Both feature-length instalments of the animated sci-fi horror, based on the popular video game. In 'Dead Space: Downfall' (2008), the crew of a mining operation in a distant part of the galaxy comes across a monolithic structure, evidence of extra-terrestrial life. When they subsequently remove the object with the intention of returning it to Earth, they soon realise they've made a fatal error. As the crew members begin to become infected by an unknown and highly aggressive enemy, a deadly fight for survival ensues between the alien invaders and the embattled humans. In 'Dead Space: Aftermath' (2011), it is the year 2509, and in the aftermath of the alien infection, Earth has lost touch with not only the deep-space mining ship, the USG Ishimura, but also the USG O'Bannon, sent to rescue them. With only four of the O'Bannon's crew remaining, each survivor's unique story is told, shedding light on the terrifying fate that befell the rest of the crew.
