A group takes a grocery store hostage and looks for an alien king being hosted in one of the human bodies. As the director said it was explained to him when he got the job, this movie is basically The Thing meets Dog Day Afternoon. It's very low budget, the biggest names they could get were Tony Almeda from 24 and the black boyfriend from Six Feet Under, and there's really nothing original about it. That said, for what it was it was pretty good. Judging from the picture in the program book, I figured it could've gone either way: fun direct-to-video romp or unwatchable piece of crap. It was pretty watchable. The lack of CG with the alien creatures was refreshing.
