V/H/S Producers Are Backing Sci-Fi Horror KIDS VS ALIENS

From the producers of the V/H/S franchise comes a sci-fi horror that follows what happens when aliens attack a house party, titled Kids VS Aliens. It joins a long and unrelated line of "X Versus Aliens" films and series, including Monsters Vs Aliens, Alien V Predator, Wizards Vs Aliens, Cowboys Vs Aliens (so we tweaked that last one, but you get the idea). It's about time we let the kids have a go.

V/H/S/2 director Jason Eisener is helming the project, on which principal photography has recently wrapped. He also reunites with the creative team behind the 2011 grindhouse-inspired cult horror Hobo with a Shotgun, co-writing the script with John Davies. Dominic Mariche (Are You Afraid Of the Dark?), Calem MacDonald (The Umbrella Academy), Phoebe Rex, Ben Tector, Isaiah Fortune, Asher Grayson, and Emma Vickers star.

“Bringing alien terrors to life is a literal dream come true,” said Eisener. “‘Kids vs Aliens’ is inspired by my childhood nightmares and obsessions. Hopefully my parents will forgive me for using their house as our main location.” The Lighthouse and Possessor creative Rob Cotterill is also producing for Yer Dead Productions, with Josh Goldbloom of Cinepocalypse Productions and Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting.
