From deep space... The seed is planted... the terror grows
The first remake of the paranoid infiltration classic moves the setting for the invasion, from a small town to the city of San Francisco and starts as Matthew Bennell notices that several of his friends are complaining that their close relatives are in some way different. When questioned later they themselves seem changed, as they deny everything or make lame excuses. As the invaders increase in number they become more open and Bennell, who has by now witnessed an attempted "replacement", realises that he and his friends must escape or suffer the same fate. But who can he trust to help him and who has already been snatched?

Cine Paco 2: image 3.5 / 5 and Sound 3.5 / 5. Although this is well, I prefer the 1956 version

One of the better "Alien Invasion" movies, Told in that gritty realism way of the 70s cinema. Almost as good as the original from the 50s. Recommended for fans of the genre...
