As the poet Yeats asked: “And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?”
Well, folks, it’s a giant jellyfish. It may not be slouching towards Bethlehem, but it is heading towards a TV station or online site near you….
Remember the giant jellyfish flick the Backbrain profiled back in August 2012, when we interviewed the director? No, well, go here to jog your memory. There’s lots of squishy information.
At any rate it’s called Hellyfish and is directed by Patrick Longstreth and Robert McLean.
Now there’s a poster (above) and a new official trailer:
America’s only missing nuclear weapon is leaking radioactive material into the ocean just off the coast of Tybee Island, GA. The trifling existence of a hapless cast is disrupted by a vicious force of nature that shows no mercy.
It will be a short film [13 minutes] — and will slouchingly reach its destination on Halloween 2014. First off though, it will be screening at the DC Shorts Film Festival on Friday, September 11th at 7pm. I’m rather keen to see it myself, though getting to Washington from Wollongong, Australia, that evening might be a bit impractical.
