Director Nacho Vigalondo, Producer Nahikari Ipiña, Actor Julián Villagrán, Director of Photography Jon D. Domínguez, and Art Director Idoia Esteban live in person!
Julio wakes up with one hell of a hangover. As he gradually takes in his surroundings, it's obvious he's not in his own bed. He introduces himself to Julia, his apparent hookup from the night before, and they go through the typically awkward conversation. Julia is clearly trying to get him out of her apartment as soon as possible. But as he gathers his belongings they realize that things are much too quiet, even for a Sunday. A quick trip to the balcony reveals absolutely no one on the street. They gaze off into the distance and see a huge spaceship looming on the horizon. While they struggle to understand what they're seeing, Julia's neighbor Angel stops by. Angel brings news of the alien invasion, and it becomes apparent that he's obsessed with Julia and maybe even spying on the apartment. When Julia's live-in boyfriend Carlos comes home, things become even more complicated. The four acquaintances must try to find a way to survive threats from both outside and within, and maybe make some sense of their situation.
Fantastic Fest favorite Nacho Vigalondo is back with his second feature film. EXTRATERRESTRIAL showcases Nacho's sure-handed direction and tight pacing, bringing the audience in and then keeping things moving steadily towards the conclusion. The acting is top-notch, bringing to life a witty, sharply-written script. Engaging and funny, EXTRATERRESTRIAL is a worthy follow up to 2007's wildly successful TIMECRIMES.
