Creature Feature SPUTNIK Brings Space Parasite to Earth [Trailer]

By Marina Antunes [07.24.20]

It's dark, creepy, Russian and now one of my most anticipated titles of the year. Meet Sputnik.

Written and directed by Egor Abramenko and expanded from the director's 2017 short film The Passenger, Sputnik stars Pyotr Fyodorov as Konstantin, the lone survivor of a spaceship incident. Oksana Akinshina is Tatyana, a doctor who has been brought in to observe the astronaut but what she doesn't initially know that becomes clear later is that Konstantin didn't come back alone and the government wants her to separate the parasite from the man. As expected, things go badly.

I couldn't not think of The Thing while watching the trailer for Sputnik but man if the trailer isn't great: sleek, dark, moody and haunting, featuring glimpses of a monster that is likely to haunt our nightmares for a while.

Sputnik opens theatrically and will be available on VOD August 14.

Recommended Release: The Thing
