When we saw the teaser trailer for Tramp with a shotgun (Look at it HERE) the new film from director Jason Eisener Kids vs. Aliens back in September, RLJE Films was said to be giving the film a theatrical, VOD and digital release sometime in early 2023. Now we know exactly when that release will be: January 20ugh! Kids vs. Aliens it will then move to streaming service Shudder sometime later this year.
Written by Eisener and his Tramp with a shotgun partner John Davies, Kids vs. Aliens has the following summary:
All Gary wants to do is make awesome home movies with his best buds. All his older sister Samantha wants is to hang out with the cool kids. When their parents go out of town on Halloween weekend, an all-time frenzy at a teenage party turns into terror when aliens attack, forcing the siblings to band together to survive the night.
The film stars Dominic Mariche (Are you afraid of the DARK?), Calem MacDonald (The Umbrella Academy), and newcomers Phoebe Rex, Asher Grayson, Ben Tector, Emma Vickers and Isaiah Fortune.
Kids vs. Aliens Produced by Cinepocalypse Productions’ Josh Goldbloom, Bloody Disgusting’s Brad Miska, Shut Up & Color Pictures’ Marc Tetreault and Jason Levangie, and Yer Dead Productions’ Rob Cotterill. Tom Owen and Studio71’s Mark Ward, Adam Boorstin and Michael Schreiber are executive producers.
Eisener had this to say about the project:Bringing alien horrors to life is a literal dream come true. Kids vs. Aliens it is inspired by my childhood nightmares and obsessions. I hope my parents will forgive me for using their house as our main location.“
Eleven years have passed between the release of Hobo with a Shotgun and Kids vs. Aliens, because Eisener was busy with off-world projects. He contributed short film segments to the anthologies The ABCs of Death and V/H/S/2and also directed the series The Dark Side of the Ring. The short one he made V/H/S/2 it is quite similar to its set-up Kids vs. Aliens.
