Badass Trailer for Aussie The Dark Lurking

The Dark LurkingIt’s not often that a film is able to slip under our radar for too long, so imagine my surprise when reader Gilbert dropped us a line with a heads up about a new Aussie horror/action hybrid called The Dark Lurking.

Yeah, not a big fan of the title, but holy shit you have to see this trailer. It doesn’t tell you much about the film, but it does harken back to Aliens in a very intentional way, I’m sure. I don’t think even Aliens had this much juicy red stuff, though. Wow.

The effects look striking on more levels than just the gore, too; giant interiors, space ships, armor and, of course, monsters. This is one damn impressive trailer, kids.

The Dark Lurking is the story of 8 survivors stuck in a facility one mile beneath the earth’s surface where creatures are picking off anything living one by one. I have no idea when it’s coming out or if it even has a release set yet, but rest assured we’ll be keeping an eye on it for ya!

Now, for that trailer…

    Holy shit. Total ALIENS vibe to that trailer and that’s a great thing in my book. Definitely a movie I want to see whenever it hits DVD here.

    Just found out I may be covering it for Icons of Fright, if all goes well it’ll be the first interview! I’m shitting in my pant as we speak.

    It looks like a cross between Event Horizon and Doom!!

    I’m with Johnny. If it looks cool, it looks cool. But yeah it’s got an Aliens/Gunhead thing going no doubt about it.

  • PelusaMG

    True, it doesn’t look low budget, but if it did slightly err that way, I would swear this was an Asylum mockbuster… “The ETs”?

  • Johnny Butane

    Ah, you’re all bastards. It’s low budget but doesn’t look it, and what’s wrong with a bit of Aliens? Dicks.

  • Kryten Syxx

    I like the visuals, but Andrew’s right … this thing is borrowing way too much from Alien and Aliens.

  • Sirand

    Oh, look. A remake of Aliens.
