Eleven years after Jason Eisener brought us Hobo with a Shotgun (watch it HERE), the director has finally made another feature film, Kids vs. Aliens – which is having its World premiere at Fantastic Fest today! Coinciding with the premiere, a teaser trailer for Kids vs. Aliens has arrived online and you can check it out in the embed above.
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.”
In the years since the release of Hobo with a Shotgun, Eisener has 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. I’ve been anxious to see another Eisener movie for over a decade now, so I’m very glad that the release of Kids vs. Aliens isn’t too far off.
