Two years ago, after a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Verizon’s go90 and Stage 13 launched the original scripted horror-comedy series “Snatchers”, which Fred Topel reviewed and exclaimed, “…would make Sam Raimi proud.“
While new episodes were released weekly back in 2017, the full feature film is now getting a premiere at this March’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.
“Snatchers” is centered on a status-obsessed teen who, after having sex for the first time, finds herself pregnant…with an alien.
Written by Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman, and Scott Yacyshyn, and directed by Cedars and Kleiman, the film was inspired by watching their older sisters navigate the horrors of adolescence. Focusing the story on two teenage girls, Cedars and Kleiman unleash their horror/comedy skills to “create a funny, thrilling, and bloody ride through the high school experience.”
Here’s the brand new trailer.
