Extraterrestrial is a science-fiction horror movie, released in 2014, directed by Colin Minihan. The film delves into the age-old concept of extraterrestrial life while presenting an eerie and eerie storyline that speaks to the genre of horror. The film's lead actor is Brittany Allen, who stars as April. She is joined by a talented cast, including Jesse Moss who plays Kyle and Freddie Stroma who plays the character of Seth.

The story begins with April and her friends traveling to an isolated cabin in the woods, with the intention of spending the weekend together celebrating their college friend's birthday. Things take a sinister turn when, in the middle of the night, they are suddenly woken by a loud noise outside. They soon notice strange lights illuminating the sky, and the atmosphere becomes tense when they realize that an unidentified flying object (UFO) has crash-landed in the woods near their cabin.

The group, understandably scared and confused, goes out to investigate the situation, only to find that something otherworldly and dangerous is lurking in the forest. They encounter a grotesque creature and hurry back to the cabin to find that they are not alone. The situation quickly spirals out of control, and as the night progresses, they are faced with horrific and inexplicable events that lead them to ask more questions than they can answer.

April and her friends soon realize that the alien invasion they thought they had seen in movies could be all too real. As the alien presence becomes more and more visceral, the survivors must figure out how to escape the woods alive. As they try to flee the alien, the group faces further danger from Kyle's erratic behavior. His actions lead to the group being captured by the extraterrestrial life form, forcing them to make one irreversible decision after another as they try to save themselves from their extraterrestrial captors.

Extraterrestrial is an undeniably tense and disturbing film that utilizes its horror genre to its fullest potential. The director immerses the audience in a world where nothing is what it seems, where the familiar and the unfamiliar are blurred, and paranoia reigns supreme. The characters' reactions to the alien presence are believable, and their interactions with one another reveal their fears, anxieties, and vulnerabilities. The film explores several thought-provoking themes, including themes of isolation, love, and the dangers of curiosity and human greed.

One of the most impressive aspects of Extraterrestrial is its cinematography. The way the film is shot highlights the grandeur and isolation of the woods, underscoring the film's paranoid and claustrophobic feel. The sound design and music also complement the tense atmosphere, adding to the film's overall sense of unease. The visual effects of the extraterrestrial creature are impressive, and though the creature is seen only briefly in the shadows, its eerie presence is felt throughout the film.

Overall, Extraterrestrial is an entertaining horror hybrid film that effectively interweaves sci-fi and horror themes to create an uneasy and unnerving experience for the viewers. The cast is strong, the direction is confident and the cinematography is exceptional. Extraterrestrial is a must-watch film for fans of the horror/sci-fi genre.

Extraterrestrial is a 2014 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 46 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0 and a MetaScore of 38.
