Check Out This Amazing 8-Bit Cinema Take on Neill Blomkamp’s ‘District 9’

Six years after his stunning directorial debut blew our minds (and snagged a Best Picture nod), Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 has received the ever-popular 8-bit treatment.

I don’t think it would be much of an exaggeration to call Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 one of the best sci-fi movies of the past decade (everything he’s done after that…not so much). Between the incredible visual FX that Blomkamp achieved on a minimal budget and the original, at times soul-crushing story that the film told, District 9 stood out as a rare example of hard sci-fi with actual heart.

But there’s really only one question to ask when exploring a visually masterfully, emotionally resonant film about prawn-like aliens stranded in South Africa: “What would it look like in 8-bit?” Thankfully, our buddies at Cineflix have answered that call with this 8-bit remake of D9 that harkens back to the days of Game Boy.

Cat food power-ups need to become a thing in more video games.
