The Darkest Hour

The Darkest Hour follows five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack.

Two young American men travel to Moscow to sell their social networking/party finding software only to find their software is already being sold by the Russian man they were to sell it to.

While commiserating in the company of attractive women, they see an aurora-like apparition in the sky. Some of this light breaks off and lands nearby. When approached it disintegrates the human being. More lights fall and aliens protected by force fields start attacking.

The two Americans, the Russian and two women hide for several days. When they leave their hideout, the group learns that the entire world has apparently been invaded by aliens.
