Marooned is a science fiction short following the crew of a derelict spacecraft, lost in space, and drifting into madness. Just when things couldn’t get any worse, an unwelcome visitor arrives.
A space ship bereft of power, floundering on the last of its life support, floats mercilessly through the silent emptiness. A two-man mining crew trapped aboard struggles for its last few breaths before taking a plunge into insanity. The ship's captain begins to see things and hear noises.
When the Lieutenant climbs the exterior of the ship to repair a failing communications antenna, the captain encounters a hideous creature determined to break the airlock and get into the ship.
Marooned is a Science Fiction short film that has classic thrills inspired by movies such as Alien, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and the Twilight Zone.
