Trivia

Elijah Wood, Clea DuVall, Jordana Brewster and Shawn Hatosy appear in the music video for "Another Brick in the Wall, part 2", performed by the Class of '99, which is featured in the film's soundtrack. In keeping with her character Stokely, Clea DuVall does not lip sync the lyrics with her co-stars. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 7 mins) When Zeke hands out the Scat pens to determine who amongst them may be an alien the blue cap is still on as they inhale from the other end. Now unless they have a huge inhaling capacity there's no way to inhale a whole pen's worth with one end of a tube sealed. See more »

Interesting.....
24 May 1999 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Finally after the appalling "I Know what you did Last Summer" franchise, writer Kevin Williamson comes back strong with this enjoyable slice of movie literate, sci-fi black comedy.

Cult director Robert Rodriguez skilfully mixes shocks with laughs in this pseudo-remake of "Body Snatcher" movies. If you are willing to sit back and disconnect your brain for two hours, you could naturally do a lot worse than this.

Recommended! 8/10
