Space – the final frontier… for terror.
Yes over the years we’ve had many horrific trips to space: Alien, Event Horizon, Gravity, but this latest trailer for Austrralian movie Infini, thanks to io9, is really evoking that classic sense of terror which later movies eschewed in favour of big CGI effects.
This looks great, it’s tense, claustrophobic and what’s more has such a classic feel to it as everything is practical, so you’re really thrust into this world as the environment in which it takes place actually exists and wasn’t added later by a computer.
Here’s the synopsis:
Set in the dark reaches of space, Infini is the story of a search and rescue team transported to a distant mining station to save Whit Charmicael (Daniel MacPherson) who is the lone survivor of a freak accident. Using Slipstream technology the team must transport into a hostile environment and quarantine a lethal biological weapon which is set to arrive on Earth within the hour.
Infini arrives in cinemas next year.
