I think it’s apparent at this point that aliens are the new zombies. By that I mean we are to be inundated with movies about alien invasions to the point we will all be sick of the genre within 2-3 years. Add the indie sci-fi horror The Awakened to the pile of evil extraterrestrial flicks in the pipeline.
I probably shouldn’t say “in the pipeline” considering this alien terror flick from co-writer/directors Adrian DeLude and Eric Nichols and starring Robert Picardo of “Star Trek: Voyager” fame reportedly had its world premiere at LA’s Shriekfest this past October.
A retired farmer living on the outskirts of a small mountain community pulls down an old tree unearthing something large and metallic. The first ray of sunlight awakens the occupants of this UFO, buried for over 200 years. As you can imagine, the awakened aliens are none too pleased.
The ever vigilant Avery Guerra sent over word of The Awakened, including a trailer that actually makes me want to see this one. Looks a bit like Night of the Living Dead with aliens that for some reason give me a Pandorum vibe. Definitely interested in seeing this one. Give the trailer a chance.
