Unearthed (2010)

Unearthed is a short film available in the usual corners of the internet.
You can see the twist coming a mile off but its still very nicely done and worth twenty minutes of your time
Are these the suits used in Plymouth?  I think the answer is probably yes with a little modification here and there.
 
Cheers again Michel

    1. Cheers Michel. Raumpatrouille Orion has been safely logged into the files awaiting its turn. I think you linked me some of these images before as examples of very large space helmets. I shall get round to it soon, I promise

    2. I can definitely recommend Raumpatrouille, used to watch it on satellite in German years ago, and I do mean years ago. Funky series, with hot chicks in wigs, I think the costume designers at UFO might've been watching. My German's non existent, so we relied on a running translation, which she sometimes forgot to actually translate and it would come out in German, still highly entertaining though.

    3. I watched a chunk of it on Youtube after commenting and it does look very good. I also thought it might have inspired the boys over at UFO a little.
