UPDATE: Half-Life (Unofficial) Movie: Beyond Black Mesa

[UPDATE 2: I added a short review of the film. You can find it after the jump.]

Just a few hours ago, I wrote about the impending release of "Beyond Black Mesa," a short fan film.

Beyond Black Mesa is a fan film inspired by the Half-Life series, a collection of first-person shooter games for the PC.

Just in case you're not a gamer, here's an eye-opener on what Half-Life is:

The 11-minute fan film after the jump.

Well, it's incredibly short, the Headcrab Zombies aren't Headcrab Zombies but hey, with a limited budget and a skeleton crew, they did exceptionally well; the pacing, the mise en scène, the music, the sound effects --- they all come together as a cohesive whole, creating a fan film worthy of the Half-Life label. So long as you don't expect District 9 quality from an 11-minute film made on a limited budget, Beyond Black Mesa will stun you.
