@calcium_waste probes this alien abduction film...
The dark storylines of The Vicious Brothers, known for their cult favorites Grave Encounters 1 & 2, have returned in an entirely new way for their newest film, Extraterrestrial. Given the title alone, we know exactly where this film is headed, and it wastes no time getting there. The film begins with an alien abduction, setting the tone and making it seem as though this will be nothing short of formulaic. Thankfully, it throws “formulaic” out the window.
Extraterrestrial is a disturbingly surreal trip through extraterrestrial life and its implications, yet always maintains a darkly enjoyable tone of satire and humor. It is an incredibly fun and cringe-worthy experience, and much of its success relies on Drew Goddard’s The Cabin In The Woods, considering its recent reintroduction to satirical horror. To be blunt, Extraterrestrial is basically what happens when you throw Cabin in the Woods and Signs into a blender, but that doesn’t make it any less of a lucid and cerebral experience.
