Hailed as "a first-rate suspense thriller" (Newsday), this intense sci-fi adventure is a "chilling" (Leonard Maltin) and "stunning" (Cosmopolitan) thrill ride that will send your pulse rate soaring! From a screenplay by W.D. Richter, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Philip Kaufman, creator of The Right Stuff and Rising Sun, directs a dynamic cast featuring Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Brooke Adams and Leonard Nimoy in a taut and terrifying tale with mesmerising style, lightning-fast pacing and awe-inspiring special effects.
An alien race is launching an insidious invasion...and it's up to two mere mortals to stop it! The terror begins in San Francisco, where one by one the residents suddenly lose their individuality and become drone-like shadows of their former selves. As the phenomena spreads, two Department of Health workers, Matthew (Sutherland) and Elizabeth (Adams), uncover the horrifying truth: mysterious pods are cloning humans - and destroying the originals! The unworldly invasion grows stronger with each passing minute, hurling Matthew and Elizabeth into a desperate race to save not only their own lives, but the future of the entire human race. The suspense, action and terror build with each twist and turn, escalating to a spellbinding climax that "literally chills the blood!" (The Hollywood Reporter)...and leaves you numb with its nail-biting tension!
