First Trailer for Intriguing Extraterrestrial Sci-Fi Short 'From Beyond'
"Mesmerizing. You won't be able to shake it for days." Now what do we have here? What's hatching from that strange egg? There's a 60-second trailer for a new sci-fi short film premiering soon at the 2022 Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal this summer. From Beyond is an extraterrestrial short film made by Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik S. Hana, with a running time of 14 minutes. There's some kind of alien creature involved, but exactly what it is is still a mystery. Here's the synopsis: "A kaleidoscopic vision portraying mankind's first meeting with alien life, told through faux archival footage combined with practical FX, miniatures and old school in-camera trickery." Sounds good, I really want to see it. Already sold me with this brief glimpse. There's a great quote in this trailer describing it as "District 9 by the way of Ingmar Bergman." Well, okay. We'll keep an eye out for this, waiting for it to play online after it shows at festivals first. Get a peek below.
