Extraterrestrial plans on giving teenagers yet another reason to stay out of the woods: crashed spaceships and the aliens who inhabit them. Unfortunately for the group of kids who have a closer encounter than they'd like, they inadvertently broke a long-standing pact of no agression between this alien race and Earth.
The film comes from horror filmmaking duo The Vicious Brothers, otherwise known as Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz, who co-wrote and co-directed Grave Encounters. With Extraterrestrial, Minihan directed solo, but did write with Ortiz.
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 lands Oct. 17 on VOD and Nov. 21 in theaters.
