Did You Know?


Alex Russell was previously attached to star before Lee Pace was cast. See more »


Most or all of the "AK47" style rifles in the movie are lightly-dressed Vektor R4 or R5 rifles. While derived from the Valmet, which is in turn derived from the Kalashnikov, they have a distinctly different receiver shape visible in some scenes.

The Vektor rifles are very rarely exported, and would be almost unheard of in Kenya. This reveals that the production was in South Africa instead. See more »

Top notch low budget sci fi
5 July 2017 | by sacdalysimonSee all my reviews

Good entertaining low budget sci-fi , has a feel of district 9/elysium but i suppose as its filmed in south Africa there are comparisons ,didnt realise it was a uk/south African collaboration as the uk don't make that many good looking sci-fi movies and given the budget this pulls off a believable apocalyptic end of the world look ,cgi is of good standard way better than a made for sci-fi channel own production, but not quite up there with Hollywood but you wouldn't expect that but the aliens look cool and realistic. good believable story a few cliché moments that i let pass characters all have a purpose and a good looking leading lady 7/10 as i was impressed by the effort and would watch a film made by Joe Miale/ Rowan Athale again.

To sum it up not as big or as good as the for-mentioned films above but stands proud just behind them holding its head up high for the pleasure of sci-fi fans around the world to enjoy.
