Prometheus Viral Transmission

Twentieth Century Fox has released a very disturbing audio recording from Prometheus, Ridley Scott‘s triumphant return to the science-fiction genre. The scrambled audio transmission, which surfaced on the Swiss movie site BlogBusters, is the latest installment of Fox’s ‘Discovering Prometheus’ viral campaign.

Thanks to the forum members over at Prometheus-Movie.com, you can download and listen to the original transmission here.

The audio (which runs just over one minute in length) is scrambled and reversed, making it rather hard to decipher. Luckily, as The Dark Knight Rises viral campaign proved, there isn’t a marketing puzzle that can’t be solved by rabid fanatics, especially if the riddle promises secret goodies!

Devout Alien fans and Prometheus blog-stalkers dissected the transmission immediately and performed an audio autopsy, correcting the reversed audio. If you’ve seen the recent international trailer, you’ll be able to guess what scene this audio comes from.

Listening to the audio alone is very unsettling. It’s reminiscent of Ripley hearing Lambert’s screams in Alien, leaving your mind to imagine the horrors she endured at the six-fingered hands of the Xenomorph.

“It’s getting tighter – it’s breaking my arm!” can be heard as something writhes and thrashes about. There’s an otherworldly hiss followed by a horrible scream. There are choked pleas to “cut it off!” and then a muffled shout, “It’s in my throat” before the audio transmission cuts out.

If you haven’t had your fill of potentially spoilerish Prometheus featurettes and viral marketing materials, you can listen to the reversed (solved) version in the video here below.

Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron, Prometheus opens June 8th.
