Storyline

In Boston, there is an unknown epidemic and the population is consuming the Hydropure water and vegetables from Whitefield Corporation. The City Hall Secretary, Taylor Lambert, contacts a newspaper journalist, Lisa Wallace, expecting to give evidence of a conspiracy that his partner Connie is collecting. However, Glenda is captured and murdered by the guards, and Lambert shoots the Mayor and takes a sample of his blood to give to Lisa. Lambert is hunted and wounded by the police. He meets the journalist, Ben Mosher, who writes for the sensationalist column 'Mystery Science' in the same newspaper. Lambert gives Ben a vial with the Major's blood before he dies and Ben gives the sample to his friend Knutt Jourgensen for analysis. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not So Bad for Fans of B-Movies
6 July 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Boston, there is an unknown epidemic and the population is consuming the Hydropure water and vegetables from Whitefield Corporation. The City Hall Secretary Taylor Lambert (Neil Napier) contacts the newspaper journalist Lisa Wallace (Maxim Roy) expecting to give evidences of a conspiracy that his partner Connie (Glenda Braganza) is collecting in the plant of Whitefield. However, Glenda is captured and murdered by the guards, and Lambert shots the Mayor and takes a sample of his blood to give to Lisa. Lambert is hunted and wounded by the police and he meets the third class journalist Ben Mosher (Gil Bellows) that writes the sensationalist column Mystery Science in the same newspaper. He gives a vial with he Major's blood to Ben before he dies and Ben gives the sample to his friend Knutt Jourgensen (Jesse Todd) for analysis. Sooner Ben and Lisa disclose an alien conspiracy to breed using the Earthling bodies as hosts and nourishment for their offspring.

"Infected" is another sub product of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "X-Files" and "V", but is also entertaining considering that it is a TV movie and not so bad for fans like me of B-movies. The screenplay has many plot holes and a bizarre beginning without much explanation. For example, Connie breaks in the dangerous plant of the aliens to collect evidences alone. Or Lambert unnecessarily shots the Major to collect his blood. Or the lack of explanation how the aliens reached the important positions in the Bostonian society, like Mayor, editor of a newspaper or supplier of water, food and vaccine for the whole population in a country that has governmental agency like the Food and Drug Administration, responsible for protecting and promoting public health through supervision of the products supplied by Whitefield Corporation. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Infectados" ("Infected")
