Canaries is a funny, dark and action-packed sci-fi horror-comedy that pits a group of drunken friends on New Year’s Eve, in a Welsh valley, against an invasion task force of creepy time-travelling aliens. A kick-ass M.O.D agent, an insecure radio DJ and a kung fu master who owns the local B&B learn their new years resolution this year is simple: STAY ALIVE.
