New ‘Harbinger Down’ trailer reminds me of The Thing, and it looks awesome!


The sci-fi horror Harbinger Down has unleashed a brand new trailer, and it looks incredible.

Boasting lots of creatures and practical effects, and based in a work station in the snow, the film clearly took influence from John Carpenters The Thing, but it really does look superb.

Check out the trailer and I am sure you’ll share in my excitement for this film, which has a freakin crazy trailer.

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.
