Some loose on the spot thoughts. I’m thinking about an old school universal horror inspired film. The looks of the original frankenstein films with the assymetrical buildings, spooky dead trees and cool camera angles, lightning, thunderstorm, heavy rain and sometimes moments of quiet with a minimalistic creepy soundtrack
A lone predator cruises through space looking for the ultimate trophy, finds a sinister looking planet. It is a ruin of an old civilization, big mysterious elephant headed monstrosities lay scattered across the ship. The pred investigates, The place is dead but for a lone alien stalking the predator, a game of cat and mouse begins all around the ruins of,what seemed to be a laboratory ( very old school with tubes and bottles and odd brews, mad scientist styled lab. The predator wins after a long and fierce fight, leaves the building when he comes eye to eye with a queen. Meanwhile a storm is raging on the planet with howling spooky winds, weirdly and off shaped rocks and trees and a mist are the new surroundings.there is thunder and lightning. Pred needs his entire arsenal of weapons to hurt the queen but is clearly on the losing side. Hurt and wounded he heads back to his ship, not to run away but to lure the queen into a trap using a hologram to try outsmart the queen
The ships enteriors are equally odd like in predator 2. The pred in the meantime heals himself in the medical bay. In awe of his adversay he ditches all his weapons but his wristblade and fight the queen beast to beast. The queen wins but a distress signal is bleeping in the ship, soon a new warrior will arrive to take on the queen…
No humans, no dialogue, no story. Just sounds, creepy soundtrack, suspense and odd camera angles. I’m gunning for atmosphere over story here, short film padded out for about 75 min. Keep everything mysterious.
