A young Brooklyn couple heads to an upstate cabin to unplug from their phones and reconnect with each other. Blissfully unaware of their surroundings, they are left to their own devices as the planet falls under attack.
Jack (John Reynolds) and Su (Sunita Mani) are a hip Brooklyn couple who, like many of their friends, find themselves dependent on technology and unable to put down their phones. Fearing their mindless scrolling may impact their connection with each other, they seize the chance to head to an isolated cabin in the woods, vowing to unplug from the outside world for a week. Sheltered from texts and push notifications, they are blissfully unaware that the planet is under attack. As strange events unfold, the couple must figure out a way back to civilization-or what's left of it.

REVIEW - SAVE YOURSELVES
When a film even a cheap independent film starts and starts well in a way you have to expect that due to budget there will be for example poor effects, creatures or aliens but honestly and surprisingly I found these to actually add to the charm of this film as it simply doesn't take its self too seriously, sorry I'm jumping ahead, let me start from the beginning.
A couple decide to go away and not look at their various devices for the entire week, no phone, no tablets, no laptop and just enjoy each others company.
While away earth gets invaded by what look like Tribbles, yes Star Trek fans a version of our favourite pest returns but this version kills people!
What do they do? what would you do?
I'm not sure if this film is listed as a comedy but a few times I did chuckle to myself so surprising enjoyed this except for the sheer waste of time ending, what happened, you actually get hooked, start enjoying and actually sit on the edge of your seat at what happens at the end and then nothing?
So yes enjoyable but....?
