Limp, half-arsed remake of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers set in an American high school with conceptual visuals from John Carpenter's The Thing thrown into the mix for good measure. 
A similar thing was done in the equally abysmal Disturbing Behavior, released the same year, but you expect much more from a cast of familiar names or a skilled director like Robert Rodriguez. 
It's just another re-imagining of a classic film which suffers from a lack of imagination.
