Storyline

In a remote mining facility located somewhere in the Arctic circle, a monster kills 96 of the 98 people there. The 2 remaining survivors try to hide from it, but with food and water running low, they decide to escape to a safe zone as it contains an abundance of supplies. As soon as they leave, however, they are instantly pursued by the monster through large rooms and narrow corridors with only a couple of guns to defend themselves with. Written by Brian Berta

Should be a feature film
20 August 2020 | by peamorrortuSee all my reviews

Short runtime brings about some plot contrivances, but, overall, this short is pretty good: the story is interesting and compelling, worth expanding, and I would love to see the two main characters more developed. The monster is just awesome: really well done and disgusting, as a monster should be. Hope Oats Studio makes features films some day.
