Let’s face it – aliens and found-footage go collectively like peanut butter and jelly. From the notorious “McPherson Tape” to the high-energy chaos of “Cloverfield,” there’s an unfairly untapped marketplace for a very good found-footage horror film revolving round aliens and the nefarious issues they stand up to.
Whereas “Youngsters Vs. Aliens” is shot extra historically, Eisener is thinking about getting again to creating found-footage motion pictures. He credit this love of the subgenre with two extraordinarily particular inspirations, considered one of which being movies shot from an animal’s perspective. The opposite? Properly, that is a bit extra obscure.
“I used to be actually impressed by Stuart Gordon‘s ‘Aliens’ Experience,” he informed Ryan. “I by no means received to do it … however I really like any clips I can discover on-line about it.”
The experience in query was “Aliens: Experience on the Velocity of Fright,” a simulator attraction that utilized an in-ride video timed to motion-simulating seats. The reminiscence of the attraction, which ran in San Franscisco and Derbyshire, persists on-line largely within the type of POV recordings. These recordings, Eisener says, are rather a lot like the flicks he goals to make.
“That was an enormous inspiration on [my career],” he mentioned. “So I wish to do extra of these, extra type of little experience motion pictures in a approach. That is how I see them.”
“Youngsters Vs. Aliens” arrives in theaters and on digital platforms someday in 2023. Try our write-up of the recently-released trailer right here.
