With a mixed critical reception Extraterrestrial is a science fiction romantic comedy directed and written by Nacho Vigalondo who made a name for himself with the 2007 film Timecrimes. The feature length film stars Michelle Jenner (Don't Be Afraid), Carlos Areces (The Last Circus), Julian Villigran, Raul Cimas, Miguel Noguera. The film chronicles a couple that uses the imminent threat of a massive alien invasion in Spain as a cover up for their illicit one night stand.
The film begins with Julio (Villigran), who wakes up to a strikingly beautiful woman lying beside him and a headache from a hangover acquired the night before. The woman turns out to be a happily married woman named Julia (Jenner) who wants nothing more than for Julio to leave. However, with a sudden and looming alien threat hanging over all of their heads, this option becomes increasingly untenable.
The tense situation is made even more so when Julia's husband returns home with quite a few unanswered questions on his mind. With the reappearance of Julia's husband, the alien menace appears to grow but yet Julio is certain that whatever happens he will be going nowhere but with the woman with whom he has instantly fallen in love.
Extraterrestrial is a 2012 science fiction movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.8 and a MetaScore of 55.
