Review

A bit of a mashup remake here, much like he 1987 film The Hidden starring Kyle MacLachlan, Bad alien comes to earth and takes over people periodically jumping bodies to escape pursuit. It’s hunted by a second alien that comes to earth to track and kill it. Even the alien taking over an exotic dancer’s body is reused here; poorly it has to be said. Slight variations on the them with a touch of Men in Black and zomie neck munching mixed in for good measure.
CGI and special effects are domestic standard and leave a lot to be desired, but the audio is even worse. Very poorly mixed and much of it muffled like the effect you would get if you were listening to the sound through a plasterboard wall. The paper thin script is barely able to beat the credits in word count, and its just as well given its as clichéd and stilted detergent commercial. The acting and direction are in a closely fought battle of atrociousness and its a difficult decision to call as to which is worse.
This is probably going to be one of the worst alien films you’ll see featuring ‘grays’ people being taken over or strippers with aliens inside them. It certainly lands in my top ten worst alien films, and I’ve seen some doozies.
It really isn’t worth seeing as there is nothing new, exciting or even interesting to see here.
