Risen Film

If you’re a fan of scary apocalyptic body-snatcher flicks, you’ll need to check out Risen when it premieres later next month.

Thanks to a brand new trailer released this week, we get a glimpse into this frightening alien invasion movie, starring Caroline McQuade, Jack Campbell, Kenneth Trujillo, and Wassim Hawat.

The story centers around a small New York town that is completely wiped out from a strange contaminate that leaks out of a fallen meteorite. Homeland Security is called in along with an astrobiologist named Dr. Lauren Stone who is tasked with figuring out what was in that space rock.

When the team discovers that the tree and the risen dead are trojan horses sent from an alien civilization to inhabit Earth, they must fight for the survival of humanity before the aliens completely take over.

Risen is written and directed by Eddie Arya who also worked on 2016’s The System and 2014’s The Navigator.
