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.

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.

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"?

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

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