‘To save our world they must destroy theirs’
Alien: Reign of Man is a 2017 American science fiction horror film directed by Justin Price (Forsaken; Dark Moon Rising; The Cloth). Deanna Grace Congo, Torrei Hart (But Deliver Us from Evil), Khu (The 13th Friday; Dark Moon Rising; The Cloth), and Cameron White star.
Stranded on a distant planet, a desperate team must fight aliens and activate a machine meant to restore Earth to a time before its downfall…
Alien: Reign of Man really makes no sense. The director was obviously in love with his “vision”, as he called it, at the expense of telling an interesting story; he allowed cheap cosplay costumes, frequently mediocre CGI, interminable wanderings through a barren landscape, and long scenes of smouldering stares to get in the way of something to say. Along with horror comedy, this is another casualty of overreaching low-budget filmmakers: transcendental storytelling.
