April and Kyle in the woods

Extraterrestrial struggles to break away from all sci-fi stereotypes

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong The Vicious Brother's Extraterrestrial is accomplished visually, yet struggles to etch its own identity that leads to a fairly exhausted sci-fi narrative.

Still reeling from her parents divorce, April (Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend (Freddie Stroma), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than they ever thought possible.

Lacking any sort of revolutionary narrative, Extraterrestrial is nothing more than your typical sci-fi horror flick. There are enough creepy and scary moments to make you feel uncomfortable in your seat, but climactically, Extraterrestrial is without any elaboration, mediocre. No doubting it will have its audience who'll appreciate the visuals and cliches, but conclusively, Extraterrestrial is fairly unavailing.
