If writer/director Dominic Burns’ “Alien Uprising” sounds familiar, then it’s probably because you heard about the flick when it was called “UFO.” Since that sort of title doesn’t really fly in the North American market — plus it knocks you to the back of the Netflix and Redbox — the film is now known as “Alien Uprising.” Thankfully, it retains the cameo from Jean-Claude Van Damme, which is the only reason it’s getting covered here today. Sorry, everyone else.
A synopsis, if you so desire:
A group of friends awake one morning to find all electricity and power shut off, and an immense alien aircraft hovering in the air above their heads. Suddenly this regular group of friends is battling to survive, as the entire human race is threatened by the alien army hovering ominously above.
In addition to Jean-Claude Van Damme, “Alien Uprising” features Bianca Bree, Sean Brosnan, and Simon Phillips. I managed to dig up the recently-released trailer, you know, in case the images and the poster weren’t doing it for you. Dominic Burns’ flick will hit VOD on June 21. According to Amazon, the DVD will arrive on retail shelves this December. Merry Christmas!
