With the Natasha Lyonne/Chloe Sevigny starring Antibirth and Alice Lowe’s upcoming Prevenge, it seems pregnancy horrors may be becoming the new trend in the genre. If so, then horror-comedy miniseries Snatchers couldn’t be arriving at a better time. Check out this recently-released clip from the show, which is set to premiere as part of the Midnight Episodic Showcase at the Sundance Film Festival.
Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman, and Scott Yacyshy wrote the eight-episode series, which stars Not Cool’s Mary Nepi as high school student Sara Steinberg who, the morning after having sex for the first time, finds herself heavily pregnant with an alien sprog. Gabrielle Elyse, J.J. Nolan, The Mighty Boosh’s Rich Fulcher and TV regular Nick Gomez (The Walking Dead, Dexter) also star.
Things are about to get super cray.
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 realise this alien problem is only just beginning. Over the course of the night, Sara deals with her deadbeat 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.
