Wednesday Wiki: Habitat

Habitat is today's Wikipedia article. Habitat was a 1997 sci-fi film written and directed by Rene Daalder. The environmental film mixed sci-fi genetic engineering and themes of angst and redemption.

The story follows Hank Symes, on the run from the government, and his obsession with saving the world. An accident in the desert turns Hank into an "ethereal life form" and he begins changing the house into an entity which threatens all who enter. Hank's son Andreas is a teenager struggling with teenager things. His dad tries to change things for his son and show him that miracles "still happen."

The movie artwork looks neat. I can't really wrap my mind around an accident turning a guy into a plant creature, but I can see how it could work. The film earned a Global Film Critics Award for Best Cinematography so it should at least be pretty right?
