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

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.

What will it cost? Only 8 minutes.
