With Scream Factory releasing The Vicious Brothers' Extraterrestrial on Blu-ray today, I had a chance to talk with the filmmaking duo of Stuart Ortiz and Colin Minihan about Extraterrestrial’s origins, working with Michael Ironside, Grave Encounters 3, and more.
Thanks for taking the time to chat today. How did you guys come up with the idea for Extraterrestrial?
Stuart Ortiz: It was actually the first script Colin and I ever came up with, which was about eight years ago now. It’s changed a lot since then, though. Colin and I met on the Internet on a filmmaking web forum, a really early one where people put up clips and stuff. This was in the dial-up era, so a one minute-long clip would take all day to upload. We would post short films we made and we liked each other’s work and started chatting and formed this relationship. »

The first season of Bitten performed very well in Canada (where it's produced) and even became Space's highest-rated original series to date. The show performed okay here in the States on Syfy. How will season two do? Will this supernatural series be cancelled or renewed for a third season? If it's a hit in Canada but not in the U.S., will Syfy air future seasons? Stay tuned.
Bitten revolves around the only female werewolf (Laura Vandervoort) in existence and her struggle to try to live a normal life. The cast also includes Greg Bryk, Greyston Holt, Michael Xavier, Genelle Williams, Tammy Isbell, Tommie-Amber Pirie, Sean Rogerson, and Kiara Glasco.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes »

Horror fans usually know where a film is going when they see a group of walk into a cabin in the woods, it means that blood is going to flow as freely as the alcohol they brought with them. This is the perfect example of what to expect with Extraterrestrial, you can tell what is coming because it never deviates from what is expected. In truth though this may be exactly what the Vicious Brothers were aiming for anyway.
When April (Britanny Allen) is asked by her father to take pictures of their holiday cabin in the woods that they are selling her boyfriend Kyle (Freddie Stroma) decides to invite a few friends so they can party all weekend. When »

A group of friends on a weekend trip to a cabin in the woods find themselves terrorised by alien visitors.
We have always been fascinated with life beyond our own, up amongst the shimmering night sky and far distant reaches of the universe. Menahem Golan, co-founder and Chairman of 1980’s “schlock-meisters” studio Cannon Films, once said that life “beyond E.T.” was what we as humans, as cinema-goers, was what we yearned for most. In 2015, it is easier than ever to create such a film experience, even on a smaller, more independent level.
In fact, Extraterrestrial, the new horror film from The Vicious Brothers (not real brothers, really Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz) is the kind of over-the-top, gory and ridiculous sci-fi horror nonsense that helped »
