Harbinger Down Official Trailer (2014)

So excited to be a part of this. This trailer premiered yesterday and being a backer, I was able to see it in advance along with approximately 50 other updates from ADI over the last year. If you are unaware of this film, it is a horror/sci-fi flick literally created by the guys behind T2, Aliens, The Thing, Tremors, Pumpkinhead and countless other classic monster flicks that use unbelievable practical/in-camera effects. This movie uses ONLY practical effects and make-up to create the terror within. It had a hard time finding footing in Hollywood and so became the focus of a Kickstarter campaign. Having this trailer show up yesterday finally cemented my investment in the film a reality. While, not all of the effects are completely finished yet, even for this trailer. I can assure you the final product looks stellar.

I am so proud to be a backer of this film and to be one of the reasons that it was finally able to be made. I won’t say how much I put towards the movie, but it was…enough. I’m so stoked to get all of the perk items for donating cash, which includes a limited edition of the bluray, signed pieces or memorabilia and a ton of other stuff tied to the film. Also, to have one of my favorite horror actors, Lance Henriksen, starring in the film, I am just totally geeking out over this. Get ready for Harbinger Down, it’s gonna be wicked.

Synopsis: 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.

Help Fund “Harbinger Down”!

This is absolutely one of the coolest movie projects I’ve seen in a long time and I really hope it gets funded. I have personally backed this film and I hope a lot of others do too. Please read the campaign article and watch the videos over at Kickstarter. I really can’t believe how awesome this looks. An effects driven creature feature that will have ABSOLUTELY NO digital effects of any kind. ONLY MAKE-UP AND ANIMATRONIC EFFECTS. If other films can get millions of dollars from fans I think this movie can reach it’s $350,000 goal in the next 24 days. Let’s make it happen!!!http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1117671683/harbinger-down-a-practical-creature-fx-film
