Teaser Trailer For Alien: Harvest Posted! – Alien: 40th Anniversary Short Films

Hot on the heels of the teaser for Alien: Alone, the teaser trailer for the sixth and final Alien: 40th Anniversary short is now online on all the Alien Anthology social outlets!

The surviving crew of a damaged deep-space harvester have minutes to reach the emergency evacuation shuttle. A motion sensor is their only navigation tool leading them to safety while a creature in the shadows terrorizes the crew. However, the greatest threat might have been hiding in plain sight all along.

Directed by Benjamin Howdeshell, Alien: Harvest will be wrapping up the month and a half of Alien: 40th Anniversary Shorts that we’ve been enjoying. It will be releasing this Friday, on Alien Day, but we’re currently unsure if it will be dropping at the same time as Alien: Alone or sometime after.

Also, be sure to keep an eye out on the Perfect Organism Podcast as they will be releasing an interview with Benjamin on Alien Day!

    It was kinda strange though that xeno killed android character with its tail ('cause usually aliens don't do so with synths )
    Didn't that happen the very first time we ever saw an adult Alien and an Android in the same scene together?  ;)

    Well, that was the case with the queen but i always assumed she did so because she was f**king outraged in general and Bishop helped her enemies flew off. But in Harvest android actually helped alien to get people, so yeah still a bit strange.

    But outside of the logic it was pretty terrifying seeing alien's tail through her chest and her twitching as hell in convulsions. I think it served the creepiness of the ending pretty well.

    Hmm... I really surprised how much complains that short has got. It's ... confusing.   :-\

    Harvest is my favourite one. It was the only one that scared me to shit. That ending to me was creepy as f**k. That egg really terrified me. And that evil smiling android. I didn't expected that! Story made me believe that now everything is ok and safe and BAM! everybody is doomed. For 10 minutes short it was damn good.

    I mean seriously, smiling and having the "yes I am evil" facial expressions? that was a minus for me personally.

    Yeah righto...

    Yeah righto, because that doesn't say "I don't like evil smiling robots".  Somebody give this man some spectacles.  :P

    Pretty much what her face was like. It lets the short down a bit. Would have been better had she just had an apathetic expression.

    I don't like evil villains gloating in stupid "got'cha" moments that are pulled out of thin air.

    A shocking twist! A betrayal! And look -- look at that smile! The fiend!

    It was cheesy even for a short film.

    Exactly, its just too over the top and there is no need to pull such an expression, because honestly its not just smiling, its a competely psycho face.

    It all came out of "I don't like evil smiling robots" then excuses to discount the already existing evil smiling robots...  :-\

    No one even said that. And there is a difference between a smile and a full blown supervillain psycho face.  :P

    "Irrelevant"
    No. It can't, because David's a prototype.
    A one of a kind, Prometheus' own sequel establishes fairly concretely David's the outlier and the successive generation of Android's emotional "expression" is redacted.

    This is only reinforced by the portrayal of Walter, Ash, Bishop and Bishop again.
    + (Samuels, Davis, Marcus, Hanks)

    There's something human in them, but not maniacal evil intent.
  8. SM
    Fark - it's edit and repost tag.

    It's irrelevant because "robots can only smile evilly if they're prototypes" is asinine.

    And even if it were the case - the Harvest robot can be a prototype too.

    Harvest just gets better every time I see it.

    Having watched Harvest recently, I think the android thing lets it down ny being too over the top. I mean seriously, smiling and having the "yes I am evil" facial expressions? that was a minus for me personally. It would have been better if the synthetics face was expressionless, apathetic rather malevolent.

    Like this?

    No, that's more of a "i pooped in their donuts" face.

    Interestingly, the actress who plays Hannah is Jessica Clark, an actress who has had some major roles in mainstream media, namely as Lilith in season five and six of True Blood. I am not sure if there is any other known actors in these shorts, other than the woman who played Lorraine in Ore.

    The guy who played Nass in the first short has been in a few things, most obviously the first Inbetweeners film, and is starring in a new comedy series starting on British TV in the near future.

    Having just watched this again, I enjoyed it far more second time around.

    It's not especially nuanced or clever, but it is entertaining. As someone else said, at least one of these shorts had to go for the straightforward, Alien-stalks-people-and-kills them route. And I still got a good, macabre laugh out of the conclusion.

    Other than doubling down on the mad robots, it makes for a nice companion to Alone because it's the polar opposite in terms of style and tone.

    Anyone have any idea who the "Laurel Tooms" character is supposed to be? She's listed in the credits but I only see four in the film (plus the Alien).

    The other thing that let it down was the facehugger effects too,  it could have better done as a practical effect and it would not be too hard me thinks as you can get all sorts of alien merchandise online these days.

    Other than that it was one the ones that I enjoyed better and it was good to see more of the adult alien. The sets were great as well.

Makes me wonder how they got her, did use most of the budget to hire her or did she do it for same amount as the other actors?

    Anyone have a clue as to what Paul WS Anderson and Milla Jovovich did to warrant a "Special Thanks" in this? Other than, you know... completely inspire the style of the thing. This felt way more like one of Anderson's Resident Evil movies than it did Alien.

    The director actually worked on a couple Resident Evil films (Extinction and 1 other, I think) in the cutting room as some kind of asst.

    Looked great and had nice set and strobe light effects and that, but felt it never offered anything new. Basically we must escape why the alien hunts us scenario that has been done to death already. However I'm not knocking it since it was pretty well made for a low budget short so congratulations to the director.

    But I really want to see something fresh and new that not your typical cat and mouse scenario or the is a creature in the room with us. If Fox/Disney do more awsome shorts like this for Alien Day in the future, can we please get fresh ideas like Alien Alone or even Specimen were it has a slight twist at the end.

    Overall I have loved these shorts hope we get more in the future.
