We at COMET love an old fashioned creature feature, and it looks like they’ve got a good one brewing over at indie science-fiction studio DUST.
While the words “creature feature” may conjure images of B movies and the like, that’s not what we’re talking about here. The new film is called Sea Fever, and it looks like a legitimately great horror film, creature feature or not. The film is about a fishing boat whose crew falls victim to a strange creature that somehow gets onboard, a creature that has the ability to infect them with… something. Think The Thing meets Jaws and you should have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Check out the trailer and synopsis below, courtesy of Collider.
Siobhán’s a marine biology student who prefers spending her days alone in a lab. She has to endure a week on a ragged fishing trawler, where she’s miserably at odds with the close-knit crew. But out in the deep Atlantic, an unfathomable life form ensnares the boat. When members of the crew succumb to a strange infection, Siobhán must overcome her alienation and anxiety to win the crew’s trust, before everyone is lost.
Sea Fever will begin infecting theaters on April 7… assuming that the actual pandemic of the coronavirus doesn’t result in the movie’s delay before that.
