Alien Rocks
11 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Robert Culp stars as Dr. Paul Cameron, who inadvertently learns of an alien invasion being planned by two sentient rocks(really polymorphic alien parasites with the ability to control minds and assault, then take over human bodies as hosts) when a lab explosion gives him a concussion. After leaving the hospital, Paul takes his wife(and lab assistant) Laurie to Mexico, where a colleague of theirs(played by Barry Atwater) has been possessed by one of the alien rocks, and wants to get them both, before taking on the world... Good acting and atmosphere just about mask the vague plot and silly premise, though this is still quite grim and serious.
