"You didn't just go to sleep last night and wake up nine months pregnant." Ahead of its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Snatchers is teased in a new clip and photos that show the eerie events surrounding an unexpected pregnancy in the upcoming horror comedy series produced by STAGE 13.
"SNATCHERS is a high school adventure story about friendship, self-worth, and aliens. Sara is one of the cool kids: she’s got the right friends, makes the right jokes... and is totally terrified of losing her status. She’d be a lot more secure if she could just win back her super-hot ex, Skyler. But he’s not interested unless they move to the next level. Sara decides to take the plunge, but soon discovers Skyler isn’t just horny like a normal teenage boy. Something changed on his summer trip to Mexico. Something in his nards. When Sara wakes up the next morning nine-months pregnant, she goes to the only person she can trust: her nerdy ex-best friend, Hayley. After a trip to the clinic turns horrific, Sara and Hayley realize this alien problem is only just beginning. Over the course of the night, Sara deals with her dead-beat baby daddy, a disapproving mom, and judgmental friends. Ultimately, this is a story of a girl finding self-worth and learning to accept her choices… by killing aliens.
The 2017 Sundance Film Festival will premiere eight short-form episodes of this otherworldly horror-comedy series."
