The Pitch Black Aliens are the main antagonists of the 2011 British comedy-horror film Attack the Block.
The Pitch Black Aliens are sexually dimorphic creatures thought to drift through space in airtight cocoons like fungal spores, waiting for a planet to land on and invade.
The Pitch Black Aliens are gorilla-sized, gorilla-like creatures with no eyes, fur so black that it reflects no light (i.e. vanta-black), and 2-3 rows of large sharp teeth that glow a bright blue. The females are smaller, almost dog-sized, and are completely hairless.
Powers and Abilities
The Pitch Black Aliens possess the following powers and abilities:
- Sharp teeth
One of the aliens is killed with a samurai sword, but the rest are killed after being sprayed with petrol and set on fire.
- The creatures were portrayed mostly through actors in suits that were enhanced later in post-production.
