RLJE Films and Shudder have teamed up for the anticipated horror/sci-fi film, KIDS VS. ALIENS which will make its world premiere at Fantastic Fest later this month.
Directed by Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun, V/H/S/2, and Vice TV’s hit Dark Side of the Ring franchise), who co-wrote the film with John Davies (Hobo with a Shotgun).
In KIDS VS. ALIENS, all Gary wants is to make awesome home movies with his best buds. All his older sister Samantha wants is to hang with the cool kids. When their parents head out of town on Halloween weekend, an all-time rager of a teen house party turns to terror when aliens attack, forcing the siblings to band together to survive the night.
KIDS VS. ALIENS stars Dominic Mariche (“Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” “Team Zenko Go”), Phoebe Rex (“The Last Divide”), Calem MacDonald (“The Umbrella Academy”), Asher Grayson Percival (“Scaredy Cats”), and Ben Tector.
“KIDS VS. ALIENS is everything that I love about film and takes me back to what made me fall in love with movies as a kid,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer of RLJE Films. “To be able to partner with our friends at Shudder to bring Jason Eisener’s instant-classic film to audiences today is beyond thrilling for us.”
Brad Miska (V/H/S), Josh Goldbloom (V/H/S/99), Jason Levangie (Night Blooms), Marc Tetreault (“Moonshine”), and Rob Cotterill (Possessor) produce. Ward and Betsy Rodgers from RLJE Films negotiated the deal with Goldbloom and Miska on behalf of the filmmakers.
RLJE Films will release the film In Theaters, on Demand, and Digital in early 2023 with a Shudder release to follow later in the year.
