Movie Review by Nigel A. Messenger
Starring: Jordana Brewster, Salma Hayek, Famke Janssen, Josh Hartnett
Director:: Robert Rodriguez
Alien parasites that need human hosts take over a town starting with the teaching staff at a local high school. As their plan starts to be exposed by a handful of students they rapidly start to take over the whole school and eventually aim to achieve world domination.
This sci-fi thriller is reminiscent of the classic ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ and in fact the characters actually refer directly to that movie. The difference here if that this is closer to ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ in its characters and setting and I have to say I liked it a lot.
