Storyline

Small rocks fall from the sky which, when touched, trigger a latent virus that has always existed in humans and begins mutating them into an alien species. Taking advantage of its hive mentality, the aliens are absolutely dedicated to transforming every human on Earth and do so with alarming swiftness. Only a small group of humans remain who have the medical knowledge to devise antibodies to reverse the effects of the virus. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

did they even read the book?
21 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I finished the book just 3 days before this mini series aired the first time so the story was fresh in my mind.

They kept the main characters and the very basics of the story.

And though the rest out.

I kept watching each night in horror, hoping it would improve.

It never did.

The main characters where so over acted and poorly done it was just painful to see. And the plot was so hokey; I swear I saw it once in a Saturday morning cartoon.

I think they should pass a law, before you can turn a book into a movie the screenwriters and director should have to read the book first.

From now on I'll skip anything made from a book I liked.
