Watch Neill Blomkamp’s INSANE New Sci-fi/Horror Short ‘Firebase’

This is what unbridled creativity looks like, friends.

We’re not sure there’s any filmmaker who’s more exciting to watch right now than Neill Blomkamp, whose new Oats Studios venture has allowed him to step outside the studio system and crank his own creativity up to eleven. When a visionary artist like Blomkamp is fully unleashed and unrestrained, oh boy is it something special.

Following the Sigourney Weaver-starring Rakka is Blomkamp’s brand new Oats Studios short Firebase, which brings literal Hell into the Vietnam War. Bending the fabric of space-time, the insanely ambitious short introduces a whole new war enemy in the form of the River God, a hellish beast who has the power to raise the dead.

Set during the Vietnam war, FIREBASE follows American soldier Hines through an ever deepening web of science fiction madness.

Watch. This. Film. Immediately.

Steve Boyle, Nic Rhind, Robert Hobbs and Tyler Johnston star in the short.

Help fuel more Blomkamp insanity by showing your support through the official Oats Studios website or alternatively purchase the Firebase DLC through steam.

    Eh. The effects were pretty cool, didn’t hold my interest as much as the last short.

      But did you “Watch. This. Film. Immediately.”?

  • KnightDrive

    I don’t like these shorts, at all. They are beautiful to look at, that CG work is incredible, but as always the script and the dialogue are terrible and cringey as hell. My 13 year old self would’ve love this…

    Actual line of dialogue from short : “He had a wife, he had children, he was pushed by grief to the point where the very fabric (space time fabric) tore around him” LOL WUT.

    Interesting story…. I didnt love it as much as Rakka. I’ll give it to Neil and crew, they are truly talented.

  • Corey J Adkison

    That was pretty damn cool.

  • pacman68

    The acting is terrible.

  • Honest

    It’s not bad, but so far Oats seems like a rated R Outer Limits that doesn’t lean as heavily on a twist ending.

  • RawBeard

    Preferred this one over Rakka but both were cool little shorts

  • MarsupialRebellion

    That was pretty awesome in my opinion. Always thought the Vietnam War would be a cool backdrop for a cool horror story

  • Alexander Dinamarca

    I was loving this up until the end, wished Blokamp would have kept it a straight horror romp and refrained from indulging in his fascination with sci-fi guns.
