Alec Gillis, the man who’s worked his practical FX wizardry on the Alien franchise, Starship Troopers, The Monster Squad, Tremors, Death Becomes Her, Cocoon, Jumanji and the upcoming Ender’S Game, is putting together his own project. Let me introduce you to Harbinger Down, a movie with Only practical animatronic and makeup effects, using Alien and John Carpenter’s The Thing as its inspiration. There also may be some stop-motion  in honor of the late, great Ray Harryhausen. That’s not all: genre fave Lance Henriksen is committed to star in Harbinger Down.

Amalgamated Dynamics will be creating the Creature Effects for the film, with co-founder Tom Woodruff Jr. acting as producer on the project. Below you will find the synopsis and some concept art for the film. If you want to support the making of this movie, check out its Kickstarter page, with goodies attached to any donations of $10 or more. »
