Ridley Scott’s hotly anticipated Alien-prequel/Prometheus-sequel is mere days away; but even though US residents can’t see Alien: Covenant until Friday, Alien uber-fan and filmmaker Zev Deans has already produced a short based on the film: Alien Covenant: Biotic. It seems to portray a group of chosen hosts who seem to regard birthing xenomorphs as something of a religious rite. After consuming a familiar looking black goo, these volunteers(?) meditate until they are literally torn asunder. There’s an implication that these experiments are being conducted by Weyland-Yutani, most likely for the purposes of creating a bioweapon. Have a look.
Official Synopsis: Video artist Zev Deans made a horrifying, original short film inspired by Alien that will absolutely blow your mind. See Alien: Covenant in theaters 5/19.
