Arctic terror by director Neill Blomkamp!

Stranded in an Arctic mine, two lone survivors are forced to fight for their lives, evading and hiding from a new kind of terror.

If you enjoy horror movies, especially sci-fi horrors, this short is great. It's honestly one of the best I've seen. Like another reviewer said, I'd like to see it made into a full-length film - I understand that it probably wouldn't add a whole lot that's new to the genre, but I think I'd still be able to enjoy it. It has a unique approach to how the creature comes about, and the creature is definitely unique looking, some aspects maybe being loosely pulled from "The Thing", and definitely creepy, and the graphics for it are well done. After watching it, I did find myself wanting to learn more, and see the end results, and I think that with a short film, that's what you want your audience to feel. I didn't even recognize Dakota Fanning until I looked at IMDb to read reviews and saw she was in it (though that was a definite 'duh' moment). She does a great job alongside Jose Pablo Cantillo, so it's good to see she didn't fall down the same rabbit hole so many child stars do - either falling apart and getting into drugs, or disappearing from film altogether.

Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp
Stars: Dakota Fanning, Jose Pablo Cantillo
