It starts with a distressed mother in a pharmacy grabbing any and all pills that will help her stay awake because once she falls asleep, she knows what she will become. Let’s go back to the beginning where there is a space shuttle crash where organisms attach to people to turn them into something new, something weird, something scary.
Washington, D.C. psychiatrist, Carol Bennell (Nicole Kidman) has noticed that the people around her are acting strange but doesn’t know why. After years away, her ex-husband comes back into her and her son’s life and she notices him acting strange. After a few days, she notices that there are only a handful of people who are who they say they are and it is a race against the clock. With the help of her friend, Ben Driscoll (Daniel Craig), Carol races through Washington and Baltimore to find her son who may be the only way of stopping this epidemic before it is too late.
If you are looking for a good thrill, some chills and a whole lot of suspense, The Invasion is the film for you.
