The Fisherman

2015 | Horror | Short Film


JAWS meets ALIEN in Hong Kong waters

Mr Wong is a third generation fisherman in Hong Kong, struggling to keep this tradition alive. One night, he decides to leave the crowded waters of the harbor, and fish in calmer waters. His luck changes when he catches something that does not belong to this world.

Sitting at just 19 minutes including the credits I would recommend this to any fan of sci-fi or horror and hope it's creators go on to big things maybe even a full feature length version of this due to its ending.

Directed by Alejandro Suárez Lozano
Starring Andrew Ng, Ng Kam Cheun, Patrick Yip, Fung Tak Che.
