This week is filled with a bunch of Z-grade releases that, quite frankly, you probably aren’t interested in. The highlight of the week is Exit Humanity, which is like the live action movie version of the Undead Nightmare expansion pack for Red Dead Redemption. Nothing else caught my eye as worthy this week, but Father’s Day from Troma should be out next Tuesday – that is if it isn’t pushed back again. Let me know what you plan on picking up and have a great week.
THE AWAKENED (2012) – FilmWorks Entertainment

As the inhabitants of the farm take refuge in the secluded farm house, a group of mysterious covert government agents callously monitors the situation. Why have the Aliens traveled to Earth? Are the Government Agents hiding something?
