This Kickstarter funded indie creature feature features a group of graduate students studying the effects of global warming on a pod of Orcas in the Bering Sea. After discovering a block of ice infected by alien bacteria, they are soon infected by shape shifting alien organisms.
Writer and director Alec Gillis went the Kickstarter route in order to make a creature feature the old fashioned way with practical special effects, no CGI to be found here.
Lance Henriksen, having been in such films as Terminator, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and of course the Alien franchise, lends a certain amount of credibility that true fans of horror and sci-fi will appreciate.
Harbinger Down will be released in select theaters and VOD on August 7th.
