The beast unleashed in new stills from ‘Harbinger Down’



Four new stills have been released for upcoming creature feature, Harbinger Down, and one of them finally gives us a look at the monster, sort of.

Fans of The Thing and Alien are going to love Harbinger Down, a new sci-fi horror that not only stars the great Lance Henriksen, but also promises to use good old fashioned practical effects only.

Alec Gillis ( creature effects designer Aliens, Leviathan, Wolf, Starship Troopers, Skyline, Ender’s Game) writes and directs, and the cast includes Lance Henriksen, Matt Winston, Giovonnie Samuels and Camille Balsamo.


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.

Now the crew is exposed to aggressively mutating organisms. And after being locked in ice for three decades, the creatures aren’t about to give up the warmth of human companionship.

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.
