An anything-but-average aliens attack flick, this modern cult classic finds a twenty-something nurse (Jodie Whittaker), the friendly neighborhood pot dealer (Nick Frost), a visiting stoner (Luke Treadaway), and a teenage street gang (led by current Star Wars hero John Boyega) banding together to prevent an invasion of deadly creatures from taking over their council block – and the world! As funny as it is frightening, this edge-of-your-seat sci-fi treat is sure to become your next cult favorite – if it hasn’t joined that list already.
