Invasion of your wallet!!!
31 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

This movie was actually worse than 1 star, but I couldn't find an icon that would be suitable. (Suggestion: a steaming pile of you know what!) There are no pods, no juicy transformations, like in all or any other pod/invasion type genre flick. Instead of a pod, a woman walks into a scene with a store bought piece of ginger root that's stuck in a little planter and proclaims how unusual this plant is etc. It's a stupid piece of ginger for crying out loud!! What did they think, no one would notice? Plus, this film is like watching a porn film without the porn. Once again, an entire budget went into DVD cover art and creating the opening titles, (which were the most interesting element of the movie.) To say this film had any merit what so ever, would be a stretch. The caliber of actors was the lowest tier of washed up "never beens" and "never will be's." An assortment of semi-hot girls that spewed awful, awful dialog (of what you could even hear. Most of it was unintelligible due to poor miking.) Special effects included a smidgen of ketchup on the corner of a person's mouth and what looked like "come" on dangling off of a woman's face, (goo from the pod/ginger root take over.) This was the biggest waste of time since Hide and Creep, another big mega bomb!! I think the actors in this film should stick to what they know best: working the rides at the traveling carny.
