DECOYS

Oh that silly Sci-Fi channel and their movies, who am I kidding I love that channel and their low budget flicks. This one right here is not one of my favorites but it looks good compared to some others and oh yeah it is a total knock off of "Species" but that is ok we'll get through it. This movie is far from perfect and to be honest is really not all together good per say but it has that Sci-Fi charm about it. You know what you are getting so you are never really truly disappointed; I tend to like horrible movies so here we go.

Up in Canada at a college all the kids are doing what one would expect from them, not studying and participating all kinds of sexual acts. As great as that might sound there is one problem for the guys in this flick, some of the hottest girls at the school are actually aliens that are killing the guys off after mating with them. Of course as easy as guys are to get into that position it is not hard for the aliens to pull this off, until one guy sees them in action. Luke is your average college kid until that fateful day when he sees them for what they are. Now as he is trying to prove their existence to his friends and at the same time trying not to be found guilty of the deaths on campus he must find a way to stop them.

Now while this is a rip off of other films like the one I said earlier it is still kinda fun at times although it is not groundbreaking in any way. As with most Sci-Fi Channel flicks the FX are wonderfully cheesy but the frozen bodies [they kill during mating by freezing the victims from the inside out] look excellent. In fact one of the first guys gets frozen while he is still.... Uh well you know. Also it makes sense that these cold creatures by nature are allergic to heat, how appropriate I guess. The acting is hit or miss depending on your taste, if you don't mind over the top acting or lack of talent in some cases then this is for you easy. Not every one is horrible but for the most part this is an over the top type flick.

Writers Tom Berry and Matthew Hastings [also director] while not completely original do supply so good moments and help this film from being truly horrible. Lead actor Corey Sevier is either horrible or greatly over the top depending on how you look at it. Personally at times I thought he was doing fine and at others not so much. Elias Toufexis who plays Roger in the film is either really annoying or actually funny; I kinda liked him in this. As a matter of fact the entire cast can be looked at the same way, horrible or over the top good.

This film will never be a classic and is really not for every one but if you like the Sci-Fi Channel and such this one may be for you. Honestly it was ok not to bad if you are in the mood for a flick like this, a rental maybe but I would catch it on the Sci-Fi Channel.

one thing I remember from this movie--the actresses were hot. This was good sci-fi fare.

I might like the original a bit more than the sequel for the very reason you prefer the sequel to the original! =) Haven't seen either one yet though.
