Every day in October, the Department of Tangents Blog & Podcast is presenting a different horror short for the Daily Horror Film Fest. Some straight up scary, and some funny. Every Thursday, we’ll be presenting a different horror parody from And You Films. Today’s selection is Diary of A Wimpy Alien, a mashup of up Diary of A Wimpy Kid and Alien.
“We thought it would be fun to contrast the awkwardness of surviving the middle school life cycle, with the horror of surviving the xenomorph life cycle,” says writer/director Brendan Jackson Rogers. “Also, it was a great excuse to buy an alien mask.”
Next week, you’ll get the sequel to Diary, so make sure to pay attention this week so you won’t feel lost.
