From deep space... the seed is planted... terror grows.
Aliens are cloning humans in this remake of the 1956 sci-horror, based on Jack Finney's novel. Donald Sutherland and Jeff Goldblum star.
Matthew Bennell (Sutherland) assumes that when a friend (Brooke Adams, The Dead Zone) complains of her husband's strange mood, it's a marital issue. However, he begins to worry as more people report similar observations. His concern is confirmed when writer Jack Bellicec (Goldblum) and his wife (Veronica Cartwright, Alien) discover a mutated corpse. Besieged by an invisible enemy, Bennell must work quickly before the city is consumed.
