The new episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? looks back at the 2010 film Skyline, directed by the Brothers Strause
A new episode of the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? video series has just been released, and with this one we’re looking back at the 2010 film Skyline (watch it HERE). To find out all about this sci-fi thriller, check out the video embedded above.
Directed by Greg and Colin Strause from a screenplay written by Joshua Cordes and Liam O’Donnell, Skyline has the following synopsis: Jarrod and Elaine travel to Southern California to visit their friend Terry. What should be a fun outing turns into a weekend of horror. At night, strange light signals announce an invasion of giant aliens who attack terrified people. Jarrod and his friends must use all their skills to survive the global genocide.
The film stars Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Brittany Daniel, Crystal Reed, Neil Hopkins, David Zayas, Donald Faison, Robin Gammell, Tanya Newbould, and J. Paul Boehmer.
In the years since Skyline was released, O’Donnell has written and directed two sequels (Beyond Skyline and Skylines), with another (Skyline Radial) in the works.
This is what the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie series is all about: Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster, but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Either way, we have to ask: WTF Happened To This Horror Movie?
The Skyline episode of WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? was Written by Eric Walkuski, Narrated and Edited by Tyler Nichols, Produced by Lance Vlcek and John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
