Neill Blomkamp has been consistently blowing our minds with his Oats Studios output, which has seen him step outside the system to unleash his visionary creativity to the fullest extent of the law. Recent shorts Rakka and Firebase showed what Blomkamp is capable of without any studio involvement, and he’s back this week with a new one.

Dakota Fanning stars in Zygote, a 20-minute sci-fi/horror short set in the Arctic Circle. The 98 person crew of a mining operation has been reduced to just two survivors… and they’re being pursued by a massive monster that is quite literally made up of the body parts of their fallen crew members.

Playing out like The Thing meets Aliens meets Brian Yuzna’s Society, Zygote is one of the coolest and craziest things you’ll see all year.

Check it out below. Best comment: “Amy Schumer was a perfect cast as the Zygote” HAHAHAHA!

If you’ve been loving Volume 1 of Blomkamp’s new shorts and want to see Volume 2, then support Oats Studios by purchasing the Zygote DLC through steam.
