Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be reviewing the movie, “Useless Humans” directed by Stephen Ohl. The premise of the film follows four friends who after years are finally having a reunion in a remote cabin to celebrate one of their 30th birthdays! They encounter an alien who crashes the party! This is a sci-fi/horror/comedy that manages to include all those elements throughout the film. With everything going on right now and being a slow year for horror movies, this film came in as a breath of fresh air. I came across this movie online randomly and decided to give it a shot. It reminded me of a mix of American Pie, Men in Black and a bit of Attack the Block.
I actually enjoyed this movie. It was more of a feel good sci-fi comedy movie, it managed to keep my attention until the end. There were some plot points that I thought were not necessary like the 2 agents that come in mid-film. Other than that it is not a typical horror, so do not expect to be scared. It was more of an adventure filled film with lots of comedy! If you just want a film to laugh at and enjoy for its simplicity then definitely check out this movie! The alien did remind me a bit of the alien in The Stan Romanek documentary lol. Go check this movie if you love aliens and enjoy cheesy jokes! P.S. The track in the film “Superstar” by ill Addicts is dope, I had that song stuck in my head lol.
Thank you for reading my movie review. Hope you all enjoyed it! Until next time horror fiends and hip hop heads!
