Within a few hours, a new plague wipes out almost all of the world’s population. Trying to avoid infection, people flee to remote locations, but they start seeing mysterious black figures carrying away the dead to experiment on them. Now, Lance and Rachel, two survivors determined to fight back, must kill the leader of these creatures before the rest of humanity disappears. Written, produced, directed, and edited by Doug Roos. We’re currently raising funds for it on Kickstarter to help promote the movie and send it to more festivals: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dougroos/the-sky-has-fallen-horror-movie-feature-film
The film is about trying to make a difference despite incredible odds and dealing with the loss of loved ones. We never know when the person we love is going to be taken away from us. It’s a very personal film.
