Extraterrestrial (2014) Review:

Extraterrestrial was written by both members of The Vicious Brothers (known for Grave Encounters), but directed by only one of them: Colin Minihan.

Extraterrestrial is clearly placing itself as a tribute to UFO movies of the 80’s, and it is even pushing the concept quite far. It features all the clichés of the genre, and much more: the flying saucer, the typical Roswell shaped aliens, the halo of light for the abduction, etc. The movie is even exaggerating some of these concepts to the point where is sometimes turns into a parody of the genre. Despite that, the movie never turns into a comedy and conserves an odd but interesting serious approach.

Because of that, most of the movie’s story is very stereotyped, looking very much like a teen movie from the 80’s. That gets a little boring after some time, but luckily the last third of the movie takes us in an unexpected but delighting journey into the bizarre. This final is a blast. I loved it.

Extraterrestrial also features a great set of new generation actors and, as a welcome addition, the remarkable Michael Ironside (Scanners, Total Recall, Starship Troppers). The music and sound effects and also very good, with cool tune added during the funny moments, and some heavy horn blast to raise the intensity level during action scenes.

Overall, this tribute to old UFO flick is doing it right, and ends up being a little long, but really entertaining.
