Ejecta is a 2014 science fiction film that was directed by Chad Archibald and Matt Wiele.[1] The film's script was written by Tony Burgess and stars Julian Richings as a man that has experienced an extraterrestrial encounter.[2] Ejecta had its world premiere on August 3, 2014 at Fantasia Festival and Canadian film rights were purchased by Anchor Bay Canada.[3]


William Cassidy (Julian Richings) is a man who has had steady interactions with extraterrestrials for the last 40 years, which has left him so filled with paranoia and fear that he now spends his days as a blogger living in seclusion. He contacts Joe Sullivan (Adam Seybold), an alien researcher and conspiracy theorist blogger, and invites him to his home on the night of a solar event that Cassidy believes could be potentially dangerous to Earth. The film switches back and forth between footage from that night to a later day where Cassidy is being interrogated by an unseen person.



Dread Central praised Ejecta for its script, writing "On the surface Ejecta is a twisting tale of sci-fi horror involving shadowy figures, terrestrial or otherwise; but Burgess, never one to spoon feed you answers, slides in the subtext in an almost inconspicuous manner, compelling the viewer to truly think about what they just watched."[4] Shock Till You Drop also praised Burgess's script in their review and stated that while the film's aliens "do bring some scares, the real horror is the way it toys with the mortality of people and the planet."[5]
