Invasion of the Pod People movie scenes

Like several other films by The Asylum, Invasion of the Pod People is a mockbuster whose release coincided with the premiere of The Invasion, although the plot of Pod People borrowed heavily from the 1956 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers, of which The Invasion is a reworking.

Invasion of the pod people review by decker shado


The film is about Melissa (Erica Roby), a young woman living in Los Angeles, who works for a large corporation.

One night, there is a freak meteor shower. The next morning, Melissa goes about her day but as time passes, slowly becomes aware that those around her have changed since the meteorites fell. It's as if their minds are no longer their own. For example, Melissa's supervisor Samantha seduces her into a passionate lesbian encounter, even though Samantha had never shown any signs of being a lesbian.

Melissa soon realizes that the townsfolk have been replaced by a race of aliens known as Pod People. The aliens grow in large seed pods and gradually take the form of a particular person, eventually taking over their bodies once the growth process is complete. The Pod People try to take control of Melissa, but she flees the town to warn humanity of the invasion in progress.

  • Reception

    Stefan Birgir Stefansson of heavily criticized the film, writing that it "Looks like it was made by a film student who thinks he's the real deal, even though he can't crasp [sic] how light or sound really works. An idiotic remake that puts everyone involved to shame and perhaps, a place in hell! And yes, pod-people=lesbians..." Dread Central wrote a mixed review, as they felt it was "okay for what it is; an instantly forgettable retread neither deserving of much praise nor scorn."
