‘The Mayflower’ Trailer: Things Get Gory In This Space-themed Horror Short

In The Mayflower, when a young engineer wakes up early from cryo-sleep on a deep space freighter called ‘Mayflower’, he is thrust into a claustrophobic nightmare.

Directed by Christopher Goodman, The Mayflower looks to take obvious influence from other extreme deep space films like Alien and Event Horizonfilms that didn’t shy away from being a horror film first. The film is written by Benjamin Ferry.

French readers take note, The Mayflower is scheduled to have its international premiere at the Paris International Fantastic Film Festival on December 9.

Take a gander at the gory first trailer!

    Not much of a trailer…looks promising, though.

    • Chris Webster

      You’re right. More of a teaser I suppose.

  • J Jett

    so will this be an actual movie or is it ultimately just a short?

    • Chris Webster

      It’s an 8 minute short that’s making the festival rounds but the creators have their eye towards a feature.

      • J Jett

        oh cool! thanx Chris! 🙂

  • Lil Malk

    There are so many movies with that exact hook, but by the Gods I will watch them all. I’m a sucker for space-horror.

  • Alanmac

    I’m definitely intrigued.

    Thats weird how people are still doing Alien.

    We all know that it was more layered and inspired that a blurb of its premise would suggest,
    but if you just described it in a blurb, “People aboard a spaceship being hunted by an antagonist”.

    But thats just never been done better then Alien, so it seems like you either copy Alien or your only aiming lower. The dichotomy of course being that any Alien knockoff is doomed to be less then Alien too, no matter how much money fox throws at another ishty Alien sequel.

    Its weird how difficult it is to make a significantly unique twist on that basic premise.
    I can see how alienS could be considered a significant twist, kind of being the template for sci-fi/horror shooter games, but other then that cultural impact I dont think its a very good movie.

    This trailer gave me nothing to latch on to.
