The residents of an Australian country town take a stand against alien invaders in this homegrown mash-up of Independence Day and Tomorrow, When the War Began.
The second feature from resourceful writer-director Luke Sparke, who gave us monster movie Red Billabong, Occupation makes the most of its low budget, and Sparke’s passion for ’80s genre films (especially Red Dawn) is gleefully apparent. The ensemble cast – including Dan Ewing (Red Billabong), Temuera Morrison (Once Were Warriors) and Jacqueline McKenzie (Romper Stomper) – are also having a blast here. A sequel has already been commissioned, with Crazy Rich Asians funnyman Ken Jeong onboard.
Release Date: September 19, 2018
