We have another movie from The Asylum, so we know that we are teetering on plagiarism with the story lines. This one is a ripoff of the classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Basically, the premise of the film is that, after a meteor shower in California, a model agency starts being affected by a plague of sorts when they begin receiving unusual plants (which look like ginger roots in vases). These plants end up cloning the people that they are given to and we go from there.

Erica Roby, the lead role, played a decent role and was very nice to look at. Outside of her though, the rest of the cast was pretty weak.

Overall, the acting was horrendous, but I kept going with this one (not sure why though). By the end of the film, I was pretty happy that I stuck with it. I must have been in a silly mood to have stuck through the entire film, but I felt better for it after being done. If you go in expecting much of anything, you will be disappointed, but if you go in just watching the film to be entertained for a little while, you will enjoy it a little bit.
