Watched the 2014 sci - fi horror Extraterrestrial last night and it was OK - ish featuring a cast of mostly unknowns (except for Michael Ironside and Ginger Snaps Emily perkins) performing more than adequately enough and some rather nifty special effects though there was still one instance of pretty crummy CGI in an outrageous Alien probe scene towards the end.
It was written & directed by the Vicious Brothers of who I have never heard off before and they did at times here show quite a bit of talent though I must say that i do not think that all aspects of the film were handled as well as they could have been,for starters some of the characters here (especially the main group of teens) acted so irrational and stupid at times that it started to grate a bit and that by the end of the movie I was getting that fed up with there continuosly daft actions that I had long been wishing for it to be over!
Overall though it was not too bad and I'd say at least worth a rental though to be honest I can't see myself rushing back to watch it again any day soon!

Totally loved this one: fantastic atmosphere, cool cast and characters with a nice plot.
Check out the documentary if you have the dvd/blu-ray with extras. Neil Marshall and co. know how to make a low-budget film look good. Highly recommended!
