Following the Fantastic Fest world premiere of the Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun, V/H/S/2, and Vice TV’s hit “Dark Side of the Ring” franchise) laters horror/sci-fi feature, Kids vs. Aliens, RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, and Shudder, unleashed the first official trailer for the film.
Helmed by Eisener, from a script he co-wrote with constant cohort John Davies (Hobo with a Shotgun), and based on their “Slumber Party Alien Abduction” segment of V/H/S/2, Kids vs. Aliens takes place at an all-time rager of a teen Halloween house party that turns all kinds of awry when aliens attack, forcing two warring siblings to band together to survive the night.
The film stars Dominic Mariche (“Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” “Team Zenko Go”), Phoebe Rex (“The Last Divide”), Calem MacDonald (“The Umbrella Academy”), Asher Grayson Percival (“Scaredy Cats”), and Ben Tector.
Brad Miska (V/H/S), Josh Goldbloom (V/H/S/99), Jason Levangie (Night Blooms), Marc Tetreault (“Moonshine”), and Rob Cotterill (Possessor) serve as producers on the film and Ward and Betsy Rodgers from RLJE Films negotiated the deal with Goldbloom and Miska on behalf of the filmmakers.
RLJE Films will release the film In Theaters, on Demand and Digital in early 2023 with a Shudder release to follow later in the year and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer to what is being dubbed a “nostalgic homage to timeless childhood ’80s classics, spiced up with foul-mouthed dialogue and gallons of gore.”
