Home / Now Showing / KIDS VS. ALIENS
It’s been a minute since Jason Eisener exploded onto the genre scene with his brilliant tribute to exploitation cinema of yesteryear with ‘HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN’ and in the meantime re-invented the wrestling documentary with his groundbreaking DARK SIDE OF THE RING – but here is again, to remind everyone there’s no-one quite like him when it comes to mixing the ridiculous with the sublime with a good dose of ultra violence thrown in. The story follows Gary alongside his sister Samantha and their group of young friends as they find themselves in a showdown with not only against the school bullies but also an alien invasion. What follows is an action epic packed end to end with brilliant set pieces and the most foul mouthed group of children you’re ever likely to encounter. Buy a ticket and get on the ride for an extraordinary experience of madness and wonder.
