Watch Episode 3 of Alice in Chains' Creepy Sci-Fi Horror Film 'Black Antenna'

Father and daughter alien duo are back, now with an origin story of their Earthly arrival

When we last saw the father and daughter alien anti-hero duo who serve as the protagonists of Alice in Chains–inspired sci-fi horror film Black Antenna, they'd just been attacked by a man they were attempting to rob in order to extract the precious metals they needed in the dude's teeth. The scene picks up in the latest episode of the serially released feature with the father in agony due to a gunshot wound, which his daughter tends to by creepily reaching into his body cavity to dig around and withdraw the bullets from his gut, tossing the gooey chucks of lead out the window of their SUV before they head back to what appears to be their home base. A quick flashback to a year prior shows the origin story of the mysterious twosome in which the dad comes to earth via a spaceship crash and takes over the body of an unsuspecting human, then he "makes" his daughter in a mysterious process through which he births her body from his own stomach. "Why did you make me?" she asks, to which he replies, "I was lonely."

From the previews and trailers that led up to the film's release we know there's a crazed preacher-like character who shows up, and episode three marks his debut. After police investigate the scene of the robbery and discover a mysterious white goo left behind by the bleeding alien father, they call in "Nil," the buttoned-up man from the previews. He tastes the liquid in an extreme gross-out moment, then immediately begins communicating telepathically with the alien father who quickly "tunes him out" during his offensive anti-immigrant speech.

The sociopolitical implications echoing our own current society are no coincidence. Director Adam Mason told SyFy of the film, "It was really a combination of the homeless problem in Los Angeles and what's happening with immigration in the past few years that set my mind whirring." Despite these parallels with modern-day American culture, Mason states, "It's not really a political movie, it's just whenever I hear the term 'illegal alien' I immediately start to wonder if extraterrestrial aliens would be welcome here. And the answer is probably 'fuck no!'"
