Storyline

In 1982 a Russian physicist discovered something extraordinary was behind the strange radar anomalies he was recording. Something dark, which will eventually alter the path of mankind. Before he could tell anyone, he mysteriously vanished. Many years later budding physics student Dean Hollister and his discredited physics teacher have become obsessed with the same mystery. What had been a rare phenomenon is suddenly happening all over the world. The day it happens is a regular night shift for Dean at his mother's diner. Black rifts appear in the sky. Behind those rifts, something is moving. It's watching us. Written by Vantis Pictures

Pity about the middle
21 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I came across this short online so gave it a watch. It actually starts really well, fantastic titles, big orchestral music, and it seems to set up a promise of good things to come. Sadly this wasn't the case however. The middle is pretty bad I must say. Terrible acting, and I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be a comedy or serious sci-fi.

If this had been a 90 minute movie I would surely have switched it off it was so bad halfway through, but knowing it was only 25 minutes I held in there. The ending actually wasn't too bad and I was impressed with the last frames showing that monstrous apocalyptic scene. This could have been so much better than this I have to say and with the current state of CGI anything is possible in creating fantastic alternate Universes. Maybe next time things will be better for this movie company.
