Eleven years have passed since director Jason Eisener brought us Hobo with a Shotgun (watch it HERE), and while we have had other pieces of Eisener entertainment to watch since then – he contributed segments to the anthologies The ABCs of Death and V/H/S/2, and also directed the series The Dark Side of the Ring – we haven’t gotten another Eisener feature film. Until now. Eisener’s new film Kids vs. Aliens is set to premiere at Fantastic Fest later this month, and it has also secured distribution beyond that. Variety reports that RLJE Films will be giving Kids vs. Aliens a theatrical, VOD, and digital release sometime in early 2023. Then the movie will receive a streaming release through Shudder.

Written by Eisener and his Hobo with a Shotgun collaborator John Davies, Kids vs. Aliens centers on

Gary and his older sister Samantha as an all-time rager of a teen house party turns to terror when aliens attack, forcing the two warring siblings to band together to survive the night.

The film stars Dominic Mariche (Are You Afraid of the Dark?), Calem MacDonald (The Umbrella Academy), and newcomers Phoebe Rex, Asher Grayson, Ben Tector, Emma Vickers, and Isaiah Fortune.

Kids vs. Aliens is produced by Cinepocalypse Productions’ Josh Goldbloom, Bloody Disgusting’s Brad Miska, Shut Up & Colour Pictures’ Marc Tetreault and Jason Levangie, and Yer Dead Productions’ Rob Cotterill. Tom Owen and Studio71’s Mark Ward, Adam Boorstin, and Michael Schreiber serve as executive producers.

Eisener had this to say about the project:

Bringing alien terrors to life is a literal dream come true. Kids vs. Aliens is inspired by my childhood nightmares and obsessions. Hopefully my parents will forgive me for using their house as our main location.”

I’ve been waiting to see another Eisener movie ever since Hobo with a Shotgun, so I’m very glad that the wait is almost over. Are you looking forward to Kids vs. Aliens? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
