I had a lot of fun with Unidentified when I saw it last year at the Downtown Independent. It has a strong comedic component that actually works. A lot of times indie horror takes itself so seriously that when attempts at humor are made, they seem utterly alien. Here that stuff actually lands. Maybe it helps that I’m one of those people who actually likes Vegas? Anyway, it arrives on Digital Download and DVD from MPI/Dark Sky Films tomorrow February 11, 2014 and I want to share the fun with you.
Directed by Jason R. Miller (co-producer and second-unit director of the hit horror films Hatchet 2 and Frozen), the film stars Parry Shen (the Hatchet franchise, Better Luck Tomorrow), Colton Dunn (Key and Peele), Eddie Mui (Call Back) and Eric Artell (Pair of Kings).
We’ve got an exclusive special feature from the film’s DVD for you, which features the guys getting some footage off of the first ever GoPro camera sent into space. You can also enter our contest to win a prize pack (pictured below)! It contains a DVD, an autographed menu from the diner scene, and a character collage. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me WHY you believe in aliens! Best response I get today wins! Be sure to include your US address!
