Worst case scenario expert, Dr. Caffrey, recruits a team of elite and slightly eccentric scientists to determine if an alien civilization has made first contact with the human race. Mysteries abound. Is the alien race trans-dimensional? Is it friendly or malevolent? If friendly, why did the crew members of the ship that encountered the alien kill each other? Is the strange helical symbol an attempt at communication? Are the aliens altering the DNA of human test subjects? And how are the odd dreams/nightmares everyone is having related?

INVASION of the Body Snatchers
16 April 2006 | by (Jacksonville,Fl) – See all my reviews

Dr. Caffrey and her team must investigate a chilling situation on the Big Horn, a U.S. Naval cargo freighter, after its crew is terrorized by a signal from a mysterious craft that lands in the mid-Atlantic Ocean. Once it's discovered that most of the ship's men have perished or disappeared except for one, First Mate Gunneson, they observe him and study his strange behavior until he jumps overboard. Meanwhile, Dr. Caffrey, Cavennaugh and Pegg discover a video of the craft that emits a loud noise that causes them to have a severe physical reaction, and it is then that they realize they've made first contact with an unexplainable force and must now follow Caffrey's contingency plan to the letter. However, Dr. Caffrey and her team realize that other missing crew might not have perished, just like Gunneson. Now, in order to contain the situation, they must find him and any other crew members to figure out what has affected them before it spreads to the rest of the population and creates a crisis situation.
