EJECTA *** Canada 2014 Dir: Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele 87 Mins
On the eve of a solar event 2 men must fight for survival against the unknown, and a group of government agents out to find the truth of what they have seen and prove what is outside of our universe.
Starring Julian Richings (Cube, Wrong Turn) as William Cassidy the man who holds a strong connection with extraterrestrials, this film plays out like a feature length episode of ‘The X-Files’ through its government conspiracy, alien story line and although a lot of the plot isn’t explained or tied up directly this just adds more mystery to the film. Very dark throughout which at times leaves you wondering what you are looking at, this is quite clever as it allows the film makers on a smaller budget to hide their aliens without showing any flaws. Look out for a blink and your miss her moment as Dee Wallace (E.T., The Howling) shows up for mere minutes.
