Harbinger Down's much hyped Kickstarter Project was funded this week, it's main selling feature? Practical effects. No CGI. And an amazing team of artists to bring it to life.
What is Harbinger Down?
In the spirit of sci-fi/horror classics, Alien and The Thing, Harbinger Down is a tense, claustrophobic full-length creature film that will feature only practical Animatronic and Makeup Effects.
The trailer is straight up intense - with good glimpses of the creatures, and even a sneak peek at some of the gore that we're in for.
Starring Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Terminator, AVP), Matt Winston (Fight Club, A.I.), and a cast of relative (and likely expendable) unknowns, if the trailer is to be trusted, we're in for a gory, sci-fi action creature feature that is going to be gory, tense, and with my fingers crossed I'm hoping it will be badass.
The Story: A group of grad students have booked passage on the fishing trawler Harbinger to study the effects of global warming on a pod of Orcas in the Bering Sea. When the ship's crew dredges up a recently thawed piece of old Soviet space wreckage, things get downright deadly. It seems that the Russians experimented with tardigrades, tiny resilient animals able to withstand the extremes of space radiation. The creatures survived, but not without mutation.
