Back in May of 2013 we told you about Harbinger Down, a tense, claustrophobic creature film that will feature only practical animatronic and makeup effects. We’ve followed the movie through every phase including a successful crowd funding campaign. Today the hard work and faith pays off!
Alec Gillis wrote and directed the flick with ADI co-founder Tom Woodruff, Jr. producing. Lance Henriksen, Matt Winston, Camille Balsamo, and Giovonnie Samuels star.
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 3 decades, the creatures aren’t about to give up the warmth of human companionship.
