Harmless time killer.
3 March 2017 | by Hey_SwedenSee all my reviews

For a little movie that shamelessly imitates "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", the Full Moon production "Seedpeople" manages to entertain to a mild degree. It stars Sam Hennings ("Pawn Shop Chronicles", 'Memphis Beat') as Tom Baines, a geologist who returns to his rural home town of Comet Valley. He's there for work purposes, to check out local meteorite activity and give a lecture. He finds that these so-called "meteorites" are actually alien seeds. And these seeds have already begun to take over the area residents. Tom has to team up with local eccentric Doc Roller (Bernard Kates) to save the day.

Although it's not a particularly good movie, "Seedpeople" is a passable bit of schlock. It gets by due to some amusingly goofy looking monsters, a fair amount of gore and slime, and pretty tacky effects work. The location is fairly picturesque, and there's some decent atmosphere to go with it. One of the best touches is that there's only one way in and out of this town, over a bridge that's shut down for repairs during Toms' stay. The cast includes people like lovely lady Andrea Roth ("War", "The Collector", 'Rescue Me'), Dane Witherspoon ('Santa Barbara'), and Sonny Carl Davis ("The Whole Shootin' Match", "Last Night at the Alamo"), and many of them are sincere if also rather nondescript. If "Seedpeople" has an MVP, it would have to be the effectively nutty Kates, who does bring the exposition to life.

It's hard to completely resist the cheesy charms of something like this, if you're like this viewer and have a soft spot in your heart for such genre fare.

Some folks are sure to dig the ending.

Six out of 10.
