The alien horror flick Extraterrestrial is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.

This latest offering from the filmmaking duo known as The Vicious Brothers features some overt nods to Fire in the Sky (which is AWESOME!) Kudos to the Vicious Brothers for that.

And, in addition to the horror movie stereotype of terrible things happening to kids at a cabin in the woods, this movie also features the stereotypical crazy UFO guy. He’s played by the badass Michael Ironside, and this character knows all about the government’s secret treaty with extraterrestrials.

Rogue Planet saw clips from this film at the 2014 New York Comic Con. The visuals are great, and it makes for a fun alien flick, stereotypes and all.

Here’s the movie’s synopsis:


From The Vicious Brothers, the creators of Grave Encounters, comes a pulse-pounding encounter of the deadly kind.

Still reeling from her parents’ divorce, April (Brittany Allen, Dead Before Dawn) is dragged by her boyfriend (Freddie Stroma, Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince, Pitch Perfect), and a group of his friends back to the cabin where she spent summers as a child. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. The group venture out to the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet, along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. They soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than anything they could ever imagine.

Also starring Jesse Moss (Ginger Snaps), Emily Perkins (Ginger Snaps, Juno), Gil Bellows (House at the End of the Street) and Michael Ironside (X-Men: First Class, Terminator Salvation), Extraterrestrial’s mind-blowing premise is delivered with “retro shocks that straddle the worlds of Steven Spielberg and George Romero [and] nods to the conspiracy business of The X-Files” (Empire Magazine)!
