Seriously, anything else picked at random would be better.

While I agree that a well planned plot twist that leaves the viewer with a bit of ambiguity can make a film.

First, it's a one hour film, followed by 20 minutes of credits---WTF?

INVASION is an experiment in SciFi and Horror that reintroduced the "found-footage" film years before CLOVERFIELD or REC. It is entirely unique in that it tells its story in a single, continuous shot that is taken from the dashboard camera of a police cruiser. Deputy Brick is dispatched to investigate a meteor landing. Upon arrival, it is learned that the meteor is host to a parasitic alien, which begins infecting anyone it comes in contact with deep within the remote state park. What is most interesting about this shooting style is that it forces the viewer into a first-person account of the events, while offering a variety perspectives as different characters enter the vehicle and assume the role of the narrator. INVASION'S greatest strength also becomes its greatest weakness, in that the static camera is strictly focused on the road the entire duration of the film while the characters exchange dialog over the radio. Conceptually, this is a brilliant move in securing the film's integrity, but the average viewer is not likely to be entertained by watching an hour of actionless driving on an empty road. It does manage to successfully create a large-scale invasion on a non-existent budget, however, and is an interesting watch for SciFi fans.

Worst si-fi yawner I have ever seen.The cover box describes it as "A risky tour de force,a stunner,challenging,hypnotic".A 80 some minute vuew of a lonnnnng dirt back road(TOUR de farce).A STUNNER,(budget $25,4 gallons of gas and batteries for the spotlight.CHALLENGING(to anyone who can actually watch this dreck for longer than 15 minutes). HYPNOTIC as watching a cat sleeping.I suspect that reviewers that gave this thing 5 and 4 star ratings were the actors that were in this camcorder made zzzzzzz grade god awfull spamola.Not worth watching this thing(even as a free rental).

This is not a bad film. Interesting concept (alien invasion) presented through the eyes of a single character. It has a few good moments as well as some stupid ones. In spots the time frame is very compressed. The biggest problem I had is that the main character does some extremely stupid things every now and then and there is no explanation offered. The other problem is that the film is short, just 65 minutes. The producers make up for that by including over 15 minutes of credits. I'm not sure if the actor's pets were credit because after a while I was zoning out.

Watch at your own risk.

OK, if you take into consideration that it's a very low-budget sci-fi movie, then the film is pretty passable about a meteor shower containing organisms that turn people into puppets of alien parasites. Having taken the low budget into considertation, there are a number of shortcomings to the movie. First, it's a one hour film, followed by 20 minutes of credits---WTF? Second, A LOT of the time is dead time, with nothing happening; that amount of time could have been cut down, or better yet, additional material added. Third, I kept hoping that the foul-mouthed, self-centered bimbo was going to get it.

A real stinker. Read the reviews. High Definition Dash Cam,..huh?
Almost a living dead movie,.. but not a little bit as interesting
if you think living dead movies are that. Meteors carrying
catapillers from outer space which are somehow getting into human idiots.
Teen prom queen driving a police car endlessly on bad roads in some park
crying and screaming,... seeing zombies of her boyfriend and others
including her self. Uh duh,...save your coins. Hope I did not spoil
the flick for you.
