Sadly, that opportunity is completely wasted.
Sammy Mantis
Couple that with a predictable ending and there really isn't much to recommend this horror-lite Sci-fi flick.

when a creature from outer space resembling a mutant tree craves world domination it does so by turning people into plant monsters (three types the sailor a fly-like creature that acts as a scout,the tumbler a furry plant thing turns into a thorny ball and the shooter a two legged no armed plant beast that takes over peoples minds or turns them into other shooters) and by using the residents of an oterwise quiet town to germinate more plant creatures the only ones who can stop it are a man returning to the town a unbalenced mad scientest a young cop and two teenaged girls

Evil has sprouted in Comet Valley, in the form of some unusual inhabitants: Shooter, Tumbler and Sailor, bloodthirsty plants with a nasty personality. They're persuasive in attracting followers to their cause-an ingenious plan to pollinate and rule the world. Their plot might come to fruit unless a few enlightened humans can find a way to stop them.
Tom Bains (SAM HENNINGS) is a state geologist sent to Comet Valley to investigate a possible meteorite landing from the past. He notices the strange behavior of many of the town's citizens, particularly Doc Roller (BERNARD KATES), a botanist with a chilling theory about the meteorite. Roller believes the fragments that fell from the sky are actually seeds, which are suddenly germinating at an uncontrollable speed.
Bains and Doc team up with Brad Yates (DANE WITHERSPOON), the town's Deputy Sheriff, and Heidi Tucker (ANDREA ROTH), Bains' former sweetheart, in a desperate attempt to stop the attack and free Comet Valley from the SEEDPEOPLE.

A silly mid-80s horror with trashy but fun effects & a feel of leaden amateurishness & derivative scripting. I rather liked the rolling & kind of flying seed-creatures & the pitiful rip-off of Invasion of the Bodysnatchers. It does deliver exactly what the cover promises & the seed-monsters get a reasonable amount of screen-time.

The dvd has a decent, clear widescreen print of the film, so this is probably the best version of it there's ever been, and comes with a likeable 'making of' featurette and 10 trailers for other Full Moon productions.

A low budget film produced in the vein of 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes' - this film is a cult classic horror film. If it had been made by Renee Duchamp, it would have been art. This film should be packaged with its own seeds for home gardening. END

Mutant stumpy plant aliens Body Snatch their way to world domination one local yokel at a time in this pleasantly unserious B horror release from Full Moon Entertainment.

Director Peter Manoogian (Demonic Toys, Devil Dolls) and writer/producer Charles Band (the Puppet Master, Subspecies, Ghoulies and Trancers franchises) have crafted some laughably unserious horror nonsense for us. However, as I've spoken out on this before with other Full Moon releases, I struggle to understand how this received an "R" rating. There's no nudity, not much gore and almost no profanity. This is no more offensive than ScyFy's television movie Sharknado (2013).

In this semi-farcical Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) homage, botanical aliens land in a small town to enact phase one of their world domination--to take over the population of Comet Valley.

After some locals claim to find a meteorite, geologist and meteor expert Tom returns to the small town where he grew up to give a talk on the subject. By "give a talk" I mean present a slideshow to the dim-witted townsfolk in the local diner. The only bridge into town is out so Tom has the local bed and breakfast all to himself and the owner, his old flame Heidi (Andrea Roth; The Collector).

The invasion starts when a mutant alien tree (i.e., the "queen") vomits some goop all over a local who then cocoons and turns into a stumpy insect-seed pod monster hybrid called a "shooter" (perhaps akin to a "soldier" or "worker" ant). Just as in Starship Troopers (1997), Aliens (1986) or even the ant hill in your backyard, these aliens have different castes with different body forms. The tree sprays sticky pollen on another guy who presumably turns into a different type of infected monster.

A fairly conventional plot handled in an uninspiring fashion. The scene takes place in an area called Comet Valley. It's an isolated community made even more secluded by work being done on the only bridge into the valley, cutting everyone off from the outside. Some of the townsfolk are acting mighty peculiar. Some are intermittently psychic (when it suits the plot). The cast of oddballs is purposely kept to a chosen few: the snotty bed and breakfast owner, a disgruntled orchard owner, a snotty paranoid teenager with a video camera, a weird housekeeper/alien, the obligatory tough lawman, the town drunk, et cetera, all stock characters. Into this mix arrives a guy with past connections to half the townsfolk and none of it is good. It's obvious at the outset what's going on, that this is a shameless rip-off of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Unfortunately, it takes forever before suspicions start to take hold and the action actually begins and even then it's too little too late and poorly handled at that. This is low-low-low budget fare that can't rise above its humble background. The production values are minimal; the creatures are just a notch above sock puppets (they even `borrow' a bit of Critter action). Couple that with a predictable ending and there really isn't much to recommend this horror-lite Sci-fi flick. Eh.

Not a complete waste of time, but I certainly don't want to watch it again.
