1313: UFO Invasion (2012)
A cerebral alien invasion without spaceships and explosions
Going into 1313:UFO Invasion, understand this is NOT an action film, but a cerebral one. You are not going to see spaceships and laser explosions. The aliens are subtle, chameleon, careful not to appear out of the ordinary. They are here to watch, study and collect samples and data. These scientist-aliens are more voyeurs than soldiers.
To that end an unsuspecting group of buff frat boys wind up in the clutches of a 'MILF-ish' alien (the ever lovely Monique Parent) who is here to observe and collect biological samples. One by one, brief wearing frat boy after brief wearing frat boy is waylaid and ends up strapped to a bed for study and lethal extraction of samples.
Subtle, under the radar aliens is an interesting premise, but the way the concept is presented might be better suited for a half hour TV episode of The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits -- there is no gore, sex or bad language. Here we have a story that seems padded with repetition, and is stretched rather thin.
The ending was an unexpected surprise, however. Stick around for it.
