An Astronaut Wakes Up In a Game of Survival In This Suspenseful Short Film

By  · Published on March 7th, 2014

Why Watch? We’ve all been there. You wake up in a snow-covered, Earth-like alien world with a loaded science gun and a limited amount of oxygen. It seems dire, but fortunately there’s someone hunting you.

Maybe it’s the Herrmannesque score or the near-constant heavy breathing, but this short from Marko Slavnic is a muscle tenser. It’s a snare drum exercise in atmospheric worry that doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but still adds a new tire to it.

What Will It Cost? About 8 minutes.

A New Short Film Every Weekday

Thanks to Ruth Atkinson for suggesting this one.
