First Trailer for Alien Abduction Indie Horror Film 'Welcome to Willits'
"I ain't sure what they want, but they ain't nice." IFC Midnight has unveiled an official trailer for a sci-fi horror film titled Welcome to Willits, which played at various genre film festivals all last year. Set in the woods of Northern California in an off-the-grid town called Willits, a "haven for marijuana growers, meth addicts, and conspiracy theorists", the story is about a group of teens who get mixed up with a local pot farmer. And then the aliens show up and all hell breaks loose. This is described as a "no-holds-barred pileup of carnage, twisted comedy, and pure crazy." Let's hope all of that is true. Starring Bill Sage, Rory Culkin, Anastasia Baranova, Garrett Clayton, and surprisingly enough, Dolph Lundgren. I don't think I've seen a film that mixes drugs and aliens in this way, can't say it's going to be a good combination. Watch out.
Here's the official trailer (+ new poster) for Trevor Ryan's Welcome to Willits, direct from YouTube:
Deep in the Northern California woods, in the heart of the notorious Emerald Triangle, lies a remote cabin. The residents struggle to fight off the repeated attacks and abductions by mysterious creatures that have plagued them for years. When a local pot farmer is caught up with a wayward group of campers the situation quickly escalates into total carnage. Welcome to Willits is directed by filmmaker Trevor Ryan, making his feature directorial debut after a number of short films. The screenplay is written by Tim Ryan. It's adapted directly from Trevor Ryan's own short film Welcome to Willits: After Sundown from 2013. This first premiered at New York City Horror Film Festival last year. IFC Midnight will release Ryan's Welcome to Willits in select theaters + on VOD starting September 22nd this fall. Anyone want to watch this one?

Aliens and drugs? We already had that in a previous movie: The Crystal skull. Everyone was high on the set.

Aw, it appears that he got so polluted he thought everyone was an alien and killed almost the whole neighborhood. My cheese-sense is tingling-- I sense a big twist at the end...

What really worries me is that Dolph Lundgren looks like a best thing in all this. And that was a very short appearance in the trailer ...
