It has been too long since the last time we heard from the Lance Henriksen-starring creature feature HARBINGER DOWN, first unleashing its trailer nearly a year ago. That all changes today with word of a release date, which will see the practical effects driven monster movie in theaters on August 7th in both the US and Canada. Following that is a DVD/VOD release on September 1st! Nice! Watch the trailer HERE if you missed it!
Alec Gillis' creature feature goes like this:
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 three decades, the creatures aren't about to give up the warmth of human companionship.
HARBINGER DOWN also stars Matt Winston, Camille Balsamo, and Giovonnie Samuels.
