It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another Alien: 40th Anniversary Short! Up this week is Alien: Specimen which was directed by Kelsey Taylor and written by Federico Fracchia, and starring Jolene Anderson as Julie. Check out the synopsis and video below!
To celebrate Alien’s 40th anniversary and in partnership with Tongal, 20th Century Fox is releasing new Alien-universe fan-made short films leading up to Alien Day on April 26th. Directed by Kelsey Taylor, the synopsis for “Specimen” reads: “It’s the night shift in a colony greenhouse, and Julie, a botanist, does her best to contain suspicious soil samples that have triggered her sensitive lab dog. Despite her best efforts the lab unexpectedly goes into full shutdown and she is trapped inside. Little does she know, an alien specimen has escaped the mysterious cargo, and a game of cat and mouse ensues as the creature searches for a host.”
Up next week is Alien: Nightshift, written and directed by Aidan Brezonick. If you haven’t already listened, we recently posted our review episode of all the Anniversary Shorts which you can check out here!
