Rancid Moon

"Real Moon. Real Terror."

Rancid Moon was a movie that was advertised as 'coming soon' on the USG Ishimura. Several posters could be seen advertising it in the first room of the Crew Deck in Chapter 10.


  • In the developer diary No.1 for Dead Space (2008), Glen Schofield says the original idea for Dead Space was a game, taking place in a space prison, called Rancid Moon.[1]
    • Note that Glen Schofield and several other developers of Dead Space are listed on the poster as a part of its production.
    • The 2022 game The Callisto Protocol, developed by the team at Striking Distance studios, which has Glen Schofield as its president, is a return to this original concept.
