‘Zygote’ Horror Short

Dakota Fanning and Jose Pablo Cantillo star in Zygote, a 22-minute horror film that has premiered for free on YouTube, Facebook and the Steam platform. You can also see it right here:

The film, from director Neill Blomkam (District 9, Elysium, Chappie), is part of Oats Studios’ “Volume 1 anthology,” which also includes two sci-fi shorts, Firebase and Rakka.

Zygote, like them, offers a pay option to Steam users. For $4.99, in addition to the film, you get “a wealth of specialty behind-the scenes content including dailies, an HQ stereo version, concept art, sound stems, 3D models, the musical score, and more.”

Oats Studios describes itself as an “experimental filmmaking lab,” with the goal of making feature films or TV series from the shorts it produces.
