When I saw District 9, five people had left the theatre in the first 20 minutes. This is due to the CNN style interviews with MNU employees who knew the protagonist, Wilkus, a white South African supervisor in the Johannesburg. He is instructed by his father to oversee the mass eviction of the residents in District 9. Who are only Crustecean like Prawns, Aliens whos ship hovered in over Johannesburg 28 years ago, and then their ship whent Kaput.Wilkus then proceeds to visit several Alien hovels to serve them notices, and trying to control his racist (Alienist?) mercenaries from killing every Prawn within a mile. While naïve, yet caring Wilkus faces getting assaulted by hundreds of furious Prawns, Christopher Johnson and his youngling watch in terror as a fellow Prawn is executed for assaulting, after helping Christopher finish his 20 year project by finding a missing liquid canister. When Wilkus comes for Christopher and his child, Wilkus sprays himself with the chemical, starting of a chain of events in this Shock-Fi event, filled with suprises,mysteries, and some serious tugging at the heart strings for the segregated Aliens, not wanted by the world, but with no way to return home. Wilkus then faces his company and South African gangs to unlock the secrets in District 9

(Note:Strangley, Prawns understand english, but don't speak it, and vice versa with humans)
