In "Skyline" (movie), a sci-fi thriller, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame. Once outdoors, a terrifying extraterrestrial force begins to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth. In a matter of hours, we will all be gone.

Jarrod (Eric Balfour of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") and Elaine's (Scottie Thompson of "Star Trek") trip to Southern California was supposed to be a simple weekend away to visit Jarrod's best friend, Terry (Donald Faison of television's "Scrubs"), and Terry's girlfriend, Candice (Brittany Daniel of "Club Dredd"), for his birthday. But when sunrise arrives two hours early in the form of a haunting light from an unknown source, life as they know it is finished. As they watch in terror from Terry's penthouse windows, people across the city are drawn outside and swallowed into massive alien ships that have blotted out the L.A. skyline.

Now, it will take every survival instinct they have to elude capture from the thousands of monstrous creatures that are sweeping the city and searching for all humans in their path. From tankers to drones and hydra-like extraterrestrials, the aliens are inescapable and seemingly indestructible. In the sci-fi thriller "Skyline," the end of the world has come…and it's just outside your window.

With "Skyline," visual-effects masters The Brothers Strause ("AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator—Requiem")—whose company Hydraulx has imagined visual effects for "Avatar," "2012," "Iron Man 2," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "300"—have directed, produced and financed an independent film of epic proportions. The behind-the-scenes production team includes cinematographer Michael Watson (A Perfect Getaway), editor Nicholas Wayman Harris ("Sinner"), production designer Drew Dalton ("The Big Jump"), costume designer Bobbie Mannix ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") and composer Matthew Margeson ("Burning Palms"). Creatures for the film are designed by the team of Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. ("AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator—Requiem").
