3-Extraterrestrial

IFC Midnight is showing off the impressive effects work in The Vicious Brothers’ (Grave Encounters) upcoming sci-fi thriller Extraterrestrial (read our review), arriving on VOD October 17th and in theaters November 21st. We’ve added a handful of new images to go with the trailer that crash-landed earlier this week.

The film follows April (Brittany Allen), who is still reeling from her parents’ divorce when she’s dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend (Freddie Stroma), the group ventures out toward the crash site and discovers the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than anything they could ever imagine.

Extraterrestrial also stars Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption, House at the end of the Street), Jesse Moss (Final Destination 3, The Uninvited), Melanie Papalia (The Den, Smiley), Michael Ironside (Terminator Salvation, Starship Troopers), Emily Perkins (Ginger Snaps Trillogy), Sean Rogerson (Grave Encounters, 12 Rounds Reloaded) and Anja Savcic (I Love You Beth Cooper, Repeaters).

    in spite of the review i am cautiously optimistic that this film will offer something to like. that said i really do wish filmmakers would stop relying on the “grey” alien archetype: dark skies, vhs 2, without warning, etc. come on guys, think of something new and make it yours

    I’m a huge fan of well done horror aesthetics, which this seems to have. I’m sure the story will be stupid, but I’ll see it if not only just to look at it. I did like the first Grave Encounters.
