That of making a “claustrophobic full-length creature film that will feature only practical Animatronic and Makeup Effects.” Fango and a great many peers responded with enthusiasm to the Lance Henriksen-starring film and fortunately, the team surpassed their goal. Months later, the first official look at HARBINGER DOWN is here.
