“Prepare yourselves! For a new form of extra-terrestrial terror!”, says a panicked narrator in the new sci-fi trailer for Save Yourselves! The Bleecker Street comedy, one of my personal favorites from Sundance, stars John Reynolds and Sunita Mani as a couple who set aside their technology and go off the grid in a cabin, only to be the last people aware of an alien invasion.
And what is the world attacked by? Pouffes.
Pouffes? What the fuck is a pouffe?
Think of it as a piece of furniture. An ottoman, or as Sunita’s character Su says, “a furry foot stool.”
The trailer is done in the style of old school black & white PSA horrors, think the original Reefer Madness.
The film was written and directed by Alex Huston Fischer and Eleanor Wilson, with John Early, Amy Sedaris, Jo Firestone, Ben Sinclair, and Johanna Day as co-stars.
Save Yourselves! opens October 2nd with a digital release on October 6th.
