Pathetic remake of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (qv) with performances which are so inept that all the characters may as well be emotionless zombies. Ha ha! See what I did there? In all honesty, it's clear that the cast members here just did one for the money and no investment or effort was put in by a single person, including the director, screenwriter or crew.
The 1955 and 1978 versions already perfected the idea, this is purely an example of shambolic money-grabbing lazy filmmaking. Even the 1993 MTV version (The Body Snatchers) was better than this!
