"Haunting, eerie, and stylish- a hallucinatory collision of time travel, Nazi apocrypha, creatures from Beyond, and the Old West, obliterating the walls between genres to bring a fresh and sophisticated sensibility to the American Weird tradition"
Visionary author and psychic revolutionary
"Thomas Negovan's Aurora is eerily fascinating and genuinely gorgeous."
My Chemical Romance, Author of The Umbrella Academy
"It's as if Jodorowsky had directed an episode of The Twilight Zone."
"An unusual, bizarre movie; a mysterious film grimoire from a very special being."
Genesis Breyer P-Orridge

"I am very much looking forward to seeing a proper projection of Thomas Negovan’s first-ever short film, Aurora. Already in what he has generously shown me, I see Thomas’s commitment to a refined and focused aesthetic."
E. Elias Merhige
Director of Shadow of the Vampire, Begotten
"The hitherto undiscovered love child of H.G. Wells and Louis L'amour- this 'Weird Western' is much more than a genre mash-up; its a trip back to the original charnel house of creation out of which all our genres were born."
Creator of WGN's Salem
"The kind of beautifully strange and truly unique genre-crossing film that only comes along once in a decade. I'm thrilled to be helping make this movie happen."
Star of SyFy's Defiance and Dave McKean & Neil Gaiman's Mirrormask
"Very clever storytelling, and thoughtful cinematography. If you are a fan of the classic Universal Monsters or The Twilight Zone you absolutely have to see Thomas Negovan's Aurora."
Kevin J. O'Connor
Star of The Mummy, Van Helsing, Stephen King's 11.22.63, There WIll Be Blood, and Clive Barker's Lord of Illusions
"Aurora is a love letter to The Twilight Zone and Universal Monsters, and artfully combines actual historical events with Nazi UFO conspiracy theories, time travel, and extra-dimensional cryptids into a tidy and curious package, delivering science fantasy into the 19th century wild west."
"The costumes and creatures of AURORA were developed by some of the most celebrated artists of our day, including a Nazi time traveller designed by World Fantasy Award winning painter Brom, and creature design and practical eﬀects construction by Face Oﬀ (SyFy) winners Rayce Bird and J. Anthony Kosar."
"The film features Genesis P-Orridge (legendary music icon and originator of the Industrial music genre) as the voice of the creature. The soundtrack– available on limited edition vinyl as part of the Kickstarter campaign– was orchestrated by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for the soundtracks to the H. P. Lovecraft Society’s Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer in Darkness) with master thereminist Armen Ra and drummer Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls, NIN)."
"...the guys are delivering the short in black and white, and so far it looks aesthetically gorgeous, with some killer concept art of the creature and a unique spacesuit for The Fledermaus Pilot of the crashed UFO."
