Robert Picardo is "The Awakened"
Wow, this movie has a lot of balls. After doing a little investigating (I checked Netflix), this movie isn't even out yet and they have a sequel all worked out already. If you go to the website you can check that out. Among other pretty cool things.
Also if you go there you can read the synopsis. I can't copy and paste it and I have no time to write it down to type it here so I'll give you the gist of it: A farmer decides to take down an old tree, but when he does he finds a metallic object buried underneath. Once exposed to sunlight, it comes to life and opens....unleashing the awakened. (Aliens). And from there all hell breaks loose on the farm as they are cut off from society and struggle to fight for their lives.
Before I comment, check out the trailer. This actually looks like it might be a GOOD movie.
Whoa, was that Robert Picardo with a RIFLE? That's AWESOME! I don't recall him ever being that kind of character...the dude with the gun. He's always like the cool headed smooth talkin dude, but not much with the commanding roles. Not that I can recall anyway.
This movie kind of reminds me of Altered. That movie freaked me out. As do most "nasty aliens in the dark" movies do. I don't know why but creepy aliens (especially "the greys") freak me the fuck out and this looks like that kind of movie. I'm looking forward to it. I absolutely adore movies where people are out in the middle of nowhere, no chance of rescue, and there's a terrible evil that they must defeat. It's just a lot of fun in my opinion. (Examples: Tremors, Feast, The Thing.)
Although...we know there's gonna be a sequel so that must mean the aliens win. Fuck.
