If you look underneath the surface, the world of contemporary B-movies (aka ‘straight to video’) contains a plethora of films channeling the zeitgeist’s inner anxieties about illegal immigration. Two recent examples:
- Occupation (2018): A small group of town residents have to band together after a devastating ground invasion. As they struggle to survive, they realize they must stay one step ahead of their attackers, and work together for a chance to strike back.
- No Good Heroes (2018): After living peacefully in the caverns of a small town, a stranded group of aliens turn deadly as they fight for their existence, betraying the compassionate chief of police who has protected them for 28 years.
