Some of the best stories are told in an anthology series.
Following the footsteps of V/H/S, Galaxy of Horrors, and Trick ‘r Treat, Doors is a sci-fi anthology film that features three different stories about interactions with these mysterious portals that appeared around the world.
In three different timelines, the first story follows a group of high school students in detention that are trapped on their campus as they fight amongst themselves with an appearance of a door. The next story is about three scientific volunteers traveling through the door to investigate on what they may encounter on the other side. Lastly, one person’s investigation manages a breakthrough discovery with a door, but others disagree on the observations.
The series is created by Chris White. Upcoming filmmakers of Jeff Desom, Saman Kesh, and Dugan O’Neal came up and directed their stories that explores emotions and cosmic themes from their constantly shifting perspectives.
Some of the cast includes Josh Peck (Drak & Josh, Grandfathered), Lina Esco (S.W.A.T.), and Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie, Daredevil).
Here’s the official synopsis:
Without explanation or warning, a number of mysterious, alien “doors” suddenly appear in every corner of the globe. While many of those that encounter these sentient visitors feel the strange urge to interact with them—never to be seen again—others stay behind to face the potential threat of what their ultimate agenda towards mankind is. In a rush to determine the reason for the arrival of these cosmic anomalies, the government enlists volunteers to brave the journey to enter the doors so that we might learn more about their origin or purpose. But even these brave volunteers are not prepared for what lies beyond the threshold. The story of the doors is told through multiple perspectives: a ragtag band of high school students discover a door for the first time, volunteers explore the parallel reality beyond the threshold, and a lonesome hermit manages the seemingly impossible: establishing communication with the door.
LRM Online’s Gig Patta talked with directors Jeff Desom, Saman Kesh, and Dugan O’Neal on the anthology concept, film production, and their storylines.
Doors is now playing in select theaters today. It is available On Demand today and then on DVD/Blu-ray on April 6.
