
The acting is perfect to be honest, I was behind each and every character, well until the back stories kicked in then you hate some of them! But the twists and turns are well played out. I love the direction here too, it is hard to make a film like this speak loud enough to be noticed among similar films of the genre, which speaks volumes for the director and the films writer.
This is a must see film and I hope it gets a DVD or VOD release soon after the festival ends.
