Snatchers 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).
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 as Sara, Gabrielle Elyse as Hayley, J.J Nolan as Kate, Austin Fryberger as Skyler, Nick Gomez as Oscar, and Rich Fulcher 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.
