Alien Sniperess (2022) Review
A female sniper on military leave promises to fulfill her fiancé’s dying wish until she encounters a hostile alien invasion and is tasked with saving countless lives.
Alien Sniperess begins with a meteor shower. And with someone ignoring the warnings of films such as The Blob, Night of the Creeps, and Creepshow by getting way too close to one that manages to make it to Earth only to find out it’s not just a chunk of rock.
Elsewhere, Army sniper Chioma (Olivia Okoro, Leap) has just found out her boyfriend was in a car accident on his way to propose to her. He promptly dies after giving her the ring and getting her to take his younger brother Aaron (Sean Laguna, Last American Horror Show, Constitution of the Dead) to his grandparents “up North”. Her friends Kelly (Alaina Laethem, Battlefield 2025, Badland Doves) and Liz (Camille Kerber) offer to come along for support.
Somewhere else, Army marksman Chioma (Olivia Okoro, Leap) has quite recently figured out her sweetheart was in an auto collision while heading to propose to her. He quickly bites the dust subsequent to giving her the ring and inspiring her to take his more youthful sibling Aaron (Sean Laguna, Last American Horror Show, Constitution of the Dead) to his grandparents “up North”. Her companions Kelly (Alaina Laethem, Battlefield 2025, Badland Doves) and Liz (Camille Kerber) propose to go along for help.
Author/chief Joseph Mbah (Expo, Krampus: Origins) sets things up rapidly and monetarily, acquainting us with our leads, referencing reports of weird flare-ups of viciousness and getting things in a real sense out and about inside Alien Sniperess’ initial ten minutes. What’s more, by fifteen we’re watching a shootout with the outsider had a fellow from the initial scene. Not terrible for a low-financial plan film.
Plot-wise Alien Sniperess, (will be “snipers” really a word?), is nothing new. Some sort of outsider parasite in the meteors is assuming command over people and making them foster dangerous propensities. Also, there are Agent Marks (Mark Speno, The Dead of Night, Spiked) from an “Exceptional Branch” of the FBI who is exploring these outsiders alongside connivance scholar Dr. Clark (Sean Dillingham, The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre, Echoes of Violence).
With the had people times Alien Sniperess now and again looks like a zombie film, yet the outsider-controlled bodies have insight, can utilize weapons, and so forth. It’s significantly less expensive than outsider cosmetics or CGI however and leaves some cash for some, projectile injury impacts and additional items for the group scenes, which has more effect than you could suspect. Additionally adding a hint of authenticity, as Dr. Clark. Dilligham really resembles genuine trick nutter Alex Jones.
However, outsider Sniperess surely has a couple of seconds that made me question its rationale. Like moving a hospitalized shot casualty with no sort of help or clinical supplies, or amidst this attack Chioma’s insistence on getting Aaron to his grandparents as opposed to just remaining safe. Furthermore, more direct, couldn’t Chioma have needed to leave her Army-give expert rifleman rifle on base? It could have added to the film’s tension in the event that she needed to conform to a non-military personnel-grade long-range firing rifle.
Yet, Mbah keeps the film moving and accentuates it with enough activity that the imperfections are a greater amount of an inconvenience than real dealbreakers. It likewise helps that film’s tone is on occasion dismal enough that you’re never certain exactly who will bite the dust straight away. It’s not by and large edge of the seat material, yet it will keep your consideration.
The parasite and gunfire impacts by Danny Takacs (Blood Tulips, Dragonflies Only Live for 24 Hours) are persuading enough and the CGI spaceship and gag streaks while not incredible are a stage over an Asylum or Mark Polonia film. The score by Samuel Mizell (Shark Huntress) adds pleasant scenery to the procedures in spite of the fact that I might have managed without the melodies.
Alien Sniperess (2022): Energetically paced and very much made, Alien Sniperess was an unforeseen treat among a fairly disheartening cluster of late deliveries. It’ll work out in a good way for brew and pizza toward the end of the week.
