Snatchers is the latest series to watch out for as it offers a comedic look at the horrors of high school. Given how this stage is pretty overwhelming for some, the show somehow mirrors the complicated young adult world.
The creative team behind the teen horror-comedy series consists of Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman, and Scott Yacyshy. The Snatchers cast includes Mary Nepi, Gabrielle Elyse, Austin Fryberger, J.J. Nolan, Nick Gomez, and Rich Fulcher. Its world premiere takes place during the Midnight Episodic Showcase at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
A quick summary of the Snatchers
Dread Central reports Snatchers is a high school adventure story. Hence, it tackles friendship and self-worth issues.
Interestingly, the eight-episode series offers a twist with the addition of aliens to the plot. The synopsis for Snatchers introduces two key characters from the story.
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 realize 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.
