Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios Drops First Short Film Volume 1. RAKKA

Splashamians, are you ready to have your socks blown off? Neill Blomkamp promised us short films coming to Steam, and this first taste with Rakka is enough to hook the masses. Starring Sigourney Weaver, this tale of alien invasion is not like District 9 which I think most of us were slightly apprehensive about. Don’t get me wrong, I was still eagerly awaiting whatever he decided to bestow upon us. And, he does not disappoint here.

Watch Rakka, and we’ll talk in about 22 minutes:

My goodness that was fun!

So, the whole sentiment behind these short films is whether or not we want to see more, right? If that is the case, let me be the 300,000th person to say “Take my money Neill!” That could be quite the tale. My only slight gripe is the whispering narrator in Part 1. Was she the woman who got blown up? That plan went to $#!+ quick didn’t it? And, then KAPOOYAW. Also, where do the angel aliens come into play? Always leave them wanting more, right Neill?

And, did anyone else expect this thing to be slightly low-budget? This short film puts Syfy channel shows to shame. Beautiful space shots of earth, in the not so distant future, and we didn’t get skimped on the gore. I like the idea of Steam bringing us more content like this. What a time to be alive.

Fire off in the comments and let us know if you want more Oats Studios films.
