quietearth [Celluloid 05.08.12] scifi horror fantasy



Ivan Engler, the man behind the excellent Swiss sci-fi Cargo, made a scifi/horror short back in 2000, and we're proud to present the remastered re-release in its entirety exclusively here on QE! Future tech, The Church, and evil at 22 minutes in length. Watch it below!

On a dark and stormy night, a genial computer specialist is called to a remote monastery to shut down an old computer system. Of course, if it were that easy, it wouldn't be any fun to watch. As it turns out, this isn't just the method the devout monks use to download Enya MP3s and nun porn. The computer serves a higher purpose and the secret it protects also protects mankind from an evil as old as time. Don't miss this chilling tale that sends a potent message about our growing reliance on technology.

I haven't watched the whole short yet, but the trailer makes it look like a horror adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's The Nine Billion Names of God.

After watching the whole short I see it as a mashup of Clarke's Nine Billion Names of God and Carpenter's Prince of Darkness.

@charles: hell yeah, why not, actually YES!
carpenter's "princes of darkness" definitely influenced me as did the short story by arthur c. clarke.
