A squad of soilders is sent to a research facility on Mars - can they help when hell breaks loose?

 

DOOM is set on a research facility on Mars sometime in the future. Just when the scientists discover the solution to the DNA-puzzle, something goes wrong and all hell breaks loose. A group of specially trained soldiers is sent to the planet to contain the damages but soon they find themselves fighting for survival. DOOM has kept the central elements from the computer-game and tells the story in its own kamikaze style. We follow the desperation and fear of the soldier with a view from his gun. DOOM is the tale of a violent, dark and disturbing future.
