ALIEN­ATE

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

re­leased OUT NOW! 2016 | 15 | DVD

Af­ter a strong open­ing scene, this low- key in­va­sion flick set­tles into a lan­guid pace. Set both be­fore and af­ter a global at­tack by a nasty bunch of laser- wield­ing ex­trater­res­tri­als, it’s more con­cerned with the re­la­tion­ship break­down that sep­a­rated David ( Blake Webb) and his wife than the mon­sters.

The di­rec­tion is solid, the act­ing good and the ef­fects se­quences spar­ingly de­ployed, but you can’t help but wish there’d just been one or two more aliens to liven things up.

Ex­tras A trailer. Will Salmon

No man, it’s in the other di­rec­tion!
