Storyline

A young girl returns home after being abducted - and that's pretty much the story! This flick is filled with all sorts of sci-fi surprises - big implants, an FBI investigation and a possible alien part. The aliens want to take over Earth by activating hidden technology inside breast implants at a particular time in a coordinated attack, using guided sonar sound to give the population mass constipation so nobody can resist the invasion. But there's a catch. Some people are deaf. Written by Glenn Derpwiler

NOT as bad as suggested elsewhere
15 February 2019 | by raccanicSee all my reviews

For its humble scale and ambition this is a credible effort in storytelling and acting by some seasoned stars. The plot is reasonably gripping/tense at times and will hold your attention. CGI aliens or spaceships are eschewed in favour of 1950's tropes such as paranoia and brainwashing. Enjoyable!
