As Dr Peter
Venkman might almost say, the trouble with aliens is that you just can’t trust them. The ones who regularly visit William Cassidy ( Julian Richings) aren’t nipping round for a cuppa. Oh no, they’re the abducting and probing sort. If that wasn’t bad enough, their experiments have made William a target for the military.
This Canadian film is a bricolage of different directorial styles. It has moments of found- footage horror, first- person- shooter action and some intense, 24- style grilling scenes. It’s in the latter that Ejecta falls down. All the actors are capable enough, but William spends too much time in chains.
Still, the aliens are convincingly creepy and the script, by Pontypool screenwriter Tony Burgess, finds a few fresh angles on the familiar abduction storyline.
