Aliens are headed to the arctic in the upcoming sci-fi invasion film Slash/Back.

The new trailer, first revealed by JoBlo, gives an Attack the Block-like introduction to the teen heroes doing battle with aliens.

In Slash/Back, “Maika and her ragtag friends discover an alien invasion in their tiny arctic hamlet, and it’s up to them to fight back. Utilizing makeshift weapons and their horror movie knowledge, the aliens soon realize that you don’t mess with the girls from Pang.”

Slash/Back stars Melissa Hood, Nalajoss Ellsworth, and Chelsea Prusky.

Nyla Innuksuk & Ryan Cavan penned the screenplay, and Nyla Innuksuk directed Slash/Back.

Innuksuk’s feature debut premiered at this year’s SXSW, where our own Trace Thurman reviewed the film. Thurman called it “a delightful throwback to ’80s gateway horror that errs on the side of sweetness in lieu of outright scares.”

The film hails from Mixtape VR, Scythia Films, Stellar Citizens, and Red Marrow. Producers are Nyla Innuksuk, The Witch producer Daniel Bekerman, Christopher Yurkovich, Alex Ordanis, Stacey Aglok Macdonald, and Ethan Lazar.

Slash/Back is set to release in theaters and On Demand on June 24, 2022.
