‘The Three’ explores the relationship between 3 alien species

An upcoming sci-fi thriller claims to be the first movie to explore the relationships between three different alien species: the insectoids, the reptilians, and the greys.

Versa Media Inc. and AVA Video Productions are the production companies behind The Three. The filmmakers recently released a teaser trailer that highlights twenty-five minutes of the film.

The film’s official synopsis describes:

When Brian LaRue becomes convinced that his father is being visited by extraterrestrials, he takes it upon himself to seek out answers from Jonas Allenbach, a local recluse who claims his son was abducted seventeen years earlier. But as Brian delves deeper into the mysteries surrounding what Jonas refers to as ‘The Three,’ terrifying realizations come to light and Brian must confront the demons of his war-torn past, which just might be exactly what ‘The Three’ desire. ‘The Three’ turns the alien abduction genre on its head with this story of one man’s frightening journey to discover balance and what it really means to be human.

Crowdfunding enabled the film to get to its current point, thanks to a successful campaign on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. But, although the film already has a trailer, the project is still reportedly in its production stage. As horror film news site Dread Central explains, “The film’s producers now plan to tour with these segments and seek additional investment to bring the entirety of the film to life.”

Although this movie is fictional entertainment, some of its content may be based on real alleged alien contact and abduction cases. Andrew Bennett, the film’s co-director, explains, “This is a film that draws on source material regarding abductions and extraterrestrial interaction that people are genuinely terrified about. Kenneth (co-director) and myself are really excited about the web of conspiracy theories that binds this film together.”

There is no published release date for The Three yet. But filmmakers post updates about the project on the movie’s Facebook page.

Alien movie ‘Ejecta’ plays on secret government conspiracies

IFC Midnight is making it clear that UFOs and aliens are a key focus in the company’s content portfolio. The subsidiary of AMC Networks acquired distribution rights to two UFO-related films earlier this year: Hangar 10 and Extraterrestrial. And, this distribution label has reportedly just acquired distribution rights for another UFO-related movie titled Ejecta.

Entertainment news website Bloody Disgusting describes that, in Ejecta, “reclusive UFO conspiracy theorist William Cassidy is taken prisoner by a secret government agency investigating the arrival of an alien life form. Through flashbacks they uncover the terrifying details of what happened the night the alien returned and changed everything we thought we knew about the universe.”

The movie was written by Tony Burgess, directed by Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele, and produced by independent studio Foresight Features. Dee Wallace, the mom from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, makes a cameo in this film. The film also stars Julian Richings, Lisa Houle, and Adam Seybold.

Ejecta premiered back in August at the 2014 Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal. It’s unclear what IFC Midnight has planned for the movie. But, if it follows the same formula used for Hangar 10 and Extraterrestrial, the movie will soon be made available as video-on-demand, and released in select theaters.

The plot of this movie might sound familiar. Movie news website /Film states, “Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: suburban kids who like to ride bikes find a cute little alien, then try to help the little guy get home even as adult Earth authorities close in on their discovery.” Based on the preview alone, there appears to be hints of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, The Goonies, and Super 8. And maybe even a little Batteries Not Included too, because the extraterrestrial appears to be some sort of intelligent robot.

The film’s full synopsis details:

After a construction project begins digging in their neighborhood, best friends Tuck, Munch and Alex inexplicably begin to receive strange, encoded messages on their cell phones. Convinced something bigger is going on, they go to their parents and the authorities. When everyone around them refuses to take the messages seriously, the three embark on a secret adventure to crack the code and follow it to its source. But taking matters into their own hands gets the trio in way over their heads when they discover a mysterious being from another world who desperately needs their help. The epic, suspenseful and exciting journey that follows will change all of their lives forever.

This movie is yet another addition to the found-footage genre. In the film, the kids decide to document their adventure, so the illusion is created that everything the viewer sees on screen was filmed by the kids.

Earth to Echo opens in theaters on July 2.
