Invasion of your wallet!!!
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..
This will made you feel like a pod.
Invasion.Of.The.Pod.People should not make it to DVD.
The plot has major problems, the script couldn't get a D- in a high
school film class, the camera had the finesse of a single chopstick,
direction was completely absent, and the costumes made our heroine look
like she just entered the third trimester. The dramatic tension came
only from knowing it wasn't over yet. The effects consisted of a ginger
root in a flower pot.
This is not a B movie, there is not one redeeming feature in this work,
even the titillation, that started halfway through, was not erotic and
the actress giving cunnilingus may have been asleep during filming.
I could go on, but please don't watch this film. It could made you feel
like a pod..
