Before We Vanish
Science Fiction • 2017 • 2 hr 9 min
This is like when Ragdoll games, body horror, and UFO had a threesome that turned into this film and I love it!
Love this take on alien invasion, war, and happiness. The kind of movie that makes you feel a little empty when the story resolves.
Good premise with a cheesy ending.
