The Invasion

This 21st century remake of the horror classic "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" returns for a new generation of DVD fans that stars Nicole Kidman as Dr. Carol Bennell, a psychiatrist who also happens to be a single mother and is keeping her friendship with Doctor Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig) plutonic at best, though there are hints that both want a bit more out of their relationship.

This all takes a backseat when the behaviors of everyone around them start to change. Carol's husband (Jeremy Northam) is among the first infected and is suddenly a lot less expressive. This is a trend that continues as people stop displaying any signs of emotion and literally go about their daily lives, yet seem to resemble nothing more than zombies.

As it becomes more and more evident that an epidemic is at hand, Carol's son, Oliver (Jackson Bond), might be the only help for the planet. Things escalate and leads Carol to Baltimore where she tries to stave off going to sleep (even though infected, the change doesn't take affect until REM sleep happens) and hopefully can help save the world. A classic modern interpretation of a cult classic, even though Kidman seems a little wooden as Dr. Carol Bennell, even so... the Invasion was an entertaining psychological horror!

The DVD has decent video quality, although a little dark in some areas, great sound and some interesting special features to round this DVD up nicely. Great stuff!
