K.D.Barker’s retro sci-fi movie ‘On the Shoulder of Giants’ needs your help

Well, to be honest, you don’t need to do much, but check out the teaser trailer below. Director of On the Shoulder of Giants, K.D.Barker, introduces the trailer, and asks very nicely I might add, if you could share the trailer with as many friends as possible. Not too much to ask is it? To be honest, the film itself looks really cool, really retro and could prove very satisfying to those wanting to go back in time.

Fifteen years earlier the starship Leviathan (with Zepethar aboard and propelled by his first version of an ER drive) disappeared on its maiden voyage. As the only other vessel equipped with an

The Andromeda’s crew locate the crashed Leviathan on Theta-25L, a desolate planet 45,000 light years from Earth. Whilst attempting to contact the Leviathan, the Andromeda’s captain is killed. This untimely tragedy imposes the captaincy on Commander Jane Altaire.

After fifteen years on Theta-25L, Zepethar is the sole survivor of the Leviathan’s crew. When Commander Altaire begins searching for answers to the Leviathan’s demise, it soon becomes apparent both Zepethar and Theta-25L harbour terrifying secrets…

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
