Storyline

Nearly a decade after occupation by an extraterrestrial force, the lives of a Chicago neighborhood on both sides of the conflict are explored. In a working-class Chicago neighborhood occupied by an alien force for nine years, increased surveillance and the restriction of civil rights have given rise to an authoritarian system - and dissent among the populace.

I gave it an 8 for creative force.
31 May 2020 | by vulcanism22See all my reviews

I could not help but admire this dark film and feel...it was a prequel to 10 Cloverfield Lane. Remember that movie, where John Goodman is locked in an underground facility and takes a girl hostage. If you have not seen it, you should. Though different creative forces behind the two movies, for me, it fit perfectly with my imagination. I watched this on Showtime and really enjoyed it.
