I only recently watched director Nacho Vigalondo’s low-budget sci-fi mystery-thriller Timecrimes, and I really enjoyed it. It’s one of those movies where the twists and turns of the story are so intriguing (to me, anyway) that it doesn’t matter that the film barely has anything in the way of special effects. Anyway, Vigalondo has a new movie coming out with a similarly minimalist bent to it, about an alien invasion seen from within an apartment – the two protagonists being some dude and the woman with whom he had a one-night stand. I’ll let the trailer speak for itself, but I will just add this: it’s defintiely piqued my interest.
Extraterrestrial was just shown at TIFF, and will no doubt be getting a wider release in the coming months.
