Get your Mother's Day-flavored sci-fi fix in this thrilling short in this fantastic Sci-Fi short film by the talented Patrick Kalyn!
Aliens have invaded our planet, and they're out to destroy our race. We've all seen this movie before. But in this gritty, surprisingly good sci-fi short, things are actually a little different from what we're used to. In Hybrids, the aliens are the result of a failed government experiment, botched bio-hybrid soldiers who have now turned against their creators.
In this 8-minute short by Patrick Kalyn, who's worked on the special effects of blockbusters like Avatar, King Kong and the indie sci-fi masterpiece District 9, these hybrids are hunting for children, whom they believe hold a mysterious "key." Among their victims there's the daughter of a former special forces soldier, played by Daniella Evangelista. Now, she's out for revenge.
In the wake of an alien infestation, an ex-special forces soldier"s daughter is killed in an alien attack. Seeking revenge, she leads a team deep into alien territory to a quarantined lab. Soon, she discovers the aliens aren"t alien at all, but a failed government experiment to create a bio-hybrid soldier. She must then expose the governments cover-up and save the last standing city in the quarantined zone from falling.
