“Bewitching. You won’t be able to shake it for days. Now what do we have here? What hatches from this strange egg? There’s a 60-second trailer for a new sci-fi short that will soon premiere at the 2022 Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal this summer. From beyond is a 14-minute extraterrestrial short film directed by Norwegian filmmaker Fredrik S. Hana. There is some sort of alien creature involved, but exactly What it is still a mystery. Here’s the synopsis: “A kaleidoscopic vision depicting humanity’s first encounter with extraterrestrial life, told through fake archival footage combined with practical effects, miniatures, and old-school behind-closed-doors trickery.” It looks good, I really want to see it. Already sold me with this brief overview. There’s a great quote in this trailer that describes her as “District 9 through Ingmar Bergman.” Well, okay. We’ll keep an eye on that, while we wait for it to be released online after it airs at festivals. Take a look below.
