After teasing us for a better part of the year, the alien invasion spectacle from the Visual FX mavens Colin and Greg Strause is finally out in theaters, and we’ve got our official review and more locked and loaded.
Skyline looks and feels like a big summertime Hollywood movie with its storyline, giant-sized special effects and scenes of mass destruction, except – it isn’t. The film was self-financed with a 20-person crew and shot entirely at the Strauses’ tall apartment building overlooking downtown Los Angeles. And you can quote that bit of trivia to your friends!
After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.
Skyline stars Eric Falfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel, David Zayas, Neil Hopkins, and Crystal Reed. With Skyline, visual-effects masters Colin Strause and Greg Strause (THE BROTHERS STRAUSE) have directed, produced, and financed an independent film of epic proportions. Skyline was written by first-time screenwriters JOSHUA CORDES and LIAM O’DONNELL and produced by KRISTIAN JAMES ANDRESEN and LIAM O’DONNELL.
