While returning to Earth, the space shuttle explodes and the fragments bring an alien virus that recodes the human DNA. In Washington, the psychiatrist Carol Bennell observes the modification of the behavior of one of her clients first, then in her former husband and finally in the population in general. Together with her friend Dr. Ben Driscoll the researcher Dr. Stephen Galeano, they discover that the extraterrestrial epidemic affects human beings while sleeping and that her son Ollie, who had chickenpox when he was a baby, is immune to the disease and may save mankind from the outbreak.Written by

In the introduction, when Carol is rifling pharmacy shelves looking for medicines to keep her awake, she says "Clonazepam, good." Clonazepam (better known in the US by its trade name, Klonopin) is an anti-anxiety drug with a sedative effect, not a drug one would take to stay awake. However, her child was also on anti-anxiety drugs, and there was a 50/50 chance that it would render her immune. See more »

Don't waste your time, get a Nicole Kidman poster.
Its another alien invasion movie, and its a bad one. How many times can we see re-makes of "Invasion of the body snatchers"?!? We had the original in 1953, and a re-make 25 years later, in 1978. now 29 years later - they make another one. I guess we should prepare for another one in 2030... 97% of the movie describes the invasion, though the idea is quite well understood after 10 minutes. - then the whole problem is solved at the last 3 minutes like with a magic wand, and with minimal "heroic" action. True - it does have a more modern feel than the old ones, but its the same lame and chewed-up idea all over again, and badly done. Don't waste your time. Don't even waste time downloading it. It's that bad. get a Nicole Kidman poster instead.
