Luke Perry picks up an outer-space pebble in a parking lot, gets zapped, and then startsspreading the alien virus. We’ve been in this territory before (and nowhere better than with theoriginal Invasion of the Body Snatchers), but we’ve never had to see it drawn out to 175 minutesbefore.
Okay, but nuthin’ special. The music starts off rather weak, but then suddenly gets a boostsin volume a few minutes in. There is some rear presence from the sound effe…ts, but not a lot.There’s also the occasional buzz on the dialogue.
Decent enough TV transfer, but some of the same limitations as with the audio. The fleshtones, contrasts and blacks are all good, but there is also a bit of grain visible now and then.
At almost 3 hours, this is a major time commitment for something this slight. Best if you’re ahuge Luke Perry or Robin Cook fan.
