Storyline

Jackie Ivers is a Los Angeles nurse who returns home to the small town of San Vicente to find that her friends and family have taken on bizarrely different personalities. Jackie notices that everyone who goes into the town's lake come out different. As the movie progresses, Jackie first-handedly witnesses what is happening to everyone around her as she is kidnapped by aliens from a parallel world which is the duplicate to Earth but is now polluted and the ozone layer gone. In order to survive, the aliens intend to take over Earth the entrance to the duplicate Earth called the vortex, which are located in major bodies of water, ponds, and lakes. Written by Anonymous

quite good
5 July 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is quite good despite not having a great cast, The story is quite slow to begin with but after a while, it turns into a suspenceful and enjoyable movie, the plot is a cross between 'the stepford wives' and ' invasion of the bodysnatchers' The film isn't very frightening so children will enjoy enjoy this as well as adults.

a must for all die hard sci-fi fans

I'd give this movie a 9/10
