Ombis2 to film in West Seneca during June

Jun 4, 2024 | Entertainment

Ombis2 Alien Awakening, which follows Haley Greenheart (Buffalo/Rochester native Paige Cummings) as she attempts to expose an alien invasion cover up featured in the original film Ombis Alien Invasion (filmed in Angola in 2012), will come to West Seneca in June for filming. Haley quickly discovers that the invasion is not over, and something is awakening!

Released in 2013, the original film told a 1950’s-style alien invasion story in a village whose glory days were long past. It begins to infect the townsfolk, making them host to an alien plague known as Ombis. The virus is not the only thing that has invaded this small community. A creature known only as the Nemesis has arrived to contain the alien plague. It is up to a small group of uninfected survivors to fight the invasion and make it out alive. You can stream the original film on all your favorite streaming platforms such as iTunes, Tubi, Amazon Prime, YouTube, VUDU and more.

Director and franchise creator Adam Steigert of Hamburg is currently producing with partners 388 Studios, Macrocosm Productions, MyIndie Productions, Aryndrae Gaming, Smart Luck Productions and Icons of Pop Culture Auctions to bring this next saga to life.

Casting features the talents of Sara Manzella and Jason John Beebe returning; Gregory Blair as the outlandish Dr. Hackman; scream-queen Angel Nichole Bradford; and local artists such as Sean C. Sanders as the Nemesis, Will Nemi as Obji, and bloody Betty herself, Amber Brooke.

The original makeup duo and graduates of the legendary Douglas Academy School of Arts, the team Phill Beith and Jill Jovic-Newbould, will also be returning.

Original stunt coordinator, West Seneca’s Datu Tim Hartman, returns for an epic showdown between man an alien.

In coordination with the West Seneca Chamber of Commerce and The Buffalo Niagara Film Commission, the production will employ 60 local and national artists from California, New York, North Carolina, Virginia and Illinois. The production will be filming special effects for the alien sequel in the gym at 14 Holy Helpers Church from June 17-21.

The sequel embarks on an epic journey into the world of practical makeup and digital special effects and creates an epic intergalactic adventure.
