Watch: The DNA-Bending Sci-Fi Short That’s Being Made Into a Feature Film

By  · Published on June 22nd, 2012

Why Watch? There are few things as creepy as British people talking about science, which is just one small reason why Matt Westrup’s The Gate is so damned chilling. It features some gruesome creature design and some solid CGI – especially for an independent outfit.

Plus, it’s based on reality. That’s right. Our own DNA is a mysterious, messed-up jungle of unused genes that are waiting to mutate and strike. Enjoy your weekend!

It was announced last week that Wayfare Entertainment would be financing a feature version, and after checking it out, it’s easy to see why.

What will it cost? Only 8 minutes.
