Grey Aliens are an unidentified species of aliens who attacked and abducted a group of human teenagers in the horror anthology film V/H/S/2. They serve as the titular antagonists of the segment Slumber Party Alien Abduction.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Grey Aliens are an extremely aggressive and hostile species who seem to have great deal of contempt for humans as they show no regard for human life and attempt to kill children without any form of provocation. Regardless of how hostile they are towards humans, they still abduct living human children, indicating the aliens had plans to experiment on them to study their biology.
The Greys also appear to be completely savage and unintelligent but are in fact extremely intelligent as proven when they failed to capture the teens with brute force they retreat to their ships and use sirens and flashing lights to replicate the police in order to lure their prey out.
Biology[edit | edit source]
Unlike most media portrayals of grey aliens, these beings are much taller and muscular and have sharp claws. They also appear to be amphibious to a certain degree as one is seen breathing underwater without any form of respiratory equipment. The aliens can see in the dark, which is how one of them managed to tackle Zack easily.
History[edit | edit source]
One of these beings is first seen on camera in the lake outside the teens' home but it is only seen by the Yorkshire terrier Tank and is missed by the teens. Later that night, the aliens begin frightening the kids with bright lights and deafening noises. Realizing the aliens are in the house and have cut the power, one of the teens attempts to scare off the intruders with a shotgun, only to be quickly grabbed by one of the aliens. The aliens attack the rest of the teenagers in the house, dragging them in their sleeping bags, and attempting to drown them in the lake.
Only three of the teens and Tank escape, running into the woods to hide. After Tank inadvertently alerts the aliens to their location by barking, the group run toward what they believe to be police lights and sirens, but it turns out to be a trap set by the aliens who abduct one of the teens. The survivors flee to a nearby barn, where the aliens drag one away as the last boy and Tank escape up a ladder. As the aliens close in on the boy, he is suddenly pulled into the air by the alien ship's tractor beam. As he is pulled into the air, his grip loosens on Tank's leash, and Tank falls down the ladder to the floor, the impact loosening the camera from his back. Mortally injured by the fall, Tank whimpers as he and the camera both slowly die.
