Storyline

In another retelling of the story by Jack Finney, Marti Malone's traveling with her dad on holiday. At a gas station, a soldier tells her to not sleep, because 'they' get you when you sleep. Once in the base, she and her father see people acting odd, and soon realise they're aliens. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Warner Bros. originally scheduled the film for release in October 1992. They opted for the more comedic Innocent Blood (1992) as their horror release that season, as it was felt that the glut of serious genre fare such as Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992), Candyman (1992), Dr. Giggles (1992), and Dracula (1992) would overwhelm the film's potential. The release was moved around several times in 1993 before its unceremonious limited release came in January 1994. See more »

Goofs

In the first shot of Andy falling after being thrown out of the helicopter, his legs are clearly missing, revealing that it's a composite shot. See more »

User Reviews

* * out of 4.
16 September 2002 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

Entertaining, but totally unnecessary and uncalled for remake of the classic 1956 movie makes the fatal mistake of moving the action to a military base which has fallen victim to pods that kill everyone in site and replace them with cold emotionless replacements. Very unmemorable fare with an appealing cast and decent visual effects.

Rated R; Nudity, Violence, and Profanity.
