Neill Blomkamp (District 9) has completed a number of shorts as of late. Out of his new Vancouver based studio, Blomkamp has delivered: "The Escape," "Rakka," "Firebase," and now "Zygote." "Zygote" stars Jose Pablo Cantillo and Dakota Fanning. Characters are trying to survive on a remote base, with a deadly creature. The short film is visually stunning. And, everyone with a set of eyeballs should view it. The entire short, from Oats Studios, is hosted here.

The story involves an Arctic mine. Two survivors fight for their lives, while evading a "new kind of terror!"

Horror fans can see that terror, in the short below. It is made of several victims. Their eyeballs and arms have been amalgamated, in order to absorb even more survivors. Showing the continuing development of Computer Generated Imagery, the monster looks unusually life-like. Viewers should turn down the lights, while turning up the volume, to fully enjoy "Zygote." The full short is found below.
