I’m not really a huge fan of body snatcher-esque movies, as they usually tread the same ground from one to the next. This one isn’t too different as people get possessed, others don’t know who’s real or not, and somehow the survivors have to figure out how to end the infestation.
While the method of body snatching varies to a degree, here it originates from a meteor (typical) but then blossoms into some tree flowers which puke on people and then possess them. There really weren’t any pod or seed people. The closest we get is some small pod creatures which fly around and try to jump on people.
But we won’t dwell on that despite it being a Full Moon movie. We were not quite into the mid-90’s yet at this point anyway. Aside from the alien and creature plot, it’s tied together by a recently divorced man who moves out into the country and is taken in by his ex. I’m not sure that’s the best of ideas, but so be it. Since this is a movie, there are still feelings there, and we get to root for their eventual reunion.
