British visual effects artist Gareth Edwards directed this low-budget sci-fi drama entirely in Mexico. The story takes place six years after an inadvertent earthly invasion of alien DNA. A cynical journalist (Scoot McNairy) agrees to escort his boss' daughter (Whitney Able) through the heavily quarantined alien-infected zone in Mexico to the relative safety of the U.S. border. A tense road trip though giant-monster-infested territory ensues. This one's more about atmosphere than action, but the grim scenery and taut sociological context are hard to shake. 94 minutes
