A Cross between Alien and Mean Girls SNATCHERS is one of Variety’s “11 Best Movies of the 2019 SXSW Film Festival,” is available to own TODAY - January 7 on Digital, and will arrive on Blu-ray TM Combo Pack and DVD on February 18. and was initially released in new media as a successful short-form series that follows a status-obsessed high school teenager who loses her virginity and finds herself pregnant the next day…with an alien!
Senior year is going to rule! Thanks to her relationship with clueless hunk Skyler, Sara is totally in with the cool girls. But Skyler contracted an extraterrestrial bug during his summer vacation. After just one night together, Sara discovers she’s Nine. Months. Pregnant. Desperate to keep her condition on the DL, she turns to the only person she can trust: her nerdy ex-bestie, Hayley. The girls soon realize this alien problem is only just the beginning. Aliens had best beware in this hilarious comedy filled with action and tongue-in-cheek teen spirit.

The Snatchers new media series was an official selection at Sundance 2017, and won the 2018 Cynopsis Short Form Video Festival, as well as a Bronze Telly Award. The Snatchers movie was an official selection at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival and the 2019 Sitges Film Festival.
Let me start by saying. I loved it! BUT let me preface with the fact that I love gory, funny, kinda Indie B Movies. Now, I am not saying this is a B movie I put it right up there with the A movies. It flows nicely, the acting is good, the storyline is funny, the gory factor is there and did I mention fun!
Sara has sex with her boyfriend who just came back from Mexico. He is tan and hot and she has been holding back. He breaks up with her and she decides to win him back by giving him what he has been waiting for. After a quick and oddly loud climax she asks if he pulled out (did I mention this is not for kids?). He obviously didn't because a day later Sara is hugely pregnant with something! Not just pregnant but ready to give birth. And we thought Bella and Edward's Renesmee was a quick pregnancy!
Thankfully Sara has Hayley played by Gabrielle Elyse who I knew was friggin familiar she was in Modern Family. Together they are doing what they can to survive and take out whatever it is that is now on a rampage killing people.
I love silly, bloody campy movies. This is why we use condoms people!
If you are like me, get entertained with Snatchers!
