REVIEWS

Review by J. Campos (posted on 17-Jun-2009)

The horror classic as seen through the eyes of disaffected teenager Gabrielle Anwar. Since most people know the plot, I won't be spoiling it for anybody by saying it ends badly, except that the deal here is the play between Gabrielle and Billy Wirth, with whom she might have had a meaningful relationship in a different movie in which they would not have been pursued by mind numbing aliens. Or in a different world where they would not have been pursued by humans deadened by conformity to act and react like aliens... which is of course the "message" except that the movie doesn't preach at any moment. The closing image is chilling indeed. Go see it and skip the Nicole Kidman version: this one is the real deal.
