''Attack The Block'' is a 2011 British comedy-horror film directed and written by Creator/JoeCornish and produced by EdgarWright. In South London, a teenage street gang -- Moses, Pest, Dennis, Jerome, and Biggz -- are mugging a female nurse (Sam) when a meteor comes crashing down into a nearby car. It's no meteor, though -- it's an alien. A hostile, violent alien. [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily With big scary teeth]]. After attacking Moses, the alien is killed by the gang -- but more come crashing down, and itís up to these kids to take them down and save their block.

* {{Badass}}: Moses, without question. Give him his due, Hi-Hatz is also pretty Badass. An absolutely loopy one you'd never root for, but he is one, nonetheless.

* NoEyes: Most obvious on the female alien, which lacks the thick pelt of the males.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After the attack in Tia's flat, she and her friends [[spoiler:realize that the aliens are going only after Moses' group and whoever is with them]] and thus decide the best way to stay alive is by getting the hell out of the building asap. [[spoiler:It works.]]

*** Justified, as it ''is'' mentioned that it's Bonfire Night, which is one of the police's busiest nights of the year. All the fireworks would also mask the sound of aliens crash landing.
