Extraterrestrial is a 2014 Sci-Fi horror film centered around four college kids who, while at a remote cabin, find themselves fighting for their lives against a group of stranded aliens.
I’ll start by saying that I am all for most alien-based horror movies, but somehow this one misses the mark. The characters are pretty much your stereotypical, run-of-the-mill party kids. The story line is nothing new – a UFO crash-lands in their back yard party, and shortly after are under attack from the aliens. The aliens in this movie are pretty standard “grey man” aliens,but rendered in some pretty questionable CGI. I feel like the writers really went for a shocking ending but it was pretty predictable and really lacks the impact they were looking for.
While I won’t recommend this movie, go ahead and give it a watch if you are into alien movies, don’t mind a pretty low budget, and want to check out some pretty decent kills.
