Invasion of the body snatchers rip-off
Have seen the trailer for this low budget horror I thought that it could deliver some goodies but sadly it doesn't. If you want to watch this boring flick just watch the trailer and you will have seen the best.
The people from Comet Valley, what's in a name, are under attack of some seeds growing in the forest. The first attack of the eggs looked promising, it was slimy and looked good. the second attack was also rather good with things flying out of the eggs and were sticking on faces. But from there the story becomes rather cheesy and annoying. There's not that much going on from then except some creatures being shown. They didn't look that good and were a bit laughable when rolling around in the forest but after 50 minutes into Seedpeople there was a bell ringing. This is a pure rip-off of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956).
If you are into science-fictions from the fifties, sixties then this is your thing but people by know knew that that particular era is for me a not done. There's almost no blood to spot, and just have a look at a close-up of some teeth, pure rubber.
And for the geeks John Carl Buechler famous for his special effects did the second unit but under the name Doris Carloff and was also responsible for the creatures.
The further it goes the more it looks like Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. And yes, it got an open ending...
