      Audience Member Infection (aka Invasion): A somewhat intriguing premise, an alien invasion taking place in a remote park near Lawton, California, all captured in first person POV via a police dashcam, sounds promising enough. But after about 20 minutes of the same repetitive roads with video game quality dialogue is enough to make you want to hit the brakes and get off this tedious ride to nowhere. C- Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member It started out really interesting and intriguing then sorta plateaued for a bit and then shot downhill real fast. Not to nit pick cause movie characters never do what real people would do but these people just lol well they are worse than like Jason's victims running upstairs instead of out the front door. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review kevin w Ok, this is on the Flixster free movie page and listed as a Nicky Kidman film (named "Invasion" too, but this is actually "Infection" - although its not actually that either, its the old worms-in-the-ear-so-now-yer-a-mind-slave routine stolen from the Star Trek franchise!) ... but its not, yah? Instead its a terribly monotonous drive through country roads at night shot entirely on a dashboard cam presumably in a police cruiser, most the action merely audible over the cruiser radio (ala Orson Welles "War Of The Worlds" radio broadcast). This is actually torture, and therein the only horror to this. Escape. Avoid. Run. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Infection (aka Invasion) is a very clever concept film. Shot entirely from the view of a patrol car dash cam, it tells a real time story of a meteor strike in a rural town and the biological infection of the town's residents. Great story and well executed, if only by virtue of its uniqueness of perspective. Overall however, there is too much reliance on the visual aspect. If the dialogue were stronger and more descriptive, if it followed the formula of a radio play in telling the story, it would have been a much better film Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Essentially a found-footage version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Invasion would have been awesome if it had more fully played itself out--the film is technically 81 minutes long but for some reason features an unnecessary twenty-minute long end credits sequence, making it only 60 minutes. Shot entirely from the dash camera of a police car investigating strange events, Invasion is entertaining and creepy in parts with only a few bits of boredom, but it fails to fully follow through and instead abruptly ends at the hour mark instead of proceeding on to a more compelling conclusion. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is TERRIBLE. With all caps. Just totally, horribly and irreversably terrible. It makes NO sense. The acting is putrid. The plot is stupid and mind-numbingly boring. There are multiple stretches of the film that is simply a dashboard cam shot driving through the woods for literally 10 minutes at a time, nothing else. Also, can someone explain how is there a score accompanying a found footage film?? Bottom of the barrel film quality, direction, sound editing, and everything else you can imagine. I find it necessary to point out that I absolutely love terrible horror movies. 'Troll 2', 'Plan 9' and all SyFi original films are always high on my list of pleasures in life, but this is beyond even my finely-tuned bad movie taste. Avoid this at all costs including bowel surgery, eating broken glass, and lighting yourself on fire. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
