Directed by effects wizard/master sculptor Hiroshi Katagiri who’s worked on movies like Pacific Rim, Looper & The Hunger Games comes this full on practical fx driven horror flick.
Also add Doug Jones into the mix as one of creepy creatures and you’ve can bet that you’re in for something special. The movie was successfully fund via Kickstarter and thus far this is all we’ve got in way of a plot synopsis:

I just checked out the long awaited trailer for a movie I’ve been pumped about for quite some time time now, Harbinger Down! If you follow my blog at all you’ve probably heard me complaining a lot about CGI and how there aren’t nearly enough movies these days that utilize rad practical monster effects like they used to back in the 1980’s. Well Alec Gillis at Studio ADI announced a while back that he planned on making a full on monster movie utilizing all practical effects only using CG to eliminate things like rods or wires.
You see a while back they made a prequel to the classic John Carpenter Monster flick “The Thing” and Gillis and his crew were hired to do the special effects, they were told to use all practical monster effects to keep the same vibe as the 1982 classic. They went hard to work and filmed much of the movie with the effects but at the last minute the studio changed their mind, and CG’d over all of there work, claiming that people these days like their movies to look more like modern video games. The movie was bashed by fans of the original and did little at the box office. So here is Alec Gillis’ response to what happened to them, a movie that bears some resemblance to the premise of The Thing, as if him and his crew is giving the fans the movie that they were hoping for in The Thing prequel. So take a look at the trailer, this one is on the top of my list!!

I stumbled upon this movie preview while searching for the trailer for a movie called “Primal” which will be showing soon at the H.P. Lovecraft film festival here in Portland Oregon in October. What I ended up finding was a movie by the same name that looks even better than the one being shown at the festival! Now it seems also that any movie now day that’s got a guy in a furry suit will have to star Lance Henrickson (Abominable, Sasquatch, Sasquatch Mountain)-what gives Lance? Why you so damn obsessed with Bigfoot and Chaka?
Apparently the movie is now going by the name “The Lost Tribe” and will be released October 19th. From the looks of it it seems that Chaka from Land of the Lost just got seriously pissed off check this out!
