(Burbank, CA) – Chosen as one of Variety’s “11 Best Movies of the 2019 SXSW Film Festival,” Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings you “Snatchers” - an original horror comedy feature film on Digital January 7, and Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on February 18, 2020. Described as a cross between “Aliens” meets “Mean Girls” - the full-length film was initially released in new media as a successful short-form series that follows a status-obsessed high school teenager who loses her virginity and finds herself pregnant the next day…with an alien! The movie is priced to own at $19.99 SRP for Digital, $24.98 SRP for Blu-ray Combo Pack ($34.97 in Canada), $19.98 SRP for the DVD ($24.99 in Canada).
Senior year is going to rule! Thanks to her relationship with clueless hunk Skyler, Sara is totally in with the cool girls. But Skyler contracted an extraterrestrial bug during his summer vacation. After just one night together, Sara discovers she’s Nine. Months. Pregnant. Desperate to keep her condition on the DL, she turns to the only person she can trust: her nerdy ex-bestie, Hayley. The girls soon realize this alien problem is only just the beginning. Aliens had best beware in this hilarious comedy filled with action and tongue-in-cheek teen spirit.
“’Snatchers’ is a tale of friendship, self-worth and…aliens,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE Senior Vice President, Originals, Animation and Family. “The film brings the spirit of horror combined with gut-busting comedy with its edgy humor and bloody alien creatures. ‘Snatchers’ is sure to keep you glued to your screen until the very end.”
“Snatchers” stars Mary Nepi (“Not Cool”) as Sara, Gabrielle Elyse (Nickelodeon’s “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn,” “The Thundermans”) as Hayley, J.J Nolan (“The Mindy Project,” “Silicon Valley”) as Kate, Austin Fryberger (“Huge In France”) as Skyler, Nick Gomez (“Longmire,” “Dexter”) as Oscar, and Rich Fulcher (“Those Who Can’t”) as Dave. Written by Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman, & Scott Yacyshyn, and directed by Cedars & Kleiman, the film is a Stage 13 presentation with award-winning producer Paul Young for Make Good Content production in association with The Olde Money Boyz. The “Snatchers” new media series was an official selection at Sundance 2017, and won the 2018 Cynopsis Short Form Video Festival, as well as a Bronze Telly Award. The “Snatchers” movie was an official selection at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival and the 2019 Sitges Film Festival.
