We’ve discussed Harbinger Down more than once here on ModernHorrors.com, but now we have a brand new look at the film to share with all of you. In case you’re unfamiliar, the film stars genre icon Lance Henriksen and is directed by Alec Gillis (the man responsible for the practical effects found in Aliens, Starship Troopers, Death Becomes Her, Etc). So expect some pretty gnarly effects.

The film is set to release this Friday – August 7th, 2015. Expect the full review to post here tomorrow, and see if it gains the Modern Horrors stamp of approval. Until then, feast your eyes upon this brand new trailer:

A group of grad students have booked passage on the fishing trawler Harbinger to study the effects of global warming on a pod of Orcas in the Bering Sea. When the ship’s crew dredges up a recently thawed piece of old Soviet space wreckage, things get downright deadly. It seems that the Russians experimented with tardigrades, tiny resilient animals able to withstand the extremes of space radiation. The creatures survived, but not without mutation. Now the crew is exposed to aggressively mutating organisms. And after being locked in ice for three decades, the creatures aren’t about to give up the warmth of human companionship.
