While we typically don’t venture outside the realm of Alien and Predator around here, we’re making a special exception as this is still in the family!
Our friends at StudioADI have provided us with a limited-edition signed Blu-Ray of Harbinger Down to give away to a lucky fan. Released in 2015 and directed by long time Alien Franchise practical effects artist Alec Gillis, Harbinger Down (titled Inanimate in the UK) is a Sci-Fi/Horror film in the vein of The Thing. The movie was crowd-funded and produced entirely in-house by StudioADI.
The film was heavy on creature practical effects, and also starred Lance Henriksen, well known to Alien fans for his roles in Aliens, Alien³, and Alien Vs. Predator.
This giveaway is in celebration of a recently released behind-the-scenes book of the film, written by Christopher Cooksy (aka Christopher Moonlight), and currently available on Amazon.
“Take a pictorial journey through the production of Harbinger Down, the film that set out to prove that audiences still prefer practical effects creatures over CGI. After finding their animatronic creations left on the cutting room floor one too many times in favor of digitally animated monsters and spurred on by the outcry of movie fans everywhere to keep it real, studioADI co-founders Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. decided to take matters into their own hands. The result was the #1 highest funded Kickstarter for a sci-fi/horror movie in history.”
To win the Blu-Ray, simply comment on this post and tell us your favorite Lance Henriksen role outside of the Alien and AVP franchises. The winner will be chosen at random. Apologies to our European and global members, but this giveaway is limited to US residents only.
The competition closes at on August 30th at 12pm Pacific Time.
Best of luck!
