“Marcus, the entire town has just dropped dead-“
‘Arrival,’ ‘Contagion,’ ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still,’ and just enough shades of ‘Independence Day’ come to mind in an invasion thriller dripping with clear, moody (Ridley Scott inspired) cinematography. It looks great, but as most movies like this, there’s a tease that there’s some fresh idea behind the invaders and one will have to watch the movie in the hopes it will be something original/new.
‘Risen’ is written, directed, and produced by Eddie Arya. Vertical Entertainment will release this in select US theaters and on VOD starting August 20th.
